Tip Toe is a learning tool that helps reduce climate anxiety by informing people that sustainability is accessible and providing the resources for them to learn how to live sustainably. Climate anxiety has become a worldwide issue for people aged 16-25 in response to the climate crisis. Tip Toe provides an in-app point system that allows users to track and reduce their ecological footprint as they practice building habits. Activities can be completed quickly for users that want to make simple changes. Readings allow users to learn about green practices without needing to perform a task. Lessons are long term tasks that teach in depth skills for users to invest in personal growth and lasting environmental reduction. Gamification keeps users engaged through community, goals, reminders, and lessons that focuses on encouragement rather than competition to create a holistic stress free learning experience.
