Fun!

I really like seeing an estimated tally of how much of a difference buzzed actions save over time. The challenges can be fun too. It’s great to see others and the ideas they come up with. I definitely recommend! I do have one suggestion: can the developers update the book and movie options? There are so many great books and films that are educational and inspiring about the environment and sustainability. Please add more to the lists for each action, thanks!
Superficial
by 22lydiajoy on 2020/01/13 22:53
I LOVE that people are making lifestyle changes that benefit the environment. Unfortunately, the actions I see people doing the most often are superficial things that even if EVERYBODY did, we would still be facing some of the same problems with the environment that we’re facing now. So, I have some ideas. 1)However, many of these things require you to buy something, which can be very counter productive (CO2 emissions from the gathering of materials, transportation of materials, labor- are these workers getting fair pay or are they children or slaves, no I’m not exaggerating- transportation to store, and so on). Will this item be used enough times that the waste and emissions it saves will be greater than what was needed to be created? Or will it be throw away when it goes out of style? 2) Also, I would love to see things like choosing to repurpose or reuse something rather than throwing it away when it breaks and buying another new thing. Or, choosing to buy something used, such as clothes, furniture, and appliances, rather than new. This actually has quite a large impact 3) I would like to see that some of the harder, and more impactful things give more points than simply filling up you hydro flask (e.g. patching holes in the ceiling/ window, creating greywater recycling system, buying local produce, choosing second hand, setting up a compost, etc). I would like this because many people are getting points for things they would do anyways (which isn’t a bad thing!), but the people who are putting more time and effort are getting the same, if not less, points than those who are buzzing nothing except their reusable water bottle, silverware (that they probably bought new for really cheap online, I wonder who made that for you?), and riding the bus to school. I’m not saying that these are bad things to do (except the unconscious consumerism), but should these people who are only doing the same thing over and over again be getting more points than people who are branching out and trying new things. Not to diss anyone but..... 4) I know some people would not use this, but personally, I would love to be able to track my negative impact as well to get a perspective of net impact, if it’s positive or negative. These would be things like buying something new that was probably cheaper than it should’ve been (as opposed to second hand or fair trade), tracking waste that I produce, every time I charge my phone/computer/ etc since that uses lots of energy, adding gas to my car, eating meat (measures by type and ounces/ grams), cheese, or eggs, forgetting my reusable bag/ cup/ silverware/ etc.. A little bit like having your own earth overshoot day 5) I think it would be cool if there was a section that taught about conscious consumerism, activism, the waste cycle, from production to landfill, fair trade, organic farming practices, palm oil and deforestation, renewable energy, fossil fuels, and the list goes on! ******I believe that educating people is the biggest impact that ANY of us can have!!!****** Anyways, this was a veeeeeeeerrrrrry long review, but I hope the developers see this and continue to improve the app. This is a GREAT app idea, but has room for improvement, just like all of us!!!
Nice App
by glorms on 2019/12/17 09:23
I love this app, but as other people have said: -I wish we could delete unintentional buzzes. I’ve accidentally buzzed before without adding the picture, and couldn’t just buzz it again and add it because that wouldn’t be fair. -I wish there were more activities, because there actually aren’t that many specific to my lifestyle, and although the custom sustainable action is nice, i wish there were more activities with the specific numbers of waste/water/co2 saving specific to it -I wish we could favorite activities we do a lot, and categorize ones that are impossible for us somewhere else so they don’t clog up all the others.
App won’t load
by MaxMMasterson on 2019/08/28 22:58
When I first opened it, I answered some preliminary questions, and then it wouldn’t load no matter how many times I closed out of the app and opened it up or used different wi-fi.
Decent

