We were inspired by the book Doughnut Economics by Kate Raworth, which talks in depth about the circular economy. The circular economy is the idea that our economy should mimic that natural cycles of life. Instead of cradle-to-grave, which pollutes and destroys the planet, what if we could live in a cradle-to-cradle world, where everything is reused, recycled, and almost never thrown out. We wanted to figure out how we as --consumers-- custodians could participate in this circular economy

What it does

Re will give you tips on how to repair, upcycle, and recycle the goods in your custody. This can be anything from your water bottle to your car.

How we built it

We used HTML and JavaScript for the code, and Figma and Adobe XD for the design

Challenges we ran into

We didn't have time to implement as much as we wanted to

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Learning to use JavaScript Creating a beautiful mockup Learning what the circular economy is

What we learned

How to resolve issues as a team How close we are to seriously exceeding the natural boundaries of Earth's cycles

What's next for Re

Keep developing until we have a beta
