Apps that take advantage of economies of scale that would be wasteful if we did it alone are known as group saving apps. For example, buying olive oil in bulk might be more environmentally friendly as well as saving you money. If you get five large 10 litre containers instead of 50 1 litre containers, you can save physical resources and the transportation of fresh air between all those single bottles and the extra cardboard boxes with inserts needed for transport. You see where we’re going here.
From ride shares to bulk buys, here are the top smartphone group saving apps to help you take advantage of economies of scale.
For now the list is empty, but please feel free to recommend your favourites on Twitter. You can reach us @Greenermobiles.
