about the app
Lighter Footprint is designed to help people build better habits—for themselves, and the planet.
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.”
