Garbit Featured Project Image

About this Project:

Garbit is a smartphone app that encourages us all to recycle. The design process was born out of a necessity to encourage all youth to have a substantial hand in saving the planet and the future. The app, if it could be built, would work in the following manner: Garbit is a smartphone app where you get paid for recycling—by keeping track of what you recycle (plastic, metal, and paper)—when scanning the ticket you’re going to receive every time you put an item in a recycling machine.

Earn money in 5 easy steps!
1. Sign up
2. Create a username and password
3. Include your email
4. Postal address
5. Get to scanning and get paid!

Most importantly (let's not forget), the 4 benefits of this recycling app are:
01 Prevents Pollution
02 Reduces waste sent to landfills and incinerators
03 Conserves natural resources
04 Creates jobs, which produces economic benefits

Visually appealing and a very well thought out idea

What an astonishing project! I really loved it. The presentation is appealing, the design process was well made and grounded in some important steps, typical of a good UX designer job, and it looks like the wireframe/prototype would cause great impact. I would consider to develop/show specifically how your design process was, and the wireframe/prototype as well in order to check the app's functionality. The pitch was clear and understandable, the message was clear and the money issue is the innovative part in order to bring more users to this cause. For now, I wish you good luck and keep up with the good work!
