Makes me think of donation systems like:

Is it the same mechanism?

Thank You for tje question and links.
Fortunately, The Green Pocket is tottaly different.
Example - i go to the ATM to withdraw money, at the end i get to choose if i want to get the receipt or not. Getting the receipt means that indirectly i harm the forest, not getting it - i help the forest.
What i never get is my percentage of impact over the forest, for YES or No.

This is what the green pocket represents to me. A series of tools which help the mobile money user, discover where his impact over the nature stands, by using them daily.
The donation, comes just as an extra incentive for the user.

Hello Tyby !

Ok, I understand now that you highlight the main feature.
It is, at the same time, a digital receipt in order to pollute less, and a micro-fundraising app for preservation of species and forests !

A lot of apps exists around expenses management, but I can't find one to helps you understand your impact on nature. It is very interesting !

A company called Software Advice (whom we have heard from on this blog before regarding paperless blueprints), offers a few stunning facts:

9,600,000 millions trees are cut down each year just to produce paper receipts.

249,600,000 gallons of oil are used to produce paper receipts.

The amount of CO2 emitted by producing one ton of receipt paper is equivalent to the amount of exhaust a car emits while driving for an entire year. That’s 640,000 cars driving 24/7 for an entire year.
1,220,800,000 gallons of water are used during the production process of receipt paper.

Approximately 2,278 lbs of trash is produced while producing a single ton of receipt paper. This means 1,457,920,000 lbs of trash are being fed into our landfill. This produces enough CO2 emissions to significantly damage the earth’s ozone layer, leading to global warming.
