INBLOOM: THE ECO APP AVAILABLE NOW IN ITUNES
CREATED BY ANDY ROSS OF OK GO AND
EYTAN OREN OF EYTAN AND THE EMBASSY
inBloom is a location-based app designed for the sustainable food and environmental movements. At its core, it simply makes it easier to buy what you believe in. The first version is built for New York City’s five boroughs as well as members of Musician’s Energy Conservation Alliance (MECA), with additional cities to be added throughout 2012. inBloom: The Eco App, which is compatible with the iPhone, is now available for free download in the iTunes App Store.
The app can be easily customized for your specific dietary and eco preferences, and will show you the nearest businesses that are Organic, Locavore, Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-Free, Paleo friendly, Raw, and environmentally friendly. The app has hundreds of listings of restaurants, farmers markets, grocery stores, CSAs, green hotels, biodiesel and electric charging stations, green supply stores, clothing stores, and retail businesses powered by renewable energy. The information for each listing is extremely detailed, well-researched, and designed to help even the most discerning consumers.
inBloom is built by two musicians – Andy Ross of OK Go and Eytan Oren of Eytan and The Embassy – who first started the project as a way of making it easier for bands to tour more sustainably.
