Junk to Treasure

About this Project:

We created Junk to Treasure because there is a lot of trash around Staten Island. Sometimes the garbage is in school, but it is also in the park and eventually even the ocean. Our app is a fun way to get rid of the trash and earn money at the same time.

After creating an account the take a picture or video of themselves disposing trash. This will turn into cash prizes!

We hop you enjoy our presentation.

I love the concept of this app. I've wanted something like this for a while. I know in some areas and even in other countries, people can earn money vouchers just by recycling. Where will the funding come from so that you can pay users? How can users cash out their earnings? I would definitely be interested in seeing this app develop further and actually take flight- it's an amazing concept that will help the environment so much.
