Team #13 - CliMe
Being an environmentally responsible consumer is hard.
People nowadays spend a lot of time searching for reliable products. There is a lot of eco-friendly merchandise out there, but the general audience is not aware of the products and/or don't want to spend a lot of their time to do research.
greenify is a curation platform to remove the hurdle for consumers - it's a green marketplace to greenify our lives.
What it does
greenify does not rely on charities or donation. greenify makes a profit by performing as a retailer and use the profit to greenify the earth.
- curates eco-friendly products and companies
- connects people to environment-friendly products
- encourages people to learn more about the environment by collecting seeds for discount
