We wanted to create something that people can enjoy and at the same time engage and contribute to save the environment.
What it does
This is a crowdsource recycling application built to help save the environment by allowing community members to identify areas with litter. We want to reduce air pollution / emissions, promotes communication between people. After recognizing that communities can aid themselves by cleaning up for eachother.
How we built it
We worked as a team of 5, helping one another during times of struggle. We worked on FrontEnd using React Native, a cross-platform development environment and Backend using google-cloud and firebase. We used a lot of GCP products and some of which include: Firebase Authentication, Google Maps, and Google Cloud.
Challenges we ran into
The framework that we based our application on was unable to conform within our design process.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The accomplishments that we are proud of are the NoSQL database that is part of the Firebase database.
What we learned
We learned how to integrate the cross platform React Native framework with backend APIs such that there is a seemless lifecycle from client to server communication.
What's next for GreenUp
GreenUp hopes to expand its community reach by including more comprehensive solutions to pollution including local government and business involvement.
