Team 2 Project Description

Our project will be a Google Chrome extension, which will enable the people who add it to their browser to know when they are supporting fast fashion. This will happen by having a message/ad/picture pop up on their screen which will serve both as a reminder and therefore create a conscious idea of what they are doing and how they are supporting fast flashing as well as supply information of fast fashion.
