We are excited to announce Ethical Barcode has released a new app that lets you uncover what you’re truly supporting when you shop. Scan barcodes quickly at the grocery store, and make an empowered, ethical decision on what to buy. Ethical Barcode is using the newly updated CSRHub Specification for REST Access (CSRA) API to power CSRHub ratings into the app. Use Ethical Barcode to empower your next trip to the grocery store and instantly find out which companies really share your values on child labor, animal testing, deforestation and other ethical issues.
The app is already receiving some great reviews at the Google Play store:
“Just what I needed! It’s now convenient to shop cruelty free. I’m so excited!” – KGV
