Ratings for Green Products

When I first heard about GoodGuide.com I thought, what a brilliant idea. It's a user-friendly, consumer website with product ratings for toys, personal care products and household chemicals. What's special is that the ratings are based on health, environmental and social factors that, surprisingly, companies often don't like to hype (like carcinogens in shampoo and cute lead-laced bath toys). Some of the ratings are surprising, like Whole Foods' products aren't all they're cracked up to be because of their environmental record, and that cheap Suave shampoo may not be a bad option after all.
