Buycott? There’s an (OCA) App for That.
You know who the bad guys are. The brands and companies that have
pumped millions into campaigns aimed at defeating your right to know.
But there are a lot of companies on your side, too. The best way to
reward those companies is to buy their products. So we’ve just made it a
little easier to find them.
The Organic Consumers Association has created “Buy Organic Brands that Support Your Right to Know,” a campaign on the popular buycott.com
mobile phone app. It works like this. First, download the app (it’s
free), and sign up for our campaign. Then take your mobile phone with
you to the store, and use the app to scan the barcode on products before
you buy them. The app will look up the product, determine what brand it
belongs to, and figure out what company owns that brand .Then it will
cross-check the product owners against the companies and brands included
in our “Right to Know” campaign.
