We were inspired to build this out of our lover for nature and environmentalism. We have all seen the lack of care and support society is showing for the environment. We believed that it was most important to educate people on how to take care of the environment.
What it does
The website is an informational website that educates people about environmentalism. We raise awareness about various topics such as acid rain, deforestation, pollution, and global warming. We also have pages devoted to specific issues like climate change and fossil fuels. Along with that we have a page to advise people on how to get started with saving Earth and a page about the three r's which are an important concept in environmentalism.
How we built it
Challenges I ran into
We ran into challenges with communication, we did not have any common methods of communication to use so had to resort to emailing which was a hassle and slowed communication. We also had issues with the short time frame and trying to submit the project on time.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of overcoming our communication issues and being able to communicate effectively. We are also proud of overcoming our struggles as beginners at web development.We were able to effectively wire frame using Figma and were able to create an user friendly design.
What we learned
We learnt about web development and online collaboration with repl.it. We also learnt about wireframing and design with Figma along with the importance of design. We also got the opportunity to learn more about the environment as we strove to educate people further regarding it.
What's next for Saving Earth
In the future we hope to add a subscription form to send out weekly newsletters about news in the environmentalist community. We also hope to create an online community devoted to saving the environment with a login system created using Firebase authentication.
