No-code solution that helps shoppers make more sustainable purchasing decisions or recycle their existing products.
Your task is to create a no-code solution that empowers shoppers to make more sustainable purchasing decisions or recycle their existing products. When devising your solutions, focus on your own age group and how the solutions you develop can help you and others adopt more sustainable practices in your daily lives. The ultimate outcome should be a visual prototype that allows for interaction and testing.
Your solution should aim to achieve the following:
Enable sustainable purchasing decisions: Enable users to make informed and sustainable choices while shopping. Your solution should provide relevant information, such as product sustainability ratings, ethical certifications, or carbon footprint calculations, to help users understand the environmental impact of their purchases.
Support recycling and reuse: Encourage users to recycle or repurpose their existing products. Incorporate features that provide guidance on recycling methods, nearby recycling centers, or creative ideas for upcycling products.
Consider the efficiency of user engagement in your solution. Instead of requiring continuous monitoring and immediate responses, provide an interface that displays relevant prompts and questions. This interface should present shopping-related information on one side, such as product details or sustainability indicators, and the user's options or actions on the other side. Clearly highlight areas where users can contribute to sustainability, enabling them to address multiple prompts or questions simultaneously.
