The National Geographic produces a wonderful online resource for green products. It tells you what to look for before buying everyday products. For each category, they list the Green Guide recommended product, the Greenest product, and the best value.
Must read are:
- The interactive coffee label decoder teaches us what the world certifications stand for
- With the trend toward bringing your lunch, it is best to know which plastic containers are the safest.
- The Baby Bottles Buying Guide recommends the Babylife Wee-Go Bottle. The BornFree Vented Glass Bottles are the greenest. Remark that they are both glass bottles and more expensive than the typical brands.
