ABOUT "GO GREEN"
GO GREEN is an environmental outreach and stewardship program organized by We Sense's youth volunteer team. It's designed to inspire and engage participants through hosting creative and educational events focused on the three Rs - "Reduce, Re-use & Recycle," incorporating themed exhibits, and interactive and hands-on activities using recycled materials. The program goals are:
- AWARENESS: Develop a greater awareness of the waste problem and impact through individual choices in daily lives.
- SOLUTION: Understand and do what we can do - the three Rs: Reduce, Re-use, and Recycle.
- ACTION: Invite participants to make positive changes.
Stay tuned for our upcoming GO GREEN events! Interested in getting involved? Please SIGN UP HERE or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
EcoEye App is a friendly technology tool created by our youth team. It utilizes the mobile phone camera and AI recognition technology to classify various wastes and their recyclability. EcoEye App incorporates AI-Vision technology from Google’s ML Kit and IBM Watson services. Using these services, we can classify whether a product is recyclable or not. The clean app UI, made with Flutter SDK, also makes the app more engaging to use. We are working on gamifying it as next step, so users can join to compete for top recyclers.
With the growing importance of technology, we are particularly excited about the prospects of EcoEye app in motivating and improving recycling practices. We hope you would join us for improving recycling with technology. Contact us if you are interested in participating in our next demo event!
