Ratings and Reviews
At last, we can vote with our wallets
The inertia towards change that afflicts corporations is so powerful and widespread. Add to that deep pockets that not only influence society's laws, but also effortlessly thwart legal challenges from the little man. This state of affairs looms so large in our lives that we're often overwhelmed and feel we can't do anything about it. At last, we (effortlessly) can: by voting with our wallets.
Has potential, however, 3 out of the first 4 items I scanned were not in the database and life is too short for the lengthy process for adding them. Also Meridian peanut butter which only contains 100% peanuts and nothing else scores less than those containing palm oil and I’d question if there is any such thing as ‘sustainable ‘ palm oil! Will watch the development of this app with interest.
Developer Response ,
This is clearly something we want to improve on and I'm sorry more products did not come through. We cover most of the main supermarkets but are also trying to include Tesco in the data soon. Hopefully that will help your rating! As a small social enterprise team we are trying everything we can to make this app work for people. Kind regards, James
sustainable shopping is here
As a co-founder I clearly love the app. Now though it’s about how Giki can help inspire people to make small regular changes that are good for them, better for the environment and fairer to others based on the issues they care about.
