We all know that recycling is great for the planet but how often do we actually remember to recycle? I know I'm pretty terrible for it especially when in the midst of a busy week. So how about a way of being rewarded for doing so? There's a new app on the horizon that promises to do exactly that.
It's called RecyclePix and it allows users to snap and share their photos of their recycling actions at any time and anywhere. Once taken, such photos can then be used to earn Greenopolis Rewards Points which can then be redeemed for real rewards such as discounts at places like Domino's Pizza and exclusive deals with Marriott Hotels. More offers are planned such as discount cinema tickets once the app is launched next week.
It looks like a pretty neat idea, offering a genuine reason to recycle as well as being a fun and social way of saving the planet. There's even a form of community set with users able to vote on photos submitted by others thus gaining extra points.
RecyclePix is set to be released August 4th. It'll be interesting to see how it takes off. I for one will certainly be checking it out.
