'Buycott': The App So Popular It Crashes Site

  1. Reblogged this on Girl Gone Farming and commented:
    An app that helps you vote with your wallet! Simply scan a barcode to see the corporate parentage of a product. I checked my ACV (Bragg’s), coconut oil (Dr. Bronner’s), and cayenne pepper (Frontier) and all were clear of Monsanto connections. The best part? The app is free!

  2. I really like the idea behind this app and think it could be a great tool if used properly. I do share your concerns about slacktivism, but this app will (hopefully) at least take peoples activity away from their computer screens and into the free market where it matters most. I am also bothered by the reality that those with more resources have a louder voice, but that just makes it all the more important that those with that power use it wisely and to the benefit of all.
