MEDFORD, N.J., June 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the White House announcement that the U.S. will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord, one company is bringing to market a unique mobile app that will allow individual citizens to continue doing their part in keeping up the fight against climate change.
"Greenie," a new app developed by Micro Integration Services Inc. (MIS), of Medford, NJ, can be downloaded for free to users' smart phones and will track their carbon imprint while providing tips and incentives for saving energy and replacing carbon dioxide (CO2) with much needed oxygen-generating trees to combat climate change.
"We know there are millions of people out there who firmly believe in global warming and are committed to doing their part to reverse it," said MIS President, Glenn Smith. "In light of our Administration's current disinterest in sustaining many climate change policies, people are angry. We wanted to create something that would give them the tools to continue their part in the battle every day."
Launching with the theme line "Get the app. Save the planet," Greenie educates users with energy saving tips and actions they can take to increase their energy efficiency and shrink their carbon footprint. The app will provide users with a daily summary of how much CO2 they've eliminated, how much oxygen they've generated, and how much money they've saved, based on the actions they've engaged in and recorded on the app. The app also tracks the results of all users signed into the Greenie app, with daily updates,
Scientists overwhelmingly agree that global warming is a real phenomenon and primarily the result of too much CO2 in the atmosphere. CO2 traps heat surrounding the earth, which prevents the sun's energy from escaping, effectively raising the earth's temperature. CO2 is mainly caused by the burning of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas.
Among the many energy friendly actions that can be taken by Greenie users, planting trees through the U.S. Forestry Service is one of the most recommended actions, since trees convert already released CO2 into oxygen.
"Many people don't realize that one mature tree can generate enough oxygen to support two people every day," said Smith. "That's why it's so critical that we continue to plant trees to replace the forests we lose due to fires, harvesting, drought and disease."
Greenie users can have single trees, or groups of trees, planted in their name, or in the name of loved ones or family pets, and receive memorial certificates.
The Greenie app is expected to be available by late June and more information is available at greenieapp.com
