Druuummm roll please!! It’s here! The very first version of Zero Waste App!
Find it in the app store, install it, open it and check it out:
Keep in mind, this is a baby. It was just born. It’s completely new. But soon it’s going to evolve into your new friend who knows all the great Zero Waste Friendly places in different cities in the world. And that friend learns about more and more places all the time.
So, say Hi to the newborn Zero Waste App!
What’s in it?
What you see when you open the app depends on where in the world you are. I’m in the Netherlands, so I see Europe, Africa, some of Western Asia. It looks like this for me:
If you’re somewhere on the American Continent, it might look like this for you:
and if you’re in Asia, you might see this:
Let’s check out Europe first, because there are all those red markers on the map. They point to those 12 cities that are currently available in the app:
- San Sebastian
You can tap on the markers and will see a little pop-up saying ‘Click here to show details.’ Tap on the pop-up and you’ll see the city preview, just like this:
You’ll see a short description about how zero waste friendly the city is and a list showing how many locations per category are included. Scroll down and you’ll see the full list:
And I’m sure you saw the big red button saying ‘Buy it now for $ 0.99’. This is how you can get all the location information that is mentioned in the list above. And that’s not all actually. When ever there is a new location becoming available for a city you already bought, it will be downloaded on your phone automatically and it won’t cost a penny. All locations coming in the future are free.
Travel to Guatemala for a moment!
Now let’s move over to the American Continent and check out the details for a city. Can you find Antigua? It’s in Guatemala, Central America. It has this green marker pointing to it. Tap on that! This one says ‘It’s free!’.
Now if you tap on that you can see details about what locations this city contains. You should actually try it and so I’m not posting a screenshot of it here.
Antigua currently includes the following:
- 4 Bulk stores
- 3 Cafes and Restaurants
- 2 Farmers’ markets
- 1 Activity
Tap on the green button that says ‘GET IT NOW FOR FREE!’. You will have to enter your apple id password again but it won’t cost a penny. It will download the locations and you can then zoom in and tap on each one of the location markers. Tap on the little pop-up to go to the location screen.
I won’t tell you more at this point, I think you should try it out for yourself!
