Reduce your impact on the environment and do your part for the planet? It's now possible in 3 steps via your smartphone. Here are our 6 favorite applications that help you make small gestures for the planet in your daily life.

FoodForAll: The app that addresses food waste

When products reach their sell-by date in supermarkets, they often end up being thrown away for lack of buyers. However, these foods are still perfectly edible. Food waste is a challenge to feed the population, but also to preserve our planet.

FoodForAll allows you to shop among hundreds of short-dated products at very low prices. It's an opportunity to save your products from the garbage and to do good to your wallet. In addition, the app offers video recipes based on the selected products.

You can find everything you need, from head to toe: clothes of course, but also shoes, accessories, designer pieces or cosmetics.

In short, Vinted is the perfect app for anyone who wants to get into the sustainable fashion loop.
