According to the latest research, the average American family spends nearly $22,000 a year on goods and services—that's 22,000 votes for the world you want to live in. Do you want to ensure your money is supporting companies who work to make the world a better place, or risk its going to corporations who make their decisions based solely on the bottom line?

The Better World Shopping Guide is the only comprehensive guide for socially and environmentally responsible consumers. This perennial bestseller rates every product on the shelf from A to F so you can quickly tell the "good guys" from the "bad guys"—turning your shopping list into a powerful tool to change the world. Drawing on decades of meticulous research, this completely revised and updated fourth edition will help you find out which companies actually "walk the talk" when it comes to:

  • Environmental sustainability
  • Human rights
  • Community involvement
  • Animal protection
  • Social justice
