Amazing App to Change the World, but Pollution doesn’t Work

This app is awesome. I really feel like I’m making a difference. I’ve already submitted two air quality reports on my phone, but whenever I try to submit a plastic pollution report, it lets me take a picture, asks me what I did with it, confirms my location, but then it just loads and never does anything. Is there any way to fix this issue?

EDIT: It works fine on IOS, but now neither air pollution or plastic works on Android.
