What is Back2earth?
A Mobile-based IT Solution to aid Environmental Destruction Management. It comprises of a mobile application to Tag, Monitor, Run & Evaluate a given problem-point through crowd sourcing & information sharing while transmitting the validated data to relevant public authorities with interest in environmental protection. Whether it be tagging pollution, tree-cutting offenses, smoking vehicles, emissions or other forms of environmental destruction, Back2Earth can capture it all. Moreover, we have incorporated a gaming element to gather and retain the interest of social media users through Facebook, to keep them alert and interested in contributing to a social cause where it be online or on-the-go. Anywhere, anytime, anyplace as long as you have a device that can access the Internet, Back2Earth helps you to support the protection of your environment. In an age where the world is driven by Mobile Apps, where people prefer living online and are highly focused on convenience, mobility and accessibility, we decided to make an IT-based environmental solution that is locally customizable, socially engaging for a generous cause and which is mobile and easily accessible!
