Earth Day Network and Facebook have announced in a collaborative effort, they have created an app to inspire people around the world to take actions to reduce their impact on the environment. Called Billion Acts of Green, the app has been released online on the world’s most popular social network, Facebook.
The app allows users to write a pledge about what they will do to help save the environment. From pledging to save energy (what are they doing on Facebook then?), use less water, use alternative transportation, and more; the Billion Acts of Green app will then announce it on the user’s wall creating an awareness about Earth Day as well as giving other people the chance to join in the pledging as well.
In is uncertain how effective these pledges will prove to be in helping the environment since there’s no penalty for not carrying out a pledge, but it will definitely create awareness about Earth Day which might even spur some people to look it up. The pledges can also give ideas to people who want to help the environment but have no idea what to do. Head over to the official Billion Acts of Green app Facebook page to get started with your pledges. In the meantime, it wouldn’t hurt to Like Ubergizmo while you’re logged on.
