Buycott helps you to organize your everyday consumer spending so that it reflects your principles. The app includes a barcode scanner which lets you know if you’re boycotting or supporting the product’s manufacturer and parent company.
To stop supporting Israeli occupation and the repeated genocidal massacres against the Palestinian people, there are two boycott campaigns you should join in the app:
- Long Live Palestine - Boycott Israel (International brands which actively support the Israeli occupation and Israeli military)
- Avoid Israeli Settlement Products (Products manufactured in Israeli settlements built on stolen Palestinian land. These settlements are considered illegal under international law, and they support Israeli military occupation)
I live under Israeli occupation and I am still able to buy from brands that don’t support it. So if you live elsewhere, you have no excuse.
The app includes many other campaigns including boycotting products by Nestle, Unilever and Coca Cola, which contribute to human rights violations around the world. You can choose whichever campaigns you wish to join or create your own campaign.
If you don’t want to use the app for some reason, then at least check the barcode number. Any number that starts with 729 is made in Israel. Although many Israeli products don’t start with 729. But you’ll be able to screen the majority of them.
