Reducing CO2 emissions through diet moderation



As individuals and a society we feel like we can't do anything to help the environment because we feel overwhelmed. 

1. Not top of mind:

Not on the top of the political agenda 

2. Eco-overload:

With an overwhelming amount of eco-issues and disasters happening people don't know what to do, where to do or, or where to help

3. No personal connection:

As a society we don't feel any personal connection as

eco-issues haven't affected us or our lives drastically yet but they will continue to affect future generations. 


Technology + Personalization


More than 50% express interest in tracking physical activity


People like to to compare, compete, and share their data with others 

Sense of Control:

Wearable technology is associated readiness, efficiency, and accessibility that increases users’ confidence in completing tasks while reducing time and mental effort

Introducing CalO2: 

Calorie counter and tracker that makes eco-data data more digestible and focuses on reducing one's personal carbon footprint through My Climate Impact (MCI).


It's directly integrated into the Health and Activity app on the Apple Watch and iPhone.

How It Works

Step 1: On-Boarding 

10 - 15 minute food diet pre-screen

Step 2: Carbon Footprint Estimate 

It will then show the user their food carbon footprint

Step 3: Goal Setting

 Users will set daily, weekly and monthly goals 

Step 4: End of the Year Review

Show people the impact their diet choices have made and make it shareable to others online and on social

25% of all Co2 emissions come from food

Animal Products: 

58% of Co2 food emissions come from animals

Meat Consumption:

Beef has the largest carbon footprint out of all the food groups

Creating Habits: 

Takes 28 days to start a habit

Personal Health = Planet Health: 

Personalization helps create incentives and stakes

The Takeaway:

Using health and diet strategic insight through online product design and development for an innovative app development extension. 

Target: Eco-Health Conscious

Daily Activity Tracker

Shows users important data: current Co2 emissions, where you stand on your goals, holds you accountable on a daily basis. Most importantly it keeps the issue of climate change front of mind for users. 

End of the Year Review: 

The goal is to create shareable moments. Data is concise and relevant and tells users the overall Co2 impact and saved through diet change. It visually compares their habits from start to end and where users started and gives users quarterly reports.

Future Uses:

Transportation Circle

Tracking moderation in commute towards personal carbon emissions. Encourage the use more eco-friendly forms of transportation: car pooling, walking, biking, public transportation (in larger cities). A way to connect the larger data points together.
