What is Stridy?

We are a non-profit organisation that enables individuals and communities to record and track their unlittering progress through the Stridy App. By visualising the positive impact one has made on the environment, we hope to inspire individuals across the world to make a difference by picking up litter. Our vision is to build a groundswell of like-minded people engaged with the issue of waste management all across the world, and to foster a sense of community amongst our global Striders.

Our business model

We have no business model. Stridy is funded by private donations, and proceeds from our Stridy shop, which provides tools our Striders might find useful. We also do not sell our user data, nor are we planning to monetize our app in any form (advertisements, etc). 


We do welcome financial contributions to help keep our day-to-day running. If you’d like to support us and our cause, please drop us an email at hello@stridy.com.

Maintaining Integrity of Data

We trust you, as our Striders, to ensure the data you input onto the Stridy App is to the best of your knowledge. We acknowledge that complete accuracy is not possible, but we sincerely hope that the integrity of the data is retained.

About the Stridy App

Where can I download the Stridy App?

The Stridy App is a global application that can be used around the world. It  is available on both iOS App store and Google Play Store.

How does the Stridy app work?

The Stridy app helps you track your unlittering impact. You’ll be able to visualise where you’ve Strided, and the litter you’ve collected at specific points along your journey. Please note that Location Access must be provided to the Stridy App for you to be able to track the location of your pick ups. For more information about how your location data is used, please refer to our Privacy Policy.  Did we mention? You also earn Stridy points as you move! These Stridy points can be redeemed to support environmental conservation efforts around the world.

I haven’t used the app before. Is it difficult to start a Stride?

Welcome aboard! Rest assured that we have made the Stridy app as easy to use as possible.  We’ve even included an in-app tutorial, which can be accessed at the top right corner of the home screen, marked by a “?”. When you click on the “?”, the tutorial will pop right up - simply swipe and follow the instructions!

How do I earn Stridy points and what can I do with them?

Stridy points are awarded based on the pickups made during a journey. To redeem Stridy points, head over to the “Me” page. These points can be redeemed for Stridy Store vouchers, or to support conservation efforts around the world. Your available points for redemptions are labelled as “Redeemable Points” via in-app.

What should I do if I'm facing a technical issue or glitch?
