Being a Green Consumer Just Got a Little Easier

November 16, 2008

Have you ever wondered if your sunscreen contains a toxic chemical? Or been concerned about the social impact of your shampoo? Or the environmental impact of your dish soap? 

If you have, you may also have been overwhelmed by the prospect of actually doing the research on the product and the company that makes it to make a truly informed decision. Enter the GoodGuide. The GoodGuide, though currently in beta, has already rated over 65,000 products, including personal care and household chemical products, using 600 criteria related to health hazards, environmental performance, and social issues. 

GoodGuide allows you to search or browse through the products, create a shopping list, and send the list to your phone, making your shopping trip a socially-responsible breeze.
