If conscious consumerism is important to you -- that is using your dollars to vote for brands and products that are ethical and are aligned with your values -- this app is one you definitely need to check out. Glia matches customers with local businesses that are compatible with their economic, political and social beliefs. This helps you to only shop at places you can support on a moral level while supporting the local economy.

Through the Glia app, users create profiles that reflect their values (which are determined in a simple poll). Glia prioritizes the causes you feel strongly about, so you can also avoid lining the pockets of those who work against the issues that matter to you.
