This solution, through continuous monitoring of payments, allows to keep family expenses under control, minimizing waste and consequently having a minimal impact on pollution. The main impact is eco-financial, meaning the app identifies the quantity to be purchased based on the user's needs, defined on the initial registration of their profile. The challenge is to educate users to responsible consumption through: empowerment campaigns, social / influencer advertising, bonuses linked to the achievement of specific goals.
