City : Munich
Country : Germany
Cat : For our readers who may not be familiar with the eco-friendly assistant app Eevie; tell us a bit about yourself and “Eevie”.
Tono : I’m from an hour outside of Munich in Germany, right beside the mountains.The team consists of Tono Willms, Lenni Paar, Raphi Ferretti and Ned Horneffer based in Munich, Vienna and New York.
In EEVIE („E“ for Ecological and „EVIE“ meaning life) we envision an assistant that organizes eco-responsibility into our daily lives without compromising our convenience, striving at making the eco-responsible lifestyle the better alternative.
We our selves do not live a truly eco-responsible lifestyle as of yet, but we are getting better day by day and hope that EEVIE will help us (and maybe many more people in this world) make this transition easier than ever before.
Our goal is to identify an approach that actually works and that our users really love. We want nothing more to enable anyone to live sustainable and to enjoy every single bit of that life. This way the sustainable alternative becomes the more desirable one, and super desirable it must be for us to get to the masses 😛
All of this will only work if all of our testers engage themselves with thoughts, ideas and feedback. We need and want to hear form everyone what they like or dislike, or what they would like eevie to be. This way together we can build a motor to help the rest of us change our ways.
Cat : Luckily I’m an android girl so I received a notification from eevie in my local supermarket this evening about peak season produce. I also received a reminder when I was out for dinner about disposable cups.
Tono : After achieving what I stated above, we plan to go to market and start building out partnerships. Eevie is meant to be a platform for sustainable life. We imagine Eevie as a one-stop-shop or aggregator for anything you may desire in your journey of becoming a sustainable person.
This means we have to focus ourselves to be the best at helping our users form eco-friendly habits and will therefore have to provide them with any solution they may need in the process. There are so many amazing likeminded entrepreneurs out there (like yourself :)) solving the hundreds’ of problems we are facing in becoming a sustainable society, partnerships will be key to our all success.
Once our platform is built and partnerships are made the focus will be to improve our service so that literally anyone can find use in Eevie, thus working step for step towards our vision of enabling everyone to live eco-friendly lives.
