Remember you read it here first. GoodGuide.com is a website that rates products that are good for you. GoodGuide's mission is to help you find safe, healthy, and green products that are better for you and the planet. You can do a search for your favorite product and then determine how good it is. Did you know that Johnson & Johnson Baby Shampoo, the most popular selling product, has a carcinogen in it? It is not intentional but is a byproduct of their production process.
This company uses scientific data to rate products. I was amazed to search for products that I use like deodorant, laundry soap and perfume. You can create a shopping list with alternative products (just in case your local Target doesn't carry your target product). While you are out shopping you can also text the UPC code to GoodGuide and receive a text back. Pretty Cool! They will also be launching an iPhone app in a few weeks. (I wish I had an iPhone to test it.)
