(NaturalNews) Buycott is a word that defined as "the opposite of boycott," so rather than focus on the negative act of boycotting a company, it seems the Buycott folks want you to Buycott a company. What does that mean exactly?

Buycotting a company means to support a company that has principles in line with yours. How do you support a company? You buy their products. On the same token, you can stop buying products from companies that have practices that are not inline with your principles and ethics.

There's more information in a barcode than meets the eye

When using the Buycott app, which is currently available in the iTuness App Store (with the Android version coming soon), it will first determine the brand the product belongs to. With that it will look up information about the companies that own the brand, and the people that own the companies.

You will have previously joined "buycott campaigns" that support your beliefs, or "boycott campaigns" that do not. Now, if a product is found to be tied to a company or individual that supports or conflicts with your beliefs, you will be alerted.

Example campaigns and categories

There are campaign categories on a variety of hot topics which include animal welfare, civil rights, education, food, gay rights, health, women's rights, and much more.

Some of the top campaigns right now include "Say No to GMO - Monsanto Products Boycott," "Say No to Monsanto," and "Demand GMO Labeling."

Rise in popularity has slowed things down temporarily

This app, created by 26-year-old Los Angeles programmer Ivan Pardo, has went viral and is extremely popular among the masses. Could this mean the beginning of the end of Monsanto? We'll soon see.

The app's quick rise in popularity has caused server crashes and app slow downs but it seems they are working on resolving those issues rather quickly.
