Oroeco is recently launched web app that combines with Mint.com to help you figure out what kind of carbon footprint you’re leaving behind. If you login in with Facebook, the app also gives you a way to compete with your friends and family for the title of “smallest carbon footprint.” Keep reading to find out why the average person who says they care about climate change can often have a substantially worse than average footprint.

Oroeco uses your spending information from Mint, whether that’s food, housing, entertainment, or travel, to figure out the carbon value of each transaction. The app then tabulates an overall carbon value for your activities, and
compares it to other people in your social circle. Instead of just making you feel guilty, it also offers suggestions on how you can reduce your overall environmental impact.
