Why Did We Create FabSwapp
FabSwapp was created by the staff at MobiBlossom Solutions as a side project to make a difference in our community. Many businesses have taken on these volunteer projects in many ways such as street clean up programs, youth development programs and other programs that help people in need.
In June 2015, we took on a challenge to find a meaningful project that could play our skills and strengths to create a positive impact on our society in an eco-conscious way. We did our research and came up with the idea of saving reusable resources from entering our landfills by making a mobile app that would help users barter their no-longer-needed items for what they need locally.
During our meetings about this project we came across a few pro’s and cons and compared to other people who have attempted the same feat. and failed. Most swapping required a one to one swap which ruled out a lot of great pairings. Also a lot of swap sites allowed people to pick from a large pool and did not allow the user to browse items only close to them. We worked hard at finding a solution that did not require shipping.
The end result is FabSwapp. We designed and developed this app for you. We also appreciate any feedback to make FabSwapp even better.
