I love a good app, don't you? Especially when it helps me make hard decisions like what products to use and foods to buy. Labels can be so deceiving and these apps will help you determine what is ACTUALLY healthy and/or chemical free. Seriously lifesavers!
1. The Happy Cow
This app is great for finding vegan or vegetarian-friendly restaurants wherever you are. Its simple to use which is great for when you need to find options fast.
2. Is it Vegan?
This one is great when you come across a questionable food label. Some labels will not say "contains milk" when in fact, there are milk derivatives in certain foods. It can be super frustrating and confusing so having this app has been awesome. It also works on things like medications and product labels!
3. Think Dirty
I believe this app is fairly new and they are still adding to it but it is still such a great one! It actually rates products by number and colors on their toxicity levels and breaks down why they are toxic and what body systems they could effect. So many things that I thought were safe and healthy ended up in the red zone which was definitely a wake-up call to start checking ingredient labels more!
4. EWG's Healthy Living
This one sort of picks up the slack for the think dirty app. It seems to be a bit more updated and has more products already in its database. I love having both handy when I'm shopping because chances are one of the two apps will have info on the product I'm scanning.
Last but not least! This app is great for determining if certain products are cruelty-free. Some brands label it and some don't so it's always nice to know for sure if you are on the hunt for cruelty-free products.
This was a super short and sweet post but I hope these apps help you!! They have changed the way I shop and have really simplified things when trying to buy cleaner products!
Let me know if you get any of these apps or if you've already been using them! Do you use any others that aren't listed? Let me know!
Thanks for reading!
