Reducing Cardboard Waste


Our goal is to reduce cardboard box waste with 3 approaches
1. Boxy Creations: Demonstrate additional uses for cardboard boxes
2. Boxy Finder: Promote the continual reuse of boxes
3. Boxy Alternatives: Provide alternatives to using a cardboard box

We are focusing mainly on the second approach where our prototype help people tag locations for cardboard box sources as well as locate these sources to pick up cardboard boxes. We also have additional landing pages for the other two.

Prototype can be seen here:
