** APP BY LEO GRAND ** As you may notice it says this app is "by Patrick McConlogue", this is in error. While I have been working with Leo, he has written every line of code for this app. I have been working with Apple Support to change this but for legal reasons it currently has to be my name until we get some paperwork processed. **
Trees for Cars is a mobile carpooling app that connects drivers and riders. Every car on the road contributes to pollution by emitting CO2. By using Trees for Cars to find rides in your area, you’ll be helping the environment because more carpooling means fewer cars on the road.
Download the app, sign in, and tell us whether you want to offer rides or take a ride. We’ll connect you with the riders or drivers closest to your complete route.
Ride sharing is caring!

This is why I am proud!
I have not had the chance to use the app as I saw your story when it first broke. I applaud the Mr. McConlogue for what he done as we need more of that everyday. Equally as important I applaud Mr. Grand for accepting such a gracious opportunity and trying to help others even though the money could have fed and cloth you yet the savings to our world will help feed millions as you "pay it forward". I am not sure I can use the app were I am currently but, I will make sure when I come back to the US I try to use it as soon as arrive at the airport. It's people like you two gentlemen that make me proud to represent our government and it's people but, it make me ecstatic to know that despite what's on the news we still keep the spirit of American people on the cusp of advancement for all man kind! Have a great day and, I wish you all the best.
Great app, but I am more impressed by Leo's diligence on this. I am also impressed by Patrick, for his wanting to help out his community. Only a true altruistic man would do this. This is a great way to start a movement in both reducing poverty and increasing environmental awareness all while receiving a ton of press. Tell your friends and anyone you know about this, the more who use it, the more opportunities we will have to carpool, and more people who will be influenced by Patrick's daring move. Thank you all for your hard work and dedication to such a difficult task.
Support two great causes in one
Note: Sign up working flawlessly at time of review.
Great application idea. I hope this is able to promote car pooling as a means of reducing the environmental burden of cars.
Clean implementation, cross-platform support to target a wide audience. This may be one of the better products in this niche.
As a fellow software engineer I just want to say that I am very impressed with the work you put into this. On a personal level I can't think of a better way to spend $0.99. Good luck to you and keep it up. I hope to see more from you in the future.
