Scan your grocery receipt in the app to log the carbon footprint of your purchase
Love that idea! Seems like a fairly low hurdle to scan a receipt if you're interested in your footprint.
Long term it might be good to think about other ways to track shopping, especially as paper receipts are pretty bad for the environment as well.
(See e.g. here: https://www.wired.co.uk/article/receipt-recycling-uk-thermal-paper-digital-receipt).
This might be a cool integration partner for that, though probably not now (supports about five different shops): https://tryflux.com/
Btw, is this idea open-source to work on? I always wanted to play around with scanning receipts.
Tomorrow could also connect to existing "diet" apps that already follow our nutritions (eg lifesum, myfitnesspal, etc...)
@Charles C: Hey Charles, thanks for your feedback. This is indeed something we are currently looking at. Lifesum doesn't currently have an API. Ideally we'd want to go closer to the source of the emissions, meaning measuring the emissions of groceries or meals you purchase.
@Olivier Baumann: Makes sense, thank you.
