N2A Express details which are the best applications on the market to be sustainable


The N2A Express marketing team has carried out a study of which are the top applications on the market to be more sustainable.

As a company involved in the fight for better sustainability for the environment, N2A Express helps its clients to make their events more sustainable. Offering advice and consultancy to carry out events under sustainable criteria in line with the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) defined by the United Nations for the 2030 Agenda .

As a result of the European project of the 2030 Agenda, it is worth noting the words of the former Secretary of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, who said that "there is no planet B". The business world must wake up and join the green movement to preserve the health of the Planet.

And now more than ever, sustainability is literally at our fingertips. There are many ways to contribute to the fight for digital sustainability. Next, we highlight the best applications available in the Spanish market to be sustainable:

  • Too Good to Go: If you don't want food to go to waste, this is your best option. Every year, more than 30% of the food produced in the world ends up in the garbage, according to data from Greenpeace. For this reason, Too Good to Go is an application that has opted for more sustainable food management that could help reverse climate change. The functioning is quite simple. Almost 15,000 establishments of different types participate in the application, such as bakeries, supermarkets, restaurants or hotels, throughout Spain. These upload packages of food that have not been consumed or that are close to their expiration date to the portal at a much lower price than the original The exchange seems pretty good. The consumer can buy at a reduced price and the entrepreneur sells products that would otherwise end up in the trash. In addition, the planet appreciates it and we will contribute to achieving SDG 2 related to zero hunger , as we will help create sustainable food production to alleviate the risks of hunger in the world.
  • Back Market: Giving electronic products a second life is possible thanks to Back Market , a company that reconditions them and puts them up for sale at a much lower price than if we bought them new. Headphones, laptops, consoles, video games, tablets, mobiles, among many others. Practically any device that we have in our head can be found in this application. In addition, it has an additional year warranty after the end of the manufacturer's warranty year. With this, we will contribute to achieving SDG 12 on responsible production and consumption . Because waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) has already become one of the biggest environmental problems. According to Greenpeace, in 2019, the world generated 53.6 metric tons of electronic waste, which would give an average of 7.3 kilograms per person.
  • Gratix: Gifting does not mean giving something without receiving anything in return, it is much more than that. "Giving is thinking of others" and "connecting with other people" as the Gratix campaign points out, but also betting on sustainable consumption, using only what you need. Through this application, we can give away clothes, mobile phones or laptops that we don't use, and perishable food from our fridge if we go on vacation. Some even give away olives.Giving gifts will make us feel better and contribute to changing the world little by little. We will help to achieve responsible production and consumption (SDG 12) and to reduce inequalities (SDG 10). Karma will reward us and, who knows, maybe our wishes will be fulfilled (in the app).
  • Electricity Price Spain: With electricity prices skyrocketing, efficient energy consumption is good both to save energy and to save on the electricity bill at the end of the month. Thanks to this application, you will be able to check the price of the KWh in the regulated market (PVPC) and thus, adjust to the cheapest and most expensive time to "organize your life habits". Thus, we will be able to contribute our grain of sand to the achievement of SDG 7 regarding affordable and non-polluting energy in its goal to achieve an improvement in energy efficiency worldwide.
  • MyRealFood: Eating well also has a direct impact on the environment. The production of ultra-processed foods has a greater environmental impact than natural or fresh foods due to the greater difficulty of their production and distribution, as well as being much less healthy. According to a study carried out in Mexico last year , it was found that hypercaloric diets generate a much higher water footprint than healthy diets, with an extra expenditure of up to 729 liters of water per day. With this application, you will be able to control which foods are good for your health. Through a scan of the product, you can easily know its nutritional quality. Plus, MyRealFood includes thousands of recipes that are healthy and mindful of reducing waste. With this, you will contribute to achieving SDG 3 related to health and well-being, and its goal to reduce premature mortality from non-communicable diseases by one third by 2030.
It is important to remember that aligning with the Sustainable Development Goals is easier than we think, we just have to know how and choose what is closest to us to join the sustainable movement.
