Greenwashing Detector Website

September 22, 2008

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the mountains of green products and brands hitting the store shelves? It can be hard to determine which products are really good for you and our environment and which are just hopping on the bandwagon… until these researchers decided to develop GoodGuide.com. This website has thousands of products rated by:

Health Performance

  • Cancer Effects
  • Reproductive & Developmental Effects
  • Short-Term Health Effects
  • Long-Term Health Effects
  • General Health & Safety

Environmental Performance

  • Toxic/Hazardous
  • Climate Change
  • Energy
  • Water

Social Performance

  • Philanthropy
  • Customer Satisfaction
  • Employees/Related Workers
  • Labor & Human Rights

This way, you can sort through all the products and get a thorough break down of what the best products are. I even looked up my arch nemesis, Clorox, because I’ve always been very skeptical of how “green” their Green Works products really are… and just as I suspected, they scored between 4.4-5.6 (out of 10) on various Green Works merchandise.

You can even filter searches by animal friendliness and health friendliness. Not to mention several Top Product lists, to ensure you’re getting the best eco-friendly and healthy products. Also, there’s an iPhone application coming out for them soon, for easy access while at the store!
