Neat little app that has drastically limited my shopping choices... Not that this is a bad thing.

A great idea but poor implementation of accuracy. It seems anyone can make claims as to what corporations parent any given company. Frontier Natural Products is not owned by General Mills, although it inaccurately shows up in the "family tree" on this app. Uninstalling.

Conscientious Shopping This app makes it easy for me to shop with a conscious. I have had a positive experience using it. It delivers! I recommend it highly.
