We used to simply plant a tree on Earth Day, but in the era of battery-zapping smartphones, increasing carbon emissions and power-hungry home electronics, it seems all the more poignant that we turn to Android apps in search of ways to cherish Mother Earth. Whether you’re looking for a way to cut down on your own energy consumption or you’d like to live more sustainably, there’s an Android app to help you honor Earth Day this year and the next.
With an array of indie movies on demand, SnagFilms is considered an entertainment app. But an informative film can also be educational, helping to spread the message of eco friendliness in a most inspiring way. With a release day of April 22, the documentary Confessions of an Eco-Terrorist is set to debut on Earth Day, distributed through SnagFilms. It’s an “action-packed” voyage with Captain Paul Watson and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society of Animal Planet’s Whale Wars, covering 30 years of insider footage from eco-campaigns around the world. Often met with conflict, these renegades have taken up their cause wholeheartedly and have lived to tell the tale.
