Trending in tech: 🌎✨
Conscious consumerism has become bigger than a short-lived fad.

In the pre-pandemic times, brands started to notice more people questioning their lifestyle choices and pushing for a change (thanks Greta!). Responsibility has been used as a Gen-Z marketing tool increasingly appealing to other demographics as well.

One such app is YAYZY, an eco-lifestyle tracking app that shows the carbon footprint of your purchases in real-time.

The makers of the app built it inspired by the belief that action begins with information. Their app raises awareness of sustainable lifestyle alternatives to travel, fashion, food, and more.

Now, with all the surprises that 2020 brought us, people are cutting back on excessive shopping and considering other lifestyle choices, cooking bread at home, anyone?

Consumers are not alone. Makers are increasingly more interested in combating climate change by combining Fintech and Cleantech.
