Heal the Bay App

I was inspired to design this app after volunteering with Heal the Bay, an environmental nonprofit dedicated to making Los Angeles's coastal waters clean and advocating for environmental legislation. Heal the Bay coordinates beach cleanups to gather information on the ocean debris and reports these numbers on their Marine Debris Database.

As my team picked up waste at the beach cleanup, we tallied each item with pen and paper. After collecting over 1,000 pieces of trash, it became difficult to manually keep track of the items. This method of data collection allows for errors and inefficiencies, simultaneously creating more paper waste.

 If developed, this app would allow waste to be quickly counted and categorized and would directly upload the numbers to Heal the Bay's  Marine Debris Database , eliminating the need for human data entry.
