Inspiration

Local users of their communities can contribute their efforts and "pitch in” to reduce scattered litter. Users are helping to clean up the community one piece of litter at a time.

What it does

By incentivising people of every community to pitch in and pick up litter, we hope to preserve our environment for future generations to come.

4 steps:

  1. Download our app, and turn on your location services.
  2. Check out the heat map for areas especially in need of cleanup.
  3. When you help pick up litter, log it in our app for points.
  4. Repeat #2 and #3 enough times to receive a monetary reward!

How we built it
