Show Indie Hackers: Platar — Shop Ethically

Hello! I've just launched Platar, a browser extension to shop by your ethics. Nobody has the time to research every company you buy products from, so Platar is an unbiased platform that has lists of user campaigns you can choose to follow and within those all the brands that don't align with them. I want Platar to be a place where movements to encourage companies to make positive changes start. Please let me know if you have any feedback or questions! http://getplatar.com/

    Thanks for sharing!

    Although not a pain-point for me, I'm consistently amazed at the amount of people looking for ethical shopping solutions. Hopefully this helps!

      I sure hope so! It has the full ability to track boycotted items and give recommendations in its current state. And I've prepopulated a host of the most popular campaigns out there. The only thing I need now is for some advocacy groups to get onboard and maintain/update their campaigns.
