Inspiration

Global Warming is awful! While several greenhouse gases are responsible for it, CO2 is a major contributor. We wanted to come up with a solution that helps individuals become more aware of how their dietary habits add to it. We also wanted to provide them better alternatives and a way to make up for the damage. Carbon Footprint

What it does

  • Recommends ecofriendly alternatives to items in your cart, all you have to do is take a picture!
  • Shows ecofriendly restaurants in your area
  • Earn points by buying ecofriendly products and checking in at ecofriendly restaurants
  • Shows how many trees you need to plant to offset your carbon footprint
  • Donate to have a tree planted in your name
  • Shows trees planted in your name
  • Leaderboad to encourage individuals

How we built it

  • Eaternity API
  • Zomato API
  • React Native
  • AWS
  • Generated a score for each restaurant based on items on their menu
  • Calculated trees needed to offset carbon emissions

Challenges we ran into

Wanted to have an AR label for trees planted but the app crashed :(

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

It works

What we learned

A lot about carbon emissions

What's next for Carbocount

  • AR tagged trees
  • Personal carbon footprint based on household items, transport, habits
  • Payment integration
