Enviro-balance :deciduous_tree:

This repo is dedicated to the hackathon which was organized by FOSSASIA and UNESCO.

Requirements :wrench:

  • One should have Python 3.6 for running this application
  • pip install Flask==0.12.2 requests==2.18.4 We use flask and requests.


$ git clone && cd enviro-balance
$ python3

Problem Statement

Address the problem of tracking the footprints of the pollutant that go into making an everyday product that we use. Also, to keep track of the resources that have been used in making the commodity.

Proposed Solution

Implement a blockchain to keep track of the footprints as the product passes from one hand to another.

What it does

It keeps track of the pollutant and the resources that go into making everyday products to make people more aware of their usage.

How we built it

We built it using Python(Flask), JavaScript, Jquery and HTML,CSS.

Challenges we ran into

  • Setting up the blockchain and getting the consensus and POW.
  • making a decoupled application where the front end is made up using JavaScript and Jquery and the backend uses Python(Flask)

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Getting the minimum viable project set up before the deadline and also implementing the idea that we had.

What we learned

The blockchain is an amazing tech idea which has the potential to bring about a lot of changes and should be explored more.

What's next for Enviro-Balance

  • To motivate the end users as well as the manufacturers to minimize the resource exploitation by using environmentally friendly material and to create general awareness among people.
  • To provide solutions to the end user on how they can contribute back to the environment in return to maintain the balance between nature and mankind.
  • Have a dedicated decentralized app working based on the idea which we are trying to implement.
