GetGreen App Review - Make Climate-Positive Change

The effects of climate change can be felt wherever you are. Its environmental impacts are gradual, insidious, and are experienced differently?some worse off than others. As a result, people are taking steps to address this issue, starting off with climate change apps that raise awareness, make our planet a safer place, and help us prepare better for the future.

Among such top climate change apps, GetGreen is a leading name. The app was built on a vision that every individual and business could make a difference in climate change. It suggests eco-friendly actions you can take and behaviors you can adopt to help fight the climate crisis. In addition, you can earn rewards for your sustainable activities and collaborate with others in the GetGreen community.

In this blog, we will do an in-depth review of the GetGreen app. We will discuss its features, pros, and cons and rate the app by taking a few points into account.

So, stay with us until the end of this blog to get introduced to the amazing abilities this climate-friendly app has to offer.

GetGreen App Review - An Introduction

GetGreen was created by Emerald Technology Group, a Seattle-based company founded in 2020. Its founders saw a need for an app aimed at people and also organizations early in their sustainability journey – those with good intentions but lacking solid information to guide their actions. The thinking then as now was that alternatives, such as apps that require people to perform calculations to determine a carbon footprint, were too complex to meet the needs of those new to sustainability.

Even with the growing interest in sustainability from consumers as well as businesses, the sustainability app space is nascent. Currently available solutions for individuals are often of the carbon footprint calculation model and lack personalization or localization; solutions for businesses are often oriented toward carbon accounting. Few available options provide a clear pathway to the specific actions that will lower emissions.

GetGreen is for people and companies that want to help solve the climate crisis. It’s guided by a belief that each person and each business can make a difference by making informed choices about what we do, what we buy and how we act. And that the individual actions of many add up to effect positive change.

It’s fun, engaging and easy-to-use.

“Climate change is overwhelming. Doing something about it doesn’t have to be. GetGreen helps people act on their intentions and values by making it easy to make climate-positive changes in their lives.”

- Brian Ringer, CEO and Co-founder

Millions of individual, climate-positive actions are needed to help solve the climate crisis. GetGreen helps people identify and take those actions. It vets and qualifies planet-positive options, taking the guesswork out of figuring out where to start and what to do. GetGreen also learns about your interests and adapts to offer increasingly relevant suggestions.

You can choose from hundreds of actions to make an impact and even earn rewards (called leaves) as you make steady progress towards making climate friendly changes to your daily habits and lifestyle. Examples of eco-friendly suggestions include switching to natural and compostable cleaning solutions, swapping out standard light bulbs to an LED light bulb, walking or taking public transportation rather than driving your car, and more.

2. Support climate projects

Awards and Accolades

The application and service has seen quick adoption and success since its launch in March 2022. In just a few short weeks, users have reported new actions resulting in tens of tons of avoided carbon emissions. And, the GetGreen app is already starting to make a difference at the University of Washington and in Duluth, Minnesota.

The GetGreen team has launched a pilot project with the University of Washington involving hundreds of college students that are a part of UW’s Honors program. The students are using a customized version of GetGreen  to adopt and track new sustainable behaviors, and are competing to see who can raise the most donations through their climate-friendly actions. All of the proceeds will go towards the school’s campus sustainability fund.

GetGreen has also been selected to be a part of a funded demonstration 2022 class created by Minnesota’s clean energy accelerator Grid Catalyst. The team will be working with Ecolibrium3 (“Eco3”) and the residents of Duluth, MN in support of the city’s climate action plan to help reduce the city’s greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by the year 2050.

The Eco3 team will offer Duluthians a customized version of the GetGreen app that will make it easy to make a difference. The items in the city’s climate action plan will be turned into actions in the GetGreen app, and residents can learn about these actions and keep track of their progress directly using the application.


Get Green is available as a free download for iOS and Android devices in the Apple and Android app stores. A premium subscription tier, GetGreen+, is $4.99 a month and offers users the ability to make an even greater impact by directing earned incentives or “leaves” to their favorite nature-based carbon removal projects.
