From Jenine Beekhuyzen
Our app idea revolves around solving environmental issues at a local level. It is planned to offer several ways to limit your contribution to climate change, ocean warming etc. We will do this by adding a variety of ways to conserve energy or use renewable options to make the users' lifestyles eco-friendlier. Simple things such as, scanning garbage to determine whether or not it is recyclable to help reduce the negative impacts waste has to the environment and preserve the rainforest and other places where natural resources such as oxygen, minerals, water, food and vegetation come from. Our app will also consist of guides that educate people on these environmental issues and ways to help solve them, for example; which clothes contribute less to ‘fast fashion’ and what energy companies and retail products are better for the environment. These points are all features we would like to include in our app to do our part to help solve the environmental crises of today.
