3 Apps That Can Save You Time
With so much information readily available to us all the time, we often become confused as a consumer. I found these three really helpful apps that I use all the time when I'm out shopping. We hope it'll save you time so you can be on your way to doing awesome things!
The Think Dirty App was created out of a project from a woman who had a family history of cancer, and wanted to get to the bottom of toxic ingredients in cosmetic and personal care products.
Think Dirty allows the user to scan any barcode, and if the product is in the Think Dirty database, it will output a Think Dirty score. The lower the score, like 0, 1 or 2, the cleaner the product is. It gives you a run down of every ingredient and why it is either "dirty" or clean. A high score like 8, 9, or 10 means the product is dirty. It contains toxins or chemicals known to be endocrine disruptors. It will provide recommended products if the one you've scanned came back dirty.
So the next time you're at the store and you can't decide if something is "all-natural" or "clean", download this app, scan the barcode, and be empowered with the truth!
This app is very similar to Think Dirty. You have the ability to scan products and view a rating. Careful not to confuse this rating with Think Dirty's. The Good Guide gives a high rating for good products. We found there are not as many products listed with the Good Guide app compared to Think Dirty, and the scanner itself is a bit harder to use for some reason. But nonetheless, this app provides great info to the consumer when buying products.
This one pertains to your health. It has a similar concept in that you can scan a food item's barcode, and it will give you a health rating. It also provides alternative snacks that are much healthier. I suppose, if you're scanning a bag of Cheetos, chances are, you know it's not good for you, but at least you'll get alternative snacks that are rated healthier!
They also have a health tracker section where you can count calorie intake. One of the best parts is the healthy recipes section. Search for tons of delicious recipes all while staying healthy!
Stay happy, healthy and keep living your beautiful life!
