RecyclePix Photosharing App Makes Recycling On-The-Go Fun, Rewarding

New RecyclePix app from Greenopolis makes it easy to share photos of your good deeds, and challenge friends to get into recycling.  Oh yea, and it’s a lot of fun, too.

Most of us recycle because we feel it’s the right thing to do, right? But let’s face it, it’s still a boring household duty.  So, what if recycling could be fun, challenging and rewarding?

Well, now it is… with RecyclePix, a new kind of photosharing app from Greenopolis.

The app lets you take a picture of whatever you might be recycling ––from aluminum cans to old shoes––with your  iOS or Android device.  You then upload your pic to the RecyclePix site where you can share it with Facebook and Twitter friends. The RecyclePix app makes it easy to challenge your pals to recycle more, and brag a little about your own higher state of (green) consciousness.

When you upload a pic to RecyclePix, you instantly get points for your effort, points that can be redeemed for great rewards such as discounts and coupons for entertainment, dining, travel, and more at retailers across the nation.  Even more, all RecyclePix points can be combined with points earned through other Greenopolis social recycling endeavors, like the PepsiCo Dream Machine, Greenopolis Recycling Kiosks and Greenopolis.com.

RecyclePix takes recycling to a whole new level by making it a social challenge that can reap real-world benefits.  Look, you’re gonna do the right thing anyway, so you might as well have fun while you do it, right?  And if you can also get a little somthin’-somthin’ for your effort, so much the better.

About Sebrina Zerkus Smith

Professional writer, foodie. Lupus survivor. Loves pugs, wine, days at the beach and good movies. Takes recycling seriously, but not much else. Sebrina Zerkus Smith is a Southern Gal that has been scratching the writer’s itch for nearly 30 years. Her career began in Washington, D.C., in 1987, fresh out of collage and full of ideals. While plying her trade by day on congressional reps and senators, at night she burned the candle writing features for local newspapers and national magazines. She quickly realized that her southern upbringing gave her a unique and humorous voice that resonated with her readers. Eventually, she moved to Los Angeles where she pursued her dream of becoming a novelist and screenwriter. She paid her bills by working as a freelance writer for major marketing projects from studios such as CBS, NBC and Disney. Realizing that the future of writing lay with the internet, she was bitten by the blogging bug back in the 90’s, back before it was even called “blogging.” Then it was still just writing and trying to make a living. Through those early blogging years, Sebrina found passion and purpose. Over the past 10 years she has written articles for clients such as LightCues.com, MatterMore.com, Greenopolis, MacAddict, Yahoo, CNN and more. Today, Sebrina writes about a variety of topics including the Southern Experience, sustainability, clean water, food, gardening, sleep and her obsession with pugs. She is a regular paid contributor to WildOats.com as well as other entities. She now lives in Houston with her husband Jeff and their pug Newton. She hopes one day to complete her opus, Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed.
