The Yayzy app was released for iOS and it utilizes personal spending data to calculate the environmental impact of each purchase, an Android version will be released at a later date.
Users can link the Yayzy app to their bank account and a carbon footprint is calculated using data from Vital Metrics, which is also used by Google, Microsoft, and government organizations in both the United Kingdom and the United States. Each carbon footprint is broken down by the individual items purchased and customers can also sign up for a monthly subscription to carbon offsetting initiatives.
"Our solution with Yayzy is to make environmental impact ‘up close and personal’ and the action to tackle it super easy, all via your phone," said Mankaran Ahluwalia, the co-founder and CEO of Yayzy.
