Sustainable communities are designed to be economically, socially, and environmentally connected while allowing for improvement and adaptation. Our app “Earthling” aims to connect people with sustainable initiatives, contribute new ideas, and organize opportunities. The application allows users to identify and report areas around London that promote sustainability.
Key focus areas:
- Biking or hiking
Owned by locals, using local ingredients
Reduction of plastics
- Zero-waste shop, (eg. Bulk Barn bring-your-own jar)
Community gardens, community centres
Eg. Envirowestern, ReHarvest, Urban Roots London, Zero Waste Forest City
