These apps can help you live green

Smartphones have transformed our lives in countless ways over the last decade. A world without smartphones, and their seemingly infinite apps, is almost unimaginable today. Now, some of these apps are seeking to transform the world all over again -- making it a greener and more sustainable place to call home. These apps can help you live green. 




Oroeco is a carbon footprint calculator. The app seeks to create Climate Heros by tracking your energy consumption across all aspects of modern life -- from electricity to transportation, food and leisure activities and helping you to make choices that matter. 




Bikemap is a GPS cycling route database designed by cyclists for cyclists. The app allows you to download maps and routes of bike paths and bike-friendly roads for users in over 80 countries. With turn-by-turn voice direction, you will never get lost again. It even offers information on the terrain, elevation and slope of the route. 


Refresh Go Green 


The Refresh Go Green app seeks to help users go green with Simple Steps that move us toward sustainability. There are 52 Simple Step tips that offer information on transforming your home, health and habits, one step at a time. 


Love food hate waste


A third of the food grown on our planet goes to waste. Love food hate waste seeks to optimize food consumption, one household at a time. The app offers a cookbook to put the food you already have in your refrigerator to good use, as well as a shopping list tool, storage and consumption planner. 


BentallGreenOak hopes these apps can help you live green.
