Inspiration

Our inspiration came from brainstorming things that we were interested in. We started off with iterating the theme in our perspective, then we started to brainstorm some topics after. Once we picked a topic we started to connect them to how it relates to the theme and finally we came up with Carbodo! We had some disagreements and opinions based on this idea but finally we settled into this idea of Fossil Fuels and Climate Change as our idea.

What it does

We have created a website for an organization called Carbodo, which is dedicated to fighting climate change by sharing the data that we gathered concerning carbon emissions around the world. This website brings awareness to the members and encourages donators to contribute to Carbado’s funds. The funding will then be given away to climate change initiatives.

How we built it

We built it using Repl.it, we used HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Bootstrap. We also used the platform Figma to create a design first before coding everything since it would be a lot easier to know what to code than just starting it.

Challenges we ran into

We ran into many challenges, when we were coding we couldn’t figure out how to make the map work so we just used the maps that were already there on the web, but we want to create a map to our liking in the future. We want to add more to OUR SOLUTIONS page in the future too. There were a lot of components that we wished we said but weren’t able to due to time constraints.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

The one thing we are very proud of is completing this project, even though it isn’t so great, there is a lot we learned from this experience of working together. We only had three members on our team but we still managed to finish everything on time. We are grateful for having each other’s backs and working on this project together. And never giving up!

What we learned

We learned so much about the environment and how are we supposed to save it. There are so many things that are causing Climate Change and Fossil Fuels are one of them, we learned about the impacts of fossil fuels on the climate and how we can help reduce it. We also learned a great deal of good web design in the process too. At first, we weren’t sure how we should even start, but now we have a finished product that working and looks fantastic! We are proud of what we have.

What's next for Carbodo

One improvement we would make to our website is adding in real-time information that our members would contribute about climate change, facilitating more conversation and discussion. We want to add more to our website and do more things together as an organization. We also want to get started with helping out the people with small things based on the money that we have right now. Overall, we aspire to make Carbodo an Organization and help a lot of people around the world to find their voice and eliminate the pollution and harm we are causing to our planet Earth!