I know from experience that saving flushes is awful. It makes the bathroom smell like pee. It stains the toilet bowl. For the love of humanity, FLUSH THE TOILET
Literally so much fun
by iheartpuppies51 on 2019/05/01 15:48
I adore this app! I really hope more people join in on the fun. Would love even more sustainable choices to buzz!!
Love this!!
by Kansas Kari on 2019/04/24 04:46
I just discovered this app today, and I absolutely love it! It’s fun, it’s easy, and it’s mission is wonderful. But only 18 people have rated this? Where are all of the users? I found this app on Apples “Apps we’re loving.” Surely more than 18 people would have caught on? And the last update was a year ago. Hopefully they pick up again, because I’d love to see some new actions or challenges. I know there are active users on this, but more than 2 challenges would be really nice. Lovely app, though! I don’t usually write reviews, but I decided to express my thoughts.
Welcome video for whites only?
by LauralO'Rourke on 2019/04/20 17:10
It’s a big world and you guys obviously only interact with your only white people. I hear there’s good money in marketing to your kind but not sure sustainability is it. Maybe target practice or sheep shagging?
Fun and intriguing; suggestions for updates
by Allycat595125 on 2018/10/23 13:35
This is a great way to really see how much we can have an impact on the environment (and our wallets) by being involved in sustainable actions. I do have a couple suggestions for possible updates for the app, though: 1) I wish we could mark activities with a star or heart and send them to a “My Habits” section/ folder as easy access for the ones we do the most. 2) I also wish we could label activities into a “Least Used” folder, because for example at this point there are some that I just cannot do, and I think it’d be nice if those activities were set into a folder on their own away from the rest. 3) I would love to have to option to label and put activities into a “To-Do List” or “Goals” section, which I think would make it easier to visually see which objectives you aim to do next. 4) Finally, it would be great if the app users had the option to submit their own ideas for new sustainability actions (I like that we can add our own with the “sustainable action” tab, but I mean more along the lines of actually sending it to the app managers to determine if they can add that new activity to the full list of actions)
Fun environmental impact tracking
by nicknamehere22 on 2018/07/29 22:17
Who knew tracking your positive environmental impacts could actually be fun and competitive? I don’t think I’ve ever written an app review before but I’m very passionate about the ideas behind this app and it’s so incredibly well made! I’m surprised more people don’t know about this app. You just click a button any time you complete one of the eco-friendly activities like using a reusable water bottle instead of plastic, buy local produce, recycle, or volunteer and the app tracks your impact in areas like waste reduction and water saved. You can add photos and comments and join local competitions. Amazed by this app!
Love it sooo much!
by Misdionblue27 on 2018/05/30 22:54
This is the best app I have ever gotten, however, no one really knows about it so I recommend advertising it!
This app rocks!!

Joulebug is tons of fun and great for the planet too.
Absolutely LOVE this app!
by Me72628187 on 2015/05/01 20:45
Great app! Makes staying green fun and interesting. I would suggest an update to allow you to delete a post if you post something twice on accident though! I am super ocd so that bothers me, other than that, this app is perfectly amazing in every way!!!
Amazing 😀❤️

On more than one occasion I have received accidental buzz's from network glitches/hiccups- whatever you want to call it, "general errors." Any way, I would like the option to delete un intended buzzs, like to day I was trying to buzz something and it wasn't working then later in the day I tried again and I ended up with 6 buzzs when I only needed 1

No boys allowed??
by iBook_User on 2014/04/26 11:08
The sleep in treehouse challenge says "no boys allowed". Bit creepy. Also, earning badges is too easy, and what's the point if you earn all of them in one day? Not impressed.

Healthy competition
by magrit06 on 2012/10/03 00:09
I love that this is a social game/app that encourages me to do something good for my wallet instead of going out to restaurants and spending money. Funny how the competition for a few points can help me get over the hump to walk to work or remember to turn down the thermostat when I leave home - helping my gas bill, too!

Top notch!

It's filled with great ideas on how to lower your bill. The social aspect augments the means with a motivation.
This is a really educational an fun app!!!

I think that this app is an AWESOME idea! It teaches energy conservation in a manner that is both really fun and educational! It also allows you to link to your Facebook account and show your friends how much greener you are living. It's a great app and I recommend that everyone should download it!!!!!!

This is way fun. It's like foursquare, except a productive use of time. I love unlocking more badges and the cartoons are very cute. It's just great to be reminded of the many ways you can make a real difference with saving energy. PS- Not sure what the last reviewer is talking about - I downloaded the app, linked to facebook, and am using it just fine.
