    GoodGuide

    by GoodGuide, Inc.

    Changing what you buy and how you shop is another way to help the Earth. Some products are less toxic than others and certain companies have better environmental track records. This app sorts over 70,000 food, personal care, household cleaners, toy, and paper products. You just use your iDevice camera as a bar code scanner and find out everything you need to know about it. From there, create shopping lists for food that's healthy and socially responsible while blacklisting items that aren't.

    Seafood Watch

    by Monterey Bay Aquarium

    This app is a must-have if you are a seafood lover. Read up on what seafood is sourced responsibly and which restaurants serve "ocean-friendly" fish. Some fish are being wiped out because of overzealous fishing, so it's good to be more conscious of what you're eating. It shows you what's ok to eat with traffic light colors. When the fish gets an "avoid" recommendation, it gives you alternative seafood options.

The more informed you are, the better decisions you will make about your new, green lifestyle. The downside of this app is it hasn't been updated in a while. However, the information it provides is valuable and the quality and scope of this app makes it worth downloading to get the sense of how polluted your city is.

    Locavore

    by Hevva Corp.

    Eating locally is better for the environment. It keeps you from buying into corporations that ship their produce thousands of miles to the store and gets you to support local farmers who cultivate green space. Besides the eco-friendly factor of eating locally, it also helps you eat seasonally. Eating seasonally means you will be eating fresher and tastier produce. Strawberries grown on a farm and picked yesterday are more flavorful and fresher than food grown in a greenhouse and shrink-wrapped.

    iGrowIt

    by appgrading.com

    If you want to live more sustainably, look into growing your own food. I personally don't believe there's such a thing as having a black thumb. If you have trouble getting plants to flourish, it's probably because you don't understand how to take care of them. Download iGrowIt and look up what produce you can plant now and how to properly plant and nurture them.

    PaperKarma

    by Readabl, Inc.

    Even for the non-ecologically minded, junk mail is an annoyance.

PaperKarma was developed in order to give smartphone users an easy way to solve their junk mail problems. When you receive mail you don't want, take a picture of it and the app will contact the sender to take your name off their mailing list. While not foolproof, it will cut out most of your unwanted mail.

    Zipcar

    by Zipcar

    Zipcar is a car-sharing service that's great for those in cities and encourages a car-optional lifestyle. If you don't need to drive a car every day, why do it? Not only will you be greener, you will save money on gas, loan payments, and maintenance. The Zipcar app has its flaws, but is good for reference to see what cars are available and any upcoming reservations when you're on the go. However, for actual reservations, I suggest you use the full website. At the moment, the app can be a little glitchy when it comes to bookings.

    Light It Right

    by WGBH

    One of my biggest pet peeves is when people leave the lights on unnecessarily. Light It Right is a simple game that's great for kids and adults. You get points when you turn off the light in a room when it's empty and turn it on when there's somewhere there. This app won't directly improve the greenness of your lifestyle, but might help the youngsters in your life to be more aware of their light usage.
