Planet Care aims to addresses the challenges of integrating eco-friendly practices into their daily routines by offering a platform that makes sustainable living accessible, engaging, and enjoyable. 
The app targets environmentally conscious individuals, empowering them to contribute to a greener future and create a positive impact on the planet.
