Inspiration: We were inspired by the conscious capitalist movement and wanted to enable everyday shoppers to participate easier.

What it does: Our project is a Chrome extension that informs the user how ethical a company's practices are when shopping online. This is done with the click of one button.

How we built it: We used python scripts to webscrape the amazon product page for the company name which was then sent to out ethical score database to be displayed in the extension.

Challenges we ran into: The server we used to connect the python scripts to the plugin wouldn't work properly.

Accomplishments that we're proud of: We learnt a lot.

What we learned: How to do things.

What's next for Ethical Shopping Assistant Extension: Get the python and server to actually interface with each other.
