Green Apps To Green Your Life

Making small steps about your lifestyle and changing the way you do things all goes into the pot.  Some of the latest green apps available for your mobile phone bring sustainability to your fingertips; allow you the opportunity to make some changes about your environmental impact.

Battery Extender Lite looks to extend the standby time on your Smartphone, by up to 30%.  Tapping into the settings on your mobile, you can add an extra days charge to your mobile from 3 days to 4 days.  Smartphone’s are fab but they do go through battery power.  Over a year it means you will charge you’re mobile 31 times less, hurrah. 

101 Green Tips App:  Looks to help you with a green tips on how to reduce your impact on the planet as well as saving you a bunch of money, its designed to make every aspect of your life a little greener.  With such tips as, reminders to switch off your lights, turn the thermostat down, ways to insulate your home, or reminding you to switch off your appliances etc.

A Real Tree: the clue is in the title; you can purchase this app for .50p, when you do, a tree will be planted in anywhere of 12 countries typically they will be countries in tropical areas who are in the midst of trying to fight deforestation.  The great thing is that you get a ‘virtual tree’ as a badge that you can put on your Facebook page.

Carbon Tracker:  Helps you track your movements via your inbuilt GPS system on your mobile, it helps you understand how you are generating your carbon footprint but it can set you goals every month so that you can reduce the amount you waste.

And my personal favorite.  Green Me, if you’re into writing out lists, because it helps you to focus, then this app is for you.  It displays a calendar which asks you to do list five green things to do that day.  It’s really helpful, as the more things you do; the darker the green color on the application goes.  We like.
