Team Name & SDG track
LYRIC; SDG 13
2021 is a make-or-break year for climate action, with the window to prevent the worst impacts of climate change. Sustainability has to be a worldwide effort and our situation can only improve if we ALL pay attention to our habits and daily routines.
What it does
Encourages users to engage in environmentally friendly habits in order to ‘grow’ their plant. The app also has an underlying feature which tracks user’s e-commerce transactions and reminds them if the app thinks they are overconsuming. Ignoring these reminders will cause the plant to wither. The app also provides resources for the user if they wish to look for sustainable stores or activities. Lastly, the app allows users to view a ‘field’ which shows plants that other users have successfully planted.
How we built it
Designed with Ibispaint, User interface design done with Figma
What's next for Dendro
- A chrome extension: Tracks user’s e-commerce purchases made on desktop. An AI can also identify categories of e-commerce shops and offer a more sustainable alternative store with a pop-up if the e-commerce shop the user has chosen is not sustainable
- Streaks: Plant withers if user does not log any activity -> helps to build long term habits
- Gift plants: Instead of real roses, gift someone roses that you planted in the app! A truly meaningful gift
- Sharing: Allows users to share their sustainable activities and encourage others to try them as well
