Our RESEARCH: Eco-Footprint Tracker— a mobile phone app, designed to help people keep track of their food choices and explicitly show the environmental impact of those choices by relating food purchases to carbon emissions. We believe if people knew how their food choices make a difference to the environment, they would choose more wisely. As of May 6th, 2012, Cost of Chicken CrowdMap had 393 Reports from 10 Countries on 4 Continents. There were 1258 Visitors from 39 Countries. Based on this data, we believe that people around the world want to know about the true costs of food. If we give them tools to take control of their food choices, they will make environmentally positive behavioral Academic RESEARCH: changes.
