Thank you so much for your comment! I LOVE your idea of implementing educational videos and live stream events on the app. It would definitely be a useful tool in educating users about environmentalism. In pertains to sustaining user's engagement on the platform-I love the idea of snapping a picture every time you accomplish an aspect of your goal, or even notifications to nudge/remind the user about their goal. I was thinking it could be something similar to Snapchat-You start a streak with your goal, and you keep snapping pictures of you actually achieving your goal. And the longer amount of days you implement or achieve your goal the longer your 'streak' is. It would also be cool to detect the location of the user-only if they allowed- and send them a notification reminder every time they are in a specific location to complete their goal. Ex: If their goal is to use metal straws, every time they are in a restaurant we would send them a notification to use their metal straw. If their goal was to bike to school and avoid car emissions, we would send them a notification every time they were on the move or at specific times during the day. Sadie and I are thinking of creating a companion app to the website once we get all the features finalized and functioning. This way the overall solution can be more effective and accessible.
Thank you again, and Sadie and I appreciate the feedback. We can't wait to start improving our website!
