Mobile app to help reduce waste

A friend of mine launched an app last year that helps individuals reduce single-use waste through tracking and sharing. It also helps you get a sense of overall contributions your efforts make.

It appears that most of the friends and family to whom I've spoken find it frustrating to not have a sense of the repurcussions of their actions. They know some statistics but they seem removed from their personal efforts. This app makes efforts toward personaling individual's experiences and rewards.

I tried to post an image but kept getting an error that the file was too large even though I reduced it to 35k.

Hi Julia, interesting post! Any chance you could find an image to go along with it? Images help grab attention and tell a story with higher impact. You should be able to use the Update Entry button on the right of your post and follow the instructions to add images from there. We know occasionally people have issues uploading images so let us know by hitting the Feedback button at the bottom of most pages of our site if you face any problems. Looking forward to seeing more of your inspiring insights on OpenIDEO.
