Money = Votes
Do you feel powerless due to politicians not representing us anymore? Do you feel like companies with lobbyists have a louder voice in important decision making than we the people do? Then vote with your money. Companies hear money (or lack of) more clearly than they do the vocal concerns of the public. This app allows you to know which companies are profiting from your grocery store or product purchases. Buycott give you the power to make informed purchasing decisions. Vote with your dollar, help the companies who care with your hard earned money. And remember that we are all in this together.
A good resource for information but needs major work!
I starting using this application fairly recently and while I admit some of the things that i purchase are less than mainstream, I have been diligent in adding as much as i can to fill the database Buycott uses for the good of all of us. What annoys me are the constant app crashes (10 times in the last two days, usually while I am trying to submit a review for a product), and the scanner going crazy (trying to scan a product 10+ times in a row rapidly without pulling anything up, like it seizes up pulling an entry from the database and so just keeps trying to scan with the same results). I really do want to keep my buying power away from certain corporations and keep it moving towards better causes, and this would be a whole lot easier without the glitches. Overall, 3 out of 5 for in-depth data on corporations and corp. trees but you have to fix it before I give it anything higher.
Outdated, full of false information
I’ve always said that capitalism could be used to accomplish great change by informed consumers, so I was excited at the idea of this app.
I’m disappointed to find it hasn’t seen an update in 2 years and is full of bad info. Many companies are cited as having connections to certain causes (positive or negative) that aren’t true. Take, for instance, Tillamook, a dairy company from my home state of Oregon. They’re listed as being a primary client of an Israeli textile manufacturer and the source cited for this says NOTHING about Tillamook. I found that almost all sources cited for all 26 of their conflicts showed no mention of Tillamook. This was the case for the vast majority of conflicts I checked the source for.
What’s the purpose of this app if it’s full of false claims with no real sources? How will that aid anyone in being a conscious consumer? It won’t. I’ll go back to relying on my own research.
