The time has finally come — no more online purchases without thinking about where your money is going or what it's supporting. No more are the days of uninformed acquisitions of your favorite products that lead to regretting what you bought. Adios to the past days of shopping with blinders and spending your money with companies that fund projects against your traditions and values.

Welcome to the future of consciousness shopping. A place where you can consider your values before making another impulsive purchase — whether it be that groovy-looking beret from Amazon or one of those antique-looking lamps from Target. Say goodbye to the old shopping days and hello to VotingSmarter's new Google Chrome extension — an advanced wave of informed investments.

“[VotingSmarter’s Chrome plug-in] matches me to the brands that donated and lobbied candidates and causes I care about. Companies are using OUR money to promote THEIR interests. It’s time my money goes to good!”
