The goal is to create recycling awareness and effective results by bringing together three of nowadays’ trend topics: gaming, sustainable development, and social networking. The Recycling Network is a tool that put all these aspects together.
The Recycling Network is available as a web portal and as a mobile app. You build your profile and become a user, just like a regular social network. Once you have an old electronic device bothering you at home, just take it to to an affiliated depot: the website and the app have an interactive map based on your location showing the nearest to you and also a full list of them.
Once you get your e-waste there, its entry is registered by scanning the product bar code or inputting its serial number; and you start collecting points according to the product discarded. For example, for a pair of used batteries delivered, you’ll be rewarded with 5 points; for an outdated cellphone, 15 points.
