The socially conscious shopper, you know the type, they won't shop at Walmart or wear shoes made out of anything other than hemp. Well now there's the perfect app for those who would like to know exactly what it is that they're buying, and which parent company it benefits. The Buycott app is newly available for iPhone and Android that allows you to scan the barcode of an item, letting you trace it back to its parent company. Though it aids the boycott of Monsanto and Koch Brothers’ companies, the app was designed to be politically neutral user base. The downside to this app? For the ultra socially conscious the app could actually make it difficult to buy items as simple as cereal and toothpaste.
