A Real Tree
When you buy this app, a real tree is planted in one of 12 countries fighting deforestation, including Brazil, Zambia, Haiti and others around the globe. The app developers are in partnership with the United Nation Environment Programme (UNEP).

Every time you plant a virtual tree on your phone, a real one is planted. The effort is a partnership of iPhactory, EcoLife and The Conservation Fund. Plant your tree, watch it grow and flourish, and know that there are real trees out there doing the same thing every time you plant a new one on your phone.

Specific to the San Francisco, California area - but we're hoping the idea will spread. With the help of app developers, the city has created a tool that tells residents what materials can be recycled, what recycling resources are available, and the easiest ways to dispose of various materials.
