Via Red Alert:


For liberals wanting to avoid buying products from conservative companies, there’s now an app for that.


According to Forbes, freelance programmer Ivan Pardo recently unveiled Buycott, an app designed to discourage consumers from purchasing products made by Koch Industries, owned by Charles and David Koch. The app bears a striking resemblance to one proposed by Darcy Burner, a former Microsoft programmer and Democratic congressional candidate for Washington’s first district. She unveiled her idea for a similar app last year, at Netroots Nation — an annual liberal conference — though Pardo and his team were already working on Buycott.


Pardo’s app, available on iPhone and Android, allows users to scan a product’s barcode before placing it in their shopping cart. Buycott then traces the item’s origins back to its parent company and alerts shoppers if the company is one they should avoid.


“Buycott helps you organize your everyday consumer spending to support causes you care about,” the app’s description reads.
