The Game

Recyclo is a game that introduces users to recycling through a fun as well as informative sorting application. Players not only have fun playing the game, they are also rewarded for their time: once the user shows proficiency in recycling, he or she will be rewarded with an item from a sponsor.

Why is it important?

Recycling is an underutilized method of reducing the human footprint in the United States, where a low supply barely meets an exorbitant demand. Unfortunately, American education on recycling is in dire need of improvement: most citizens are not able to identify which items can safely be recycled. Our project is aimed at this need: an eye-catching informative website along with an educational game that tests your ability and gives users an introduction to the world of recycling.
