We are making an app called ThinLines that helps people save money, reduce traffic & CO2, and get same day peer-to-peer delivery. When you scan a barcode, our patented search algorithm calculates fuel cost, drive time, traffic, and parking to reveal the true effective cost is for a purchase. We also connect to the user's calendar to see if an upcoming appointment is closer to the cheapest item. So we can recommend the cheapest total cost item and the best day to purchase.

Part of the algorithm calculates carbon output for a purchase or online delivery. Users can customize their sensitivity to either lowest carbon or price via slider in the app. If another user is closer to the item, they can deliver it for a small delivery fee plus they "bank" the reduced CO2 to their account.

We have a working backend on AWS & a private barebones version of the app. We have a new design but need to raise $25k to build the new design and connect the peer delivery piece.
