We were inspired by the problem that humans, globally, generate about 1.3 billion tons of trash per year, which is far more than we can properly process or recycle. For that reason, we decided that we should contribute to reducing the amount of waste humans produce by targeting one of the three R's: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. With the rise of sustainability of our times, we aim to teach our future generations to recycle the waste and how should protect endangered species
What it does
The website has the user to buy the eco-friendly products. And user can exchange their plastic products to buy eco-friendly products. The plastic product will be sent out to the recycling factories. Eco-friendly products promote green living that help to conserve energy and also prevent air, water and noise pollution. They prove to be boon for the environment and also prevent human health from deterioration
Recycling reduces the need for extracting, refining and processing raw materials all of which create air and water pollution.
We have AR feature where you will be able to find and learn about endangered animals. And you can able experience the AR.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We did not have enough time to build all the features. As we belong to different time zone it been a little difficult to work on and also some of our teammates were facing severe internet issues so it was a little hard to meet up and work.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud that we made a working website within the short amount of time. And creating an educational and shopping source for people to grow into sustainable humans on this earth!
What we learned
What's next for Ecotopia
Next we planned to complete the site and improve it, we also have to improve the camera, hope to finish the project after the hackathon
