How It Works


Whether it be how happy we feel or our impact on the planet, the things we do everyday matter. But sometimes, the better choice isn't clear. What's better: buying local or organic? What's worse: having steak every night or driving to work every morning?

The Lighter Footprint app helps you make changes that improve your life, and the environment. Backed by the latest scientific data, see how little habits can make a big difference.


“Habits are the invisible architecture of everyday life.”

Who It’s For



The Lighter Footprint app can help you live a healthy, happy life, in ways that are tailored to you, and where you live.



The app helps companies that value sustainability to incorporate positive green habits into their workplace culture.

Why It Matters


We know our habits have ripple effects, but those ripples aren’t always clear. By showing exactly how our actions ripple out, we can design our habits to benefit ourselves and the planet.

By taking a light-hearted yet evidence-based approach to ecological impact, the Lighter Footprint app helps people chose from a dizzying array of options, empowering communities in Vancouver and beyond.


“Learning to choose is hard… Learning to choose well in a world of unlimited possibilities is harder still.”

—Barry Schwartz, the paradox of choice
