We often say that you cannot manage something unless you can measure it.
The same can be said about our individual efforts at being more sustainable. But what if we could start measuring all the changes we make?
One Million Women - a climate change action and sustainability focused behaviour change organisation - has done just that. It has developed a free app that helps anyone to make changes in their lives to become more sustainable.
The 1 Million Women app gives you the tools to cut carbon pollution in the key areas of your everyday life, focusing on home energy savings and clean energy options, minimising food waste, reducing overconsumption, investing and divesting your money wisely, sustainable fashion, low-impact travel and more.
By using the app, you will join a growing community acting on climate change through the way we live and will see the impact in real-time that we have when we all act together.
The 1 Million Women App allows you to:
- Join daily actions to cut your carbon pollution
Join actions every day in themes that you want to explore - including tackling food waste, living a zero waste life, going plastic-free, reducing your household energy consumption, using your money as a force for good and saying goodbye to fast fashion - plus more.
Choose whether you'd like to undertake easy, moderate or challenging actions.
Monitor your impact by seeing your carbon savings for each action and see the collective impact of people undergoing the same actions as you.
Learn simple tips on how to undergo each action and read compelling articles on different aspects of the actions you're undertaking.
- See your impact in real time
See your individual carbon savings as well as the 'power of us' when we all take the same daily actions together.
See our collective impact in real time through our map showing where in the world people are undertaking actions.
- Connect with groups locally and globally
Search for groups around the world that are doing things for the love of Earth.
Whether it's a local clothes swap group or a no plastics movement, a crop swapping community or a compost sharing street, groups in the 1 Million Women app give you the opportunity to connect with like-minded people who are acting on climate change.
- Join in on conversations
Join a live conversation feed with people who are passionate about climate action around the world.
