With the Right Tools, Great Things Can Happen
The Plastic Project is a student led project started near Seattle, Washington. We aim to tackle pollution and promote an eco-friendly lifestyle by equipping communities with resources through our progressive web application, RecycleScan. This app uses the power of AI to help people recycle correctly and track their progress so users can meet their sustainability goals.
What We Offer
We offer a fully responsive progressive web application. This means it can be accessed anywhere, anytime and on any device, including computer, iOS, and Android. The app contains an AI tool to help users recycle correctly and also features weekly challenges to keep users engaged.
Our app centers around a computer-vision system that users can use to separate types of waste with a photo input. The app also securely tracks users data (using Amazon Web Services) to provide users with a customized experience
Join the team
We offer volunteering roles for anyone -- whether you're a skilled developer, talented writer, or you just craft an excellent email -- theres a spot for you on the team.
There are two categories for volunteering: platform, and projects. Platform volunteers work on the app and website and create content. Project volunteers will work on innovative climate-focused projects.
