PAPERART / A platform for paper recycling


PAPERART is a platform for transforming discarded paper into new products through a redesign. Users can sell or buy discarded materials, take courses about how to turn waste into a new product and they can sell their creations. Combined with a recycling and storage system for discarded paper, the app facilitates crafters to buy the appropriate materials and turn them into DIY products by performing artificial intelligence analysis and comparison and also provides a platform for users to sell the final products.
