      @Fergus, independent research comes with a price, funding this plugins through advertising or commissions on sale would in the long therm destroy the integrity or reliability of the plugin, if you value this kind of info you should be ok to pay 1$ for it. Congrats guys, great project, great campaign!

      Great news.. I wish you every success. Just a quick comment - longer term I hope you are able to offer this as a free plugin. I'm not sure how you might finance this - perhaps a small revenue from products you give refer customers to as ethical alternatives?

      if each backer increases their pledge by $1.17, Impakt will be a successful Kickstarter! GO!! I Increased mine by $10.

      What a cool idea. I have gone through various stages of trying to be more active in my shopping choices but always run into roadblocks, especially as more of my shopping has moved online and is squeezed into minimal time slots. This should really help. Thank you.

      Very interesting, potentially high-impact idea! Can you say more about your data sources? (I'm in the field so feel free to use specific terms). The only comprehensive metric I've seen is the Future-Fit Business Benchmark (as it aggregates many other global metrics and reporting tools) which if applied universally would solve for what you describe here, but it's still only used by a small handful of companies and even those aren't yet making all data public. I'd be keen to understand more how you'll address this. It's a great idea if you can get robust data in an automated way--something a lot of us are pushing for!

      Congratulations guys, you've created a product that is not only utilitarian, but conscious minded and that will make the world a better place as well! You should be very proud, because we certainly are.

      I need this in my life. I want to be a more ethical and conscious consumer, but I just don't have the time to do the research. This will make it so much easier for my economic voice to match my actual thoughts and beliefs.

      Finally a tool to curate Amazon and other sites to what is important to US! This is groundbreaking and will allow us ALL to make a difference now!

      This can (and hopefully will) be used in so so many ways. It's going to be fantastic! Here's to the "money-where-our-mouths-are" generation!
