Changers, a company whose goal is to help people reduce their energy use, has launched a new mobile app that measures sustainable behavior and rewards it with Recoins, the world's first green currency based on CO2 savings. CO2 fit calculates the net CO2 effect of cycling, taking a bus or train, or driving a car, and rewards users with a Recoin unit for every kilogram of CO2 they save.

Done for the Montreal Economic Institute (MEI), the not-for-profit research and educational organization says this means Canadians “are not willing to foot the bill” to fight climate change.
