Ethical Barcode

https://ethicalbarcode.com/

This American based app boasts over 60,000 data points that it uses to see how environmentally friendly your food choices at the supermarket are. It is a barcode scanner that can tell you who owns or manufactures the product you pick up. This can give you a score and any relevant green or sustainable certifications the creators have.

We couldn’t find it on the Apple or Google app stores, but American friends say it works great. As soon as you download it to your American phone, you can support only brands that share the love you have for the world.

Feedback is also visible to anyone browsing the brand’s pages.

Inside is a database of over 3,000 brands that is growing every month. They are specifically on the lookout for new sustainable fashion brands that have an eye for fashion.

It doesn’t matter if you’re not even looking for something to buy rght this minute because there are enough options for you to just window shop. You can use the app to browse, find sustainability tips, guides and eco-concious news.

The only drawback, but maybe a result of the demographic who would spend the time shopping online, is that it seems geared towards women’s fashion and options. On the other hand, maybe women care more about the environment than men? But you can always filter by fashion type so that’s not a problem at all if you’re serious about the cause.
