For those looking to be more mindful of their carbon footprint, the Changers app is a handy CO2 monitor for multiple parts of your life. In an effort to encourage you to make more sustainable transportation choices, the app makes you accountable for your choices—essentially it's like a fitness tracker, but for the well-being of the environment.

In order to reward people who choose to take the bus or ride a bicycle, the app provides badges and 'Recoins' to users, which is a virtual currency that can be put towards offsetting trips made by cars, planes and other modes of transportation. With this kind of data at your fingertips presented with such striking visuals, it's a lot easier to see what kind of impact your personal carbon footprint is making in the world.
