How does it work?

Living your best life while also taking care of the planet can be complicated.

Things like driving up a canyon to watch a beautiful sunset while enjoying a tasty meal come with so many unintended consequences, consequences like air pollution and waste.

Econus makes consumption sustainable by empowering you to offset the unintended consequences of the things you buy.

Buy a tank of gas for your drive up the canyon -> donate your spare change from that purchase to an organization researching electric vehicles to make them more affordable for the average consumer, or use it to buy carbon offsets.

Send your spare change from that tasty meal to an organization developing revolutionary new packaging or meatless alternatives.
