Ratings and Reviews
Fun idea but not necessarily easier for cleanup. The app does motivate me to want to clean and track the trash that’s being removed but it’s got a few issues I can’t quite figure out. For instance, I thought there would be different default categories like aluminum cans or masks. I made a category for masks but misspelt it a cant correct or remove it now. Also, I couldn’t figure out how to end a session. I had to close the app and when I came back, it let me chose to end or resume. I think it would be nice if the app automatically had more detailed choices like cigarette butts or fast food garbage (maybe the city will see that McDonald’s is not cleaning up). Outside of the critiques, it’s a motivating app and the future rewards will be a nice tough. I also hope it can get people signed up to do weekend cleanups with fellow neighbors.
A Smarter App for us all
Finally, an app on my phone that I feel good about using!
A practice in mindfulness, this app’s been a vehicle for seeing, touching, experiencing, appreciating and re-acquainting myself with all the little things I used to just walk by everyday... and a reminder that I have the power to change the little things I don’t like (is it so hard to use the corner bin, neighbor-who-shall-remain-anonymous!! Sheesh!)
Rubbish Makes Picking Up Trash Fun!
I love how user friendly this app is. Plus the icons are super cute. 😍 All I want to do is run around town picking up and geo tagging trash. It’s such a great way to catch up with friends or meet someone new. Rubbish makes you feel good by doing good. Now get to it! Everyone wants to live in a beautiful neighborhood but it’s up to us, the citizens, to make it happen.
