The Problem

We aim to help users recycle correctly and make regular recycling a lifelong habit.

Our Plan

We are building a progressive web application to help users recycle correctly and track their progress. Users will be able to take pictures of pieces of waste and the app will use an AI-powered object detection algorithm to categorize the waste and deliver recycling guidelines directly to the user. Users will have weekly challenges and will be able to earn badges and share their progress, which will help keep them engaged.
