ReduceWaste is a project based on sustainability. It aims to help people learn about and manage every day’s waste. The app will help (among others), people who can not afford food by offering free meals and free products
Everyday we throw away so much food and it seems so disrespectful for our planet and so unfair for humans who can’t afford the basic human need. We identified that this crucial matter which affects our precious planet, is unknown to most of us, or we don’t use easy methods to reduce our every day waste.
Design an app that will help reduce waste, save money, offer free meals and products to people who can’t afford them, and of course to educate about the general waste problem

My focus was specifically on finding deals and restaurants for reduce waste
After ideating and drafting some paper wireframes, I created the initial designs for the ReduceWaste app. These designs focused on delivering personalised guidance to users to help them find deals and offers
