Cutting Through the Lies


If you're like many treehuggers, you want as much information about your food, building materials, clothing, furniture, and everything else as possible. So when every product from lumber to chicken started having labels like "Forest Stewardship Council Certified" and "cage free", you had to be excited. Unfortunately, not all labels are created equal; Some stretch the truth, and others outright fake it. For your sanity, is the online clearinghouse and fact-checker for all "green label" claims. With search capabilities, you can easily check out any suspicious claims before you buy. Or, if you're in a more news-reading mood, they have monthly features and headlines scoured from around the web relating to environmental and food-quality standards and labels. If you think information is power, then this is a great place to recharge.
