The Spend Consciously is pretty darn excited to kick off 2015 at CES in Las Vegas this week as we look forward to making this year even better than 2014.
During the show, you will definitely want to stop by and say hi, as it is your first chance to demo our next product, Eye$pend. Like our first product, BuyPartisan, Eye$pend is a mobile app. Unlike BuyPartisan, it will allow you to see if your buying, investing, and donating match your values (BuyPartisan will stick to just consumer purchases).
The positive effect Eye$pend will have on our consumption habits is potentially huge. That might sound like a heaping spoonful of hyperbole left over from the holidays, but consider this:
Instead of just hoping that at least a small portion of your money is going towards causes you believe it (mostly by donating directly to specific non-profits you pick), you will know that all of your money is aligned with your values, from the board of directors on down. If it doesn’t, you will be able to find companies and organizations that do, thus putting quite a bit of power back in the hands “of the people.”
When you consider that our overall mission is to make corporations more accountable and transparent, Eye$pend is a huge step forward and a great app for anyone who cares about this world we live in.
Of course, if you haven’t had the chance to try out the BuyPartisan app, CES is a great opportunity to get to know us better. We’ll have phones available, pre-loaded with BuyPartisan, so you can scan retail and grocery items and find out which political parties the board, C-suite, and employees support. It might be quite eye-opening!
We’ll also have some awesome t-shirts, tote bags and postcards to give away. If are lucky enough to get a t-shirt (very limited availability), hold on to it so when we are huge, you can say, “I knew them way back when!” Also, those tote bags will come in handy as you haul swag all over the convention floor, so at the very least, swing by and snag a bag.
You can find us at Booth #75453 at the Sands Expo and the Venetian. See you soon!
