We wanted a easy and convenient way for people to track their impact on carbon emissions.
What it does
It calculates your initial carbon footprint in "Carbon Points" and gives you the options to track and reduce these points to reduce your carbon footprint.
How we built it
We used Android Studio for most of it. We used Firebase for the login and to store user carbon data. The designs were made in Photoshop.
Challenges we ran into
Trying to match UI designs in Photoshop to match the front end framework in Android Studio. We also had challenges implementing Firebase into a login system and retaining that data for storing the carbon footprint user data.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Our app looks good, and functions properly.
What we learned
We learned more about the impact we have on the environment.
What's next for CarbonZero
We want to include more U.S states and other geographical areas for a wider range and accuracy of carbon footprint tracking.
