A 19-year-old student in France is creating an online community of people executing one "save" per day for the sake of the planet.

Maxime Leroux, a 19-year-old student in France is creating an online community of people executing one "save" per day for the sake of the planet.

OneSave/Day is the name of the free app that is empowering thousands to commit to just one daily action to be a better environmental steward. 

Prior to the launch of this app, Leroux had never touched app development. He hadn't even considered himself to be an environmentalist. He was a typical college student who grew up with a "normal" life. He began to absorb headlines about the climate crisis which leave many with a growing sense of eco-anxiety. 

Once he began examining the problems, he started to find the solutions. Plastic pollution is the most obvious example. "What can we do about this problem?" he asked. "Where do we consume plastic? Why do we have plastic?" Once he figured out some of the sources of the problem, one place being grocery stores, he began to create simple "saves" that anyone can do such as: take the minimum amount of plastic from the grocery stores.

A byproduct of doing one save per day is a feeling of satisfaction at the end of each day. He receives feedback from individuals saying, "At the end of the day I know that I've done something good on this day for the planet."
