BuyPartisan is an app that describes itself as a "nutritional label for your political values," showing the foods you purchase and which political campaigns these companies have supported.

To begin, it's as simple as scanning a UPC code, or looking up a company or a specific product. From there, you'll be able to see how "Republican" or how "Democrat" a company is based on its own political contributions, as well as those from its employees, CEOs and Board of Directors. Although the back of a box is generally where you'll find some important nutritional information about a product, this free-to-download app by Spend Consciously takes buying in accordance with your personal values up to another level. The app is currently in beta, but information from most major companies has been added.
