Hey Christel, Thanks very much. I have just had a look through your idea and it looks awesome. would love to have a chat about how you plan to implement the app, i am a big fan of your idea to use the app to make the database immediately accessible to those with a smart phone.
This could be an absolute game changer if it was supported by major retailers
In terms of systems that could provide inspiration, i was thinking that something along the lines of or an adjustment to the currently utilised OPRL packaging labelling system used in the UK would be good. currently it tells you how widely recycled each packaging component is, but doesn't score it on its "recyclability". i think the addition of a system that shows the GHG emissions and the "circularity" of the components could help to demonstrate the environmental cost of each component and inform consumers to make more informed purchasing decisions.
with regard to the picture, i will try and find one that fits the idea
