What is Green Apes?
GreenApes is a social media platform where you can build your sustainable profile and become a source of inspiration for your peers and the whole world.
At greenApes, we work to reward green living with the mission of promoting sustainable lifestyles. We try to break down the complexity of environmental issues by bringing attention to simple daily choices, and making them more fun to pursue.
greenApes is open to everyone who cares about the planet and believes that new media offer great opportunities to foster change.
How serious are we?
Yes, we gave the project a playful touch but we’re very serious about our mission and the content of the platform (check out our team and our Jungle Guardians). We just believe that rewarding positive behaviors is more effective than scaring people away for their negative impacts.
The origin of the name? Well, we humans are apes, and in this community you will find the green ones.
Who do we cooperate with?
Besides engaging individuals, we are also committed to helping organizations to improve their environmental performance and strengthen a sustainable culture among their collaborators.
We take care of this with a dedicated customizable application that has been designed to engage and motivate people affiliated with organizations (supporters of NGOs, university students, company employees, etc) to become more sustainable citizens.
Our actions make a difference
Avoiding red meat in your next meal corresponds to saving 4000 liters of water, commuting by bike (instead of driving there) can avoid the emission of 300kg of CO2 per year, recycling aluminum cans saves 95% of the resources needed to produce a brand new one. It’s hard to say that our daily choices are irrelevant for the fate of our planet.
But it’s not just about the impact of each action, you also make a difference every time you are vocal about your sustainable behaviors by inspiring people around you. You can be a source of motivation and a leader, grabbing your friends attention by showing how simple, yet meaningful, your actions are.
greenApes is here to reward your green actions and help you communicate your sustainable lifestyle via social media. Bugging nobody and inspiring everyone.
