Our inspiration came from always having a sustainable mindset, and at a hackathon, where there is an abundance of electronics, we decided to help passionate tech enthusiasts like us become a true environmental warrior.
What it does
Our app connects customers with E-Waste recycling plants based on the E-Waste they have, and it offers them incentive for choosing to recycle.
How we built it
We used HTML/CSS for the front end, and Python (Flask) for the backend. We implemented Google Cloud Platform to help us map the locations for these plants.
Challenges we ran into
The lack of sleep and the conflicting schedules made it hard for all of us to work together, and at the same time.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Meeting new people and creating a project that we feel has a true mission in this world. Sustainability is important, especially in the massive waste caused by these electronics.
What we learned
How to be accommodating and how to incorporate a full web app that has true potential.
What's next for E-Destination
Introducing a mobile side and expanding our network to more plants. Adding opportunities for companies to add their info easily.
