If this year of the plague has helped you transcend the menial day to day of life pre-COVID and reconsider how you want your life to impact the world, you’re not alone. Some people might try to tell you that there’s no such thing as ethical consumption under capitalism. Well, they might be right. Still, we get to acknowledge that every choice we make has a ripple effect, whether or not we ever know when that tiny ripple becomes a wave or where that wave crashes. We get to try, and try again.
Eventually, the threat of COVID-19 will neutralize. The only way to return to a new normal is to transform your choice to live more sustainably into a handful of small habits that become an entire lifestyle. Making a positive impact is not a one time thing. It’s waking up every day and repeatedly choosing to do something a little different than the day before in order to make a bigger difference, especially if you can’t see those differences for yourself. What if there was some way you could measure every single positive change you make?
The PerSus app was created with the intention of making it easy and effortless for each individual to measure what they call your sustainability score. You get to answer a series of questions about your life that will evaluate how your current set of choices are impacting the world.
Even better, PerSus will educate and motivate you to take daily challenges to improve your score. You’ll be virtually celebrated when your score improves and informed on which areas need more attention. The more you use the app, the better it will understand your interests and your flavor of activism. As time goes on, it’ll feel like your daily challenges are custom-made for you.
Since a little bit of positive reinforcement never hurt anyone, every time your sustainability score hits a milestone, the PerSus App will reward you with free merch, discounts, raffle entrances and more.You win, the planet wins—everyone wins! It’s a great idea, right?
The app encourages you to share the glory of making a difference with friends and family and inspire them to join the environmental justice movement, but make it fun.
