EcoTaxFile Facebook App

Working in conjunction with Appnovation, one of Vancouver's premier Drupal agencies, I created a Facebook app for EcoTaxFile's Carbon Tax Calculator. This Facebook app featured a "like gate" whereby users were only able to use the carbon tax calculator after they had "liked" the page. The carbon tax calculator was an extensive survey of the user's lifestyle choices that gave them an estimate of their yearly carbon tax footprint and also assigned them an EcoStar rating that they could share with their friends and tweet to their followers.

At the end of the survey, based on the carbon footprint and ecoStar rating, users were given suggestions as to how they could be more environmentally friendly based on the answers they had given.
