Nowadays, pollution keeps increasing due to social, political, economic, cultural, and environmental factors. Environmental awareness is close to zero because people prioritize personal activities. In that sense, the objective of this investigation is to raise environmental awareness in the population regarding the impact of pollution and support this through a mobile application (APP) that helps reduce pollution. The methodology used was the cascade, and through its phases, it was developed the prototype design of the mobile APP. The results obtained from this hybrid research were through a survey using ATLAS.ti 22; it concluded that environmental awareness begins at home and is taught by the parents, also it should be promoted from elementary school to high school and even in college. Moreover, in a survey, the users stated by 89% that the use of this mobile APP can help reduce the environmental impact. Also, in the validation through expert judgment, all the attributes were accepted with an average of 81%, that of functionality was the lowest, and the highest was that of consistency and integration with 83%. Finally, environmental education should be a priority policy in any country, as this will benefit its population.
