GoodGuide provides consumers with the necessary information they need to make better shopping
decisions. The goal of this app is for users to choose products that contain better ingredients with fewer
health concerns, while also compelling manufacturers and retailers to sell less harmful products. Using
the GoodGuide app, you can scan the barcodes of products while you’re shopping to determine whether
it has any hidden chemicals or damaging substances. By using this app, you can prevent the number of
harmful chemicals in your own life, as well as drive manufacturers to cease production.
