Humans make a lot of stuff. Consequently, they also throw away a lot of stuff. For ten weeks, we explored the life cycle of an object. We began to research the social and economic factors that contribute to object accumulation in young adults and it led us to Revive.
Revive is a digital platform that promotes neighborhood-based freecycling. Freecycling is the act of giving away usable unwanted items to others. The concept of freecycling is gaining popularity, but lacks refinement and designated platforms. Revive provides that platform, and takes the repurposing one step further by not only preventing objects from going to the landfill, but inspires users to part with static objects in their lives to help others.
