How do long-lasting heat waves, mega-droughts, mass extinction and flooded coastal cities sound to you? Perhaps like scenes from a science fiction movie! And what about the 2000 trees that are cut down per minute in the Amazon or even the 99% of the world’s fresh water that is not available for human use due to contamination? Well, you would probably say that it is scaremongering. However, the aforementioned are real facts. The huge CO2 emissions created by human activities, not only lead to the global increase of temperature, but also, according to scientists, threaten the existence of the world as we know it. It is clear by now that this will not change unless we personally get involved and take a brave stand against it. And for sure, we need a powerful tool tο do that!
Sustainability is one of the most trending terms of the 21st century. And there is a reason for it.
During recent years, green energy and sustainable development have been broadly discussed worldwide. However, the transition towards a more sustainable world is neither simple nor effortless. While countries and companies struggle to create sustainable solutions and a greener world, we are left wondering how to contribute to such a massive issue.
The important thing to realize though, is that the ecosystem services? and natural resources that our economy depend upon belong to all of us and are directly influenced by our choices.
We at GREENWILL choose to speak. GreenAdvisor is a revolutionary tool that allows you to instantly share your sustainable experiences.
GreenAdvisor is a socially-driven web-based mobile platform powered by GREENWILL, a global non-profit initiative with more than 100 members around the world, that enables users to rate both businesses and organizations, including hotels, restaurants, banks, schools, events, factories etc. according to their eco-friendliness and sustainability. That means that there will be parameters such as energy usage, water usage, climate control, recycling, cleanliness, transportation, environmental policies, materials usage and many more that users will be able to evaluate. GreenAdvisor seeks to democratize the green movement in the same way that TripAdvisor has democratized the travel industry.
The consumers will finally have the power to put pressure on businesses and institutions and incentivize them to act greener. For the first time they will be able to contribute to changes and progress for the environment, not just themselves. So, if you want a safer and greener future, take this great opportunity and leave your mark on GREENWILL’s effort! Check our campaign on kickstarter and help us create a sustainable world!
