Overview of the problem
Did you know that the planet has warmed by over 0.8 degrees since 1880? Though this may not sound like a lot, imagine the amount of excess energy that would be needed to heat up the entire planet by almost a degree! Global warming is the biggest threat that we face. The consequences will span the globe and affect each and every one of us unless we take a step.
What it does
How we built it
We created a web application and chrome extension which allows people to see the impact that they are creating on the environment, both through their internet browsing habits and through their transport journeys.
We created Carbon Ain’t Cool with the inspiration to impact people all over the globe and make saving the environment accessible for all.
Challenges we ran into
Sometimes we couldn't spot the bugs as we were working on different operating systems.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud to finish this website in under 48 hrs entirely from scratch with a lot of features in it while sitting on 3 different continents.
What we learned
We learned how to integrate chrome extension and Twilio WhatsApp chatbot to a React and Node-based website.
What's next for Carbon Aint Cool
We want the website to be accessible for many people across the world so we'll definitely build android and IOS apps. We also want to add more features for drivers and users using Google Maps API so that it can help them as travel companions.
