This App is an overall guide to sustainable living.  It offers over 100 everyday green projects such as bringing reusable bags to the grocery store or using double-sided printing. Additionally, Green Genie recommends the best books and websites to learn more about “going green.” Green Genie is complete with useful guides to recycling, identifying plastics, and many more useful tips. AND the coolest part is that you or other Green Genie users can submit original project ideas to keep the database expanding with inventive, out-of-the-box ways to be sustainable!

Energy Efficient Lighting, Facts and Figures on Light Bulbs

Carbon Footprint Calculator, Goal-setter

Carbon Tracker allows you to calculate your transportation carbon footprint based on travel time and method, whether it’s by plane, train, or automobile.  You can also set monthly goals and track successes.

6.     GET GREEN ($0.99)

7.     GREEN CHARGING ($0.99)

Device Charging, Eliminate Excess Plug-in Time

Green Charging is aimed at reducing the amount of energy wasted when we leave our phones, laptops, or other devices plugged in for too long.  Green Charging sounds an alarm or vibrates when your device is fully charged so you do not use excess energy.

Just Science highlights the easy-to-understand video map of climate change recently released by the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) study.  The app features a color-coded map of the world that displays how the Earth’s land temperature has changed between 1800 and 2009. Monthly data from local recording stations produce a red, green, and blue global visualization of the temperature’s deviation from historical average.  More details available here.
