Can personal data help people reduce their carbon footprint?

Recycling can get confusing if you aren’t familiar with the rules of your municipalities. Recyche is a new app that could help consumers figure out what each product’s packaging is made of and identify the proper recycling for that particular product. By profiling exactly what they are recycling and assisting users in determining how to recycle various products in major cities, users can also track their recycling history.

This knowledge could help people be more sustainably-minded, by explaining how to recycle a product and by letting them track the products they have recycled throughout the year. The application needs access to the phone camera and your location information data to use some of the features.
