What is Ecobot?
Ecobot is a Messenger chatbot that measures your personal ecological impact. Through an initial survey, it calculates your CO2 emissions based on formulas, measurements, and statistics from the EPA. It then gamifies the process of improvement by compiling standings amongst friends that have also messaged the chatbot - standings of people having the least CO2 emissions. Finally, it'll send weekly reminders on actionable improvements, like weekly miles traveled with your car.
