Find Good Consumer Goods on Good Guide

Image of GoodGuide logo.Consumers vote with their dollar, but sometimes it’s hard to know what, exactly you’re voting for. Does a product test on animals? Was this phone made by slave labor in China? Does this dress come from an unsafe factory? Is the process which makes this food actually killing biodiversity?

One website, GoodGuide, aims to help inform consumers about the items they purchase. The idea is ingenious: If people support companies with transparent and ethical products, it will become unprofitable over time to create products with harmful or unethical sources.

From the GoodGuide website:
