HOW TO: Use the Web for Socially Responsible Shopping

by SteveBayle on January 2, 2010

Excellent listings of various socially responsible listings sites on Mashable

9 sites are listed and annotated.

The idea of “ethical consumerism” or “conscious consuming” is a social movement based around the idea that people should be cognizant of the impact their purchases have on the environment and the health and well-being of the people involved in making those products. It’s very hard to be an ethical consumer if you aren’t armed with information about the products you buy, however. Who makes those products? Where did they come from? What sort of social or environmental impact does the company have?

The comments section is well worth perusing for a set of additional sites of interest.
