If you need incentive to reduce your carbon footprint, this climate change game is one way to go. Although people will generally agree saving the earth is a good thing, most don't want to actually put in the work to change or alter their daily habits. To address this, Oroeco recently launched an app that gamifies environmentally friendly acts. App founder Ian Monroe explains "public engagement is the biggest missing piece in solving our climate change puzzle."

Even though an eco crisis might seem overwhelming to tackle, individual action is the key to progress with this issue. Available for free, the iOS app calculates your personal carbon footprint and contextualizes the information based on a local average. From there the climate change game offers offsetting acts you can take, save money and earn badges.
