Animal agriculture is the often overlooked, but leading cause of the environmental destruction taking place on our planet. Economic development is rapidly advancing in countries like Brazil, Russia, India, and China. By 2050 there will be billions of people in a new middle class. These people will be able to do things that they weren't able to do before like drive their own cars and buy meat and dairy products easily. Our planet will not be able to sustain these heightened levels of consumption. Our hack aims to spread awareness on this issue.
What it does
You are about to be stranded on an island for one week. You are given currency to buy food for your stay on the island. The twist is that your currency is not money, but instead the earth's resources. Buy as much food as you can but beware, if you chose the meat-heavy products you will soon realize that your wallet is empty (you've depleted all your resources) and you might starve!
How we built it
We used React to build our web application.
Challenges we ran into
Working with dynamic state variables in React was difficult. Also finding the data on how many resources each food item uses.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We learned a lot about React development along with animal agriculture and environmental issues.
