SnapTrash: a mobile app to get rid of plastic waste(imaginarycloud.com)

    You'd be surprised by the amount of trash - not only plastic - that you can find on beaches nowadays. Even if most cases are not as extreme as the ones that you'll find by doing a simple search for beaches + trash, one would take entire days to clean the average amount of plastic spread around beaches. Again, if people cleaned after themselves, this app would be plain useless and that would actually be a good thing.

    Obviously, the main problem is pollution and the lack of respect for the environment, but there's no app that'll change the crappy attitudes some of us have.

      Unfortunately, it doesn't surprise me. I've spent many years volunteering with local groups in an effort to clean local state and national parks, including beaches. Being actively involved in environmental groups gives me a good amount of perspective :)

      To his point you can't change the root cause, but the way you respond to it matters.
