Greenhouse is a free browser extension for Chrome, Safari, and Firefox that exposes the role money plays in Congress. Displays on any web page detailed campaign contribution data for every Senator and Representative, including total amount received and breakdown by industry and by size of donation. Puts vital data where it’s most relevant so you can discover the real impact of money on our political system. It works by highlighting the names of members of Congress on any webpage - just hover your mouse over the names, and popup box will open that contains the industry donation breakdown and other statistics. Greenhouse was created by me alone, and has received 300,000 views to the site and over 100,000 downloads in the first three months. It has been featured on the Washington Post, Business Insider, VICE, Yahoo! Tech, Engadget, Boingboing, Fast Company, ArsTechnica, Bill Moyers, BBC World Radio, Fusion Live TV, Daily Dot, Elite Daily, and been written about in languages like Greek, Hungarian, Chinese, Thai, Arabic, and many others.
