Is Your App Eco-Friendly?

     Why would a company not want its app to be “green?” Besides talking from a design standpoint, your app may want to consider improving its eco-conscious reputation. The idea of an eco-friendly app is sort of difficult to define. However, there is still undoubtedly a difference between an app that does its part to improve the environment, and one that simply does not. Besides doing your part for the environment, having an app for your customers to enjoy that creates a reputation of social responsibility is invaluable. To help you both directly and indirectly improve the eco-consciousness of your mobile app, here are a couple ideas to consider.

Use Eco-Friendly Practices In The Design Phase

Using eco-conscious practices when creating your app is likely the best way to manifest a reputation of social responsibility. Such practices may include using energy saving machines, especially computers. In addition, outfitting your office with eco-friendly lighting, as well as making your company run on a paperless system will do wonders to boost the eco-consciousness of your app. There are many other ways to increase the eco-friendliness of your app and company as a whole. In fact, there are just about as many ways as your imagination will allow. One of the best ways to create a more eco-friendly reputation for your company is to do so with an open mind. The more little ways that you can think of to make the design, and all other aspects of your app, more helpful to the environment, the more likely users and the business community in general are to notice. This is a huge part of changing your app’s reputation.

Making A Donation To An Environmental Agency

Another useful way to make your app more eco-friendly is to work with, or at the very least, make a donation to an environmental agency. Whether it is to the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF), or an organization such as Save Our Shores, making a donation can really help your app and company’s reputation. It does not even have to be a large amount, however, the more frequently you do donate, the more impressive it will be. Doing so has the potential to rub off on your company in a positive way. What’s more, if you really want to make your app seem “green,” lend its services to a charitable cause, or challenge your customers to make donations that you will in turn match. And if all else fails, gather up your employees and volunteer with an environmental organization. It will look good for your app, and provide a bit of networking for your company in the process. Getting involved with an environmental organization is undeniably one of the best, and likely quickest ways to make your app appear to be more eco-friendly.


In terms of making your company and its mobile app(s) greener, the possibilities really are endless. Using simple ideas, such as making donations to environmental organizations, or perhaps just simply having your employees volunteer, can improve the eco-conscious reputation of your company. Making your app more environmentally friendly, it can be as simple as changing many of your business practices, especially those related to the making design process. This may mean using energy saving devices, or be as simple as having your staff turn out the lights when they are not in a room.
