Year 3 FMP
For my final project my only direction was to focus on a current news issue that is happening in the world. I decided to research into the impact humans are having on the environment, with a focus on plastic within our oceans. Research threw me into a direction of miscommunication within our recycling issue. I realsied there was a gap within this market. People of all ages/class/demographic didn't understand what materials could be recycles and what colour bin it was dedicated to.
We are in the technology era, nearly everyone within the UK has a smart phone, I was led through research to best communicate my solution through an app. My app would inform by scanning the bar codes on the item to whether it was recyclable and what colour bin it belonged in. The app would send notification alerts a day before that specific boroughs bins were collected to make sure they were out, alongside interactive quizzes, eco-friendly merchandise and an option to take specific materials down to a designated area for disposal for money in return.
My app was designed to inform and educate people how to recycle, what to recycle and how to further help the environment.
