Just like you, at TradeMade we are always interested in finding new ways to be more engaged and informed. So, we put together this list of our favorite apps that we rely on to stay awake.

1. TradeMade – A Trade and Barter App with a Social and Environmental Cause.

TradeMade: Before you choose to buy new, first look to your fellow neighbors and community members. There is no better way to reject consumerism and buy-new culture than choosing not to purchase new items at all, especially when you can get the items from someone for free. TradeMade connects you with a vast network of traders who are all interested in giving to get, no money involved. If you don’t have items, don’t worry, you can even trade services!

3. Buycott – Be Informed

4. Indivisible Guide – Be Engaged

For political engagement, this app is bar none the best in the game. Using geolocation, the Indivisible app provides a list of your political representatives and their voting history–it’s update on a daily basis. And, the app allows you to connect with and follow the activity of grassroots organizations in your area. If you want to know about protests, gatherings, and other events before you see them marching in the street, this app is for you.

5. Environmental Working Group – A Healthy Living App

Like Buycott, this app also allows you to scan products to get information about how a product was made and the company that made it. The main difference between the Healthy Living App and Buycott is that this app has a more extensive database for environmental related issues.
