GreenPick

Sustainable and Ethical Shopping Made Easy 💚📲

Project Overview

Would you also love to know which companies and organizations act local and produce in a sustainable and meaningful way? The challenge: The label jungle is dense. The flood of information on search engines is overwhelming. And outside of supermarkets, it costs conscious consumers a lot of time to find alternatives for all needs of life 🏘️🚲🏕️ - We want to change that together with GreenPick and your support! 🤸

Funding goals

  1. Stage 1:

    8.800 CHF

    84% funded

    With this sum we can cover the development costs for the GreenPick prototype. Our further expenses include e.g. legal clarifications regarding trademark protection and the rent of the project rooms.

  2. Stage 2:

    15.400 CHF

    0% funded

    This amount will enable us to integrate the independent Swiss map service of routeRANK, an award-winning spin-off from EPFL. On the go to a sustainable shop, you will thus not only be shown the fastest and cheapest, but also the most climate-friendly route including its CO2-balance.

  3. Stage 3:

    23.600 CHF

    0% funded

    With this sum, GreenPick becomes fully functional: You can find and recommend sustainable and meaningful Swiss SMEs and organizations on GreenPick. If desired, location based and easily adjusted to your needs. The commitment of the suppliers, all their contact points or the most climate-friendly way to a store will be presented to you in clearly arranged profiles. Included in the total is the setting of this project on Crowdify (> we would love to support this great platform 😊).

  4. Finish Stage:

    33.200 CHF

    0% funded

    With this funding stage we can further develop GreenPick according to the votes of the Community. - For example, GreenPick could become a planning assistant. Let's say you want to make a day trip to Biel, have a delicious breakfast, buy some things and discover the artful corners of the city... In just a few clicks, GreenPick would make suggestions for shops and routes that could cover your exciting day program. Tailored to your needs (e.g. vegan, barrier-free or eco-mobile).

We are independent creators, who develop their own desired solution for a healthy and sustainable everyday life.

Be it for household, garden, office equipment or leisure activities with children – we asked ourselves: does it have to cost so much time and effort to find sustainable offers for one's needs? Do we really need to research in advance before leaving home?

We are independent doers who develop a desirable solution for a healthy and sustainable everyday life.

Be it for household, garden, office equipment or leisure activities with children - we asked ourselves: Does it have to cost so much time and effort to find sustainable offers for your needs? Do you have to research everything in advance, or could you not be inspired from time to time while on the road?

With our web app GreenPick we want to solve these challenges: Healthy, regional and conscious shopping as well as climate-friendly and meaningful living is simply possible.

There are already so many exciting Swiss producers, small businesses, associations and initiatives with sustainable and meaningful offers - the better their products are found, the more their offers are in demand, the greater the positive influence we can have together on our regional economy, society and nature.
GreenPick becomes your sustainability compass. As a web app, GreenPick aims to make sustainable Swiss companies and organizations visible – according to your personal criteria and from over 50 sectors, such as food, clothing, health, mobility, culture, housing, travel, education, construction or services.

On the homepage «www.GreenPick.app», which is optimized for the use on-the-go, you will be able to find sustainable offers in three ways: Via keyword entry, a location-based search or by browsing through the categories. You will also have the freedom to filter the offers according to our 20 sustainability criteria. The businesses and organizations with the matching offer will be displayed as a list or map and presented in clearly arranged profiles.
Whether consistently sustainable or increasingly conscious, GreenPick wants to help people live a more regional, climate-friendly and healthier lifestyle. For example, we would also like to provide a sustainability compass to those people who only occasionally make sustainable decisions because they do not find the time in their everyday lives to research alternatives or are not yet aware of them. The application remains free of charge and free of advertising for users.


GreenPick is aimed exclusively at small and medium-sized Swiss enterprises (SME), associations or foundations that are involved in at least three areas of sustainability (e.g. regional, organic and barrier-free), and who want to make their commitment visible on a credible platform. Businesses and organizations that meet these values are accepted free of charge. If they would like more visibility and recommendations, they can support our work as a social employer with 1.– or 2.– Swiss franks per day.
Follow us on Facebook (GreenPick Switzerland), Instagram (greenpick.app), vote on our future project ideas or recommend your favorite vegan coffee, the organic grocery store around the corner, your valued naturopathy practice or a new educational project. We appreciate and check every recommendation that goes to us via «www.GreenPick.app/Empfehlen» – let's make change happen together 🌱
A survey with students of the FHNW as well as 1:1 conversations with private individuals and change makers have motivated us to develop GreenPick.

So far, we have invested our savings in the development of the beta solution. In order to realize GreenPick according to the stages, we need your financial support.

For the development of our network we also appreciate every recommendation of our project and we are grateful for any hint about sustainable offers 💚
