Composition

The EcoSwap web service is carefully composed to create a user-friendly and engaging experience that promotes sustainable consumption and environmental impact reduction. The layout includes Home page and essential Sections that guide users through the website's offerings and community features. 

Typography

The EcoSwap website uses a clean, modern typography (Inter font) to ensure readability and reflect the eco-friendly mission of the platform.

Colours

The color scheme of the EcoSwap website revolves around a green palette, symbolizing growth, sustainability, and environmental consciousness. A clean white background is used to create a bright and inviting space. This also ensures that the green elements and text stand out clearly. Black and dark green text colours are used to ensure readability and provide a clean contrast against the white background.
