Tyler: I have people who are close to me that struggle with decluttering and organization skills, so the idea was that everyone could benefit from a non-biased, supportive, life coach-esque chatbot.
Jon: I was drawn to the ideas of reuse and resource recovery, and the importance of those concepts in building a sustainable future.
Federico: I am very passionate about sustainability and therefore was all about developing a system that could help someone hold a more responsible household while improving their own lifestyle.
What it does
