Inspired by the litter that we all see and produce every day - cleanUp is an environmental cleanup app powered BY the community FOR the community.
Challenge to post before and after pics of areas that need cleanup. i.e. a before picture of a beach littered with trash, and an after pic of the beach with clean sand now visible. This helps to provide accountability and proof while also encouraging community engagement and support.
What it does
Community members will be able to take and upload pictures of areas that contain litter. Once an area gets a certain number of posts, it will be flagged as a cleanup spot that other users can see. When a user accepts a cleanup request, it is removed from the list and re-populated as 'needing review.' Other users can confirm that the clean up was done and once confirmed, it will be removed.
