The Problem

We aim to reduce the usage of non-sustainable plastics and combat the lack of knowledge about plastics and waste.

Our Plan

We aim to create a web app and mobile app containing plastic-fighting resources, helping people become more waste-conscious in their daily lives. One component will be an educational portion, including a regularly updated blog and weekly/monthly sustainability-related challenges with prizes! Another component will be an action page, including resources for local eco-friendly opportunities (i.e., sustainable programs, small businesses, etc.). This will also include opportunities for community members to receive funding and mentorship for environmentally-focused projects. The final component will be an object-detection-based system using AI to separate types of waste.
