It is a global problem to sometimes be unsure about how things are supposed to be recycled. It is easy to ignore the problem and simply throw stuff in the trash, but it should be just as easy to know exactly how everything should be recycled.
What it does
It scans a product that you do not know how to recycle and tells you exactly how it should be recycled.
How we built it
We built an app. We built a server. We connected them to a database. We connected everything to data provided by the organizers. And then, we saved the world.
Challenges we ran into
It was a challenge to create the grading system that says how environmentally friendly a product is.
Accomplishments that we’re proud of
We are proud of our project as a whole with respect to how it will help save the planet with added recycling. The slick user interface of the app is also worthy of our admiration.
What we learned
We improved our teamwork and got better at communicating our ideas and feelings about each others’ designs and code.
What's next for Flikk Flokk
To reach out to companies for collaboration on gathering data on how to recycle products.
