Providing a political transparency tool for US voter-consumersBy SpendConsciously
The influence of money on politics is writ large in the US, with corporations making a wide range of contributions to candidates for all seats of government. SpendConsciously is seeking to help people make the connection between the products they buy, and the political activities of the companies behind the products. Their BuyPartisan app allows you to scan a product barcode to reveal campaign contributions made by the company, and in some cases also its senior management and board members.
