About this Project:

Healthy Recycling is a smartphone app to help the planet and its ecosystems. The issue the app addresses are the 6 wonderful benefits of recycling: 1. Prevents pollution 2. Reduces waste 3. Conserves natural resources 4. Reduces greenhouse gases 5. Conserves energy 6. Reduces demand for raw materials. The idea for the app was motivated by wanting to empower those who want to help conserve the planet and its ecosystems but are not sure how to do it or where to start. The project works in 6 steps and helps users by giving them a good experience to make money by recycling as they help the planet be a better place for all to live and breathe in.

Great Design
Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Student Programs Manager at Postman — Emoti-Con Judge
Your pitch deck has a beautiful aesthetic with a noble theme. The idea of getting paid to recycle sounds exciting, but also raises some questions. How much money can people make by recycling with this app? How could the project be funded? Who will handle the items for recycling? It could be interesting to look at the business models of other "cashback" apps like Swagbucks or Survey Junkey for inspiration on how to incentivize users with money in a sustainable way. You're off to a great start!

👏 Program Manager at Mouse — Emoti-Con Judge
I absolutely LOVE your presentation! All of your work feels cohesive; you clearly spent time thinking about your project's brand and theme, and ran with it! I love the vibes your app gives off; it makes me feel "earth-y"! If I had an app that incentivized me to recycle by paying, I'd use it 24/7! What a great idea to promote sustainability and encourage sustainable practices. I especially appreciated the feature where the app tells you where to sort the different items you're recycling. I would love to see this app developed further. Amazing job y'all!

This project manages to present good arguments in each of the evaluation criteria. I believe that the pitch was effective and the message conveyed was clear. The social cause/impact and perspective on the world shed light on how the author is concerned with the world and how she contributes to positively intervene in it. The design is artistic and, for that reason alone, is already captivating. The idea of giving money in exchange for recycling is straightforward and effective, especially for an adult's mind. Economically, it can be worked on more by experts and economists, compared to the models that currently exist in the world (few and very localized), but all the intention of this project educates people. And that's good.
