According to Green Peace if we carry on with chemically intensive agriculture models, it is quite possible that we may affect our pollinating insects to such a degree that the planet reaches a global "pollination crisis".
Now that would "bee" a very very bad thing as without pollination the human race would starve and that's enough to ruin anyone's day!
Another eco-friendly startup that I admire is PlantSnapp. Okay, like SumOfUs, it's not directly related to the IOT but that doesn't stop me from liking it. The app enables users to interact with the natural world around them. PlanetSnapp uses image recognition to identify almost every species of plant simply by matching photos snapped using a smartphone, hence the name. This technology is routinely used by fashionistas who use an app called SnappFashion for product discovery and price comparison of clothing and accessories. The founder of PlanetSnapp openly acknowledges that SnappFashion is what inspired him to start PlanetSnapp in the first place, so proof that fashion can really save the world!
