Urban Fruit Initiative

The Urban Fruit Initiative is a cooperative social enterprise connecting fruit tree owners with too much fruit with those who want to help pick and share in the bounty. Fruit is redistributed amongst those involved with the bulk of it being donated to sustainably produce a locally-sourced apple juice with great taste.

The hack involves a web application to facilitate the coordination of information needed for registration of users (fruit tree owners and volunteer pickers), scheduling of apple collections and brokering (matching and verifying) amongst users to arrange harvesting.

Imagine no wasted food, by efficiently sharing the non-used raw materials after your meal preparation.

Hacking Food Waste in private Homes or in community living spaces for students, would save water, phosphor, CO2, money as well as pollution from transport trucks.

Eat Exchange is a mobile application, which allows local community to share food that would have been wasted. The application enables individuals to advertise the food that they wouldn’t be able to consume. Then the supply of spare food would be collected by the members of the community who would otherwise need to buy it. The application contributes to the reduction of waste generated by consumers, methane discharge, as well as to the decrease of CO2 emissions and water consumption.
