Inspiration

"Awareness without action is worthless." This inspired us to make the younger generation visualize that each and every choice we make leaves a significant impact on the Earth. With a little more awareness and action, we aim to bring that awareness to the younger generation through an intuitive and unique way.

What it does

Greenify is a mobile app that aims to provide the younger generation and students an innovative way to view how their choices are impacting the environment. The app essentially helps users visualize their carbon footprint in accordance with their everyday choices by accumulating points utilizing various techniques.

How we built it

The frontend and design for the app was made with Figma. We used Expo to help us with the back end and make the react native app. Google Clouds Firebase to store all of our users. Javascript, as the baseline programming language, firestore to host our database, and Postman for API testing.

Challenges we ran into

One of the biggest challenges we ran into was setting up and using the react native app. Only one of our members knew how to use react native, so we all had to learn it so we could help make the app.

Another challenge was converting the Figma that we had created for our front end into HTML/CSS, since it was the first time working with Figma for most of us .

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud of creating the idea that we had originally envisioned. We came into this hackathon with an open mind and were able to put our learning to the test and create something impactful for the community.

What we learned

We all learned how to set up a reactive native app using Expo and how to read/write to Firebase as it was a first for us.

What's next for Greenify

Greenify would like to include more integrations with common IoT devices, we are also looking to expand into more apps that would be accessible to everyone. Along with that, we would also like to implement VR/AR. So we can present the points in a more appealing way. For example the user would be able to see their forest grow every time they make better choices for the environment.
