Software for good

A few years ago we were thinking about a consumer product that encapsulated all the stuff you had to think about when making a purchase: is it ethically made, does it harm the planet, does it contain peanuts or seafood, were there any endangered species involved, does it contain a carcinogen, will it make me fat, … It’d be driven by multiple sources of reliable data about what goes into all the products that are on the shelves.

Now, someone has made significant progress to the back end machinery, by making it possible for business to integrate this sort of analysis into their supply chain. Nice.
