Never stop exploring

An app for everyday political speech

Written By: admin - Sep• 15•14

Ahh, how I love fun, free apps.

I stumbled across this gem recently and knew I had to share. It’s called Eyespend and for those who are in the mood for a a TMI moment it’s really interesting.

Download the app. Scan the barcodes of your favorite brands. See what causes, politicians and PACs are getting their (OK your) dollars. For those who like to spend consciously, it was a major “woah” moment.

The app was fun to try out, but if I thought like that every time I walked into Target I’d have to start making my own sweaters from wool I harvested from a hypothetical backyard sheep.

Go ahead, who do your dollars support? You might be surprised.
