There is clear evidence that greenhouse gases (GHG) have had damaging effects on the Earth, such as global warming. Man can contribute in a way that attempts to minimize the impacts of climate change. In recent years, environmental problems have become increasingly evident, leading to an increase in people's awareness of these problems. As a result, the search for ways to mitigate the impacts that contribute to Climate Change has become ever larger. Activities of our day-to-day are responsible for the occasional emissions of these gases. Performing daily activities, for example, is able to release into the atmosphere a few tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), even without being an industrial process. That is why it is fundamental that society as a whole take actions that contribute to the reduction of GHG emissions, the main factor that intensifies global warming. Our application calculates the amount of CO2 emitted by people and suggests how many tree seedlings should be planted to generate the compensation. In a way users can be encouraged to use the application and contribute to the environment by being socially responsible. We use NASA maps and weather data to show which is the best tree seedling and which is the best planting site based on the person's location (GPS).
