William Hines (Computer Science): Reseed - the mission to redistribute unidentified wealth
Every year over 250 million gallons of oil, 10 million trees and 1 billion gallons of water are used to create receipts, generating 1.5 billion lbs of trash in America alone. At the same time, paper receipts often get lost. Reseed is a mobile application and loyalty card program which removes the need for paper receipts and allows users to access their receipts online. A proportion of the money saved by not printing receipts will be donated to plant trees.
Reseed is a student led business, and our pilot program will begin on the UCL campus later this year, before extending to retailers in greater London.
The wider vision of Reseed is innovation in wealth distribution. This focusses on areas that have previously been under-targeted and ignored, including airmiles, phone minutes/texts and distributed computing.
Reseed - give up something you don’t need. Give someone else something they do.
