Buycott helps you to organize your everyday consumer spending so that it reflects your principles.
When you use Buycott to scan a product, it will look up the product, determine what brand it belongs to, and figure out what company owns that brand (and who owns that company, ad infinitum). It will then cross-check the product owners against the companies and brands included in the campaigns you’ve joined, in order to tell you if the scanned product conflicts with one of your campaign commitments.
When we went to the grocery store today, I couldn’t remember why I hadn’t already downloaded this app. I had to search through my Facebook history to find the posting about this that someone had made so I could remember the product name and find its web site. That’s when it all came back to me. The Android version of this is not out yet.
I am hoping the next time I visit the grocery store, I’ll then remember to come back to this post to see if the Android version is available yet.
