Better World Shopping Guide [Giveaway]

Better-world-shopper Leave a comment below through the end of Friday, October 1, 2010, to be considered for this random book giveaway.*

If you like to be told how to spend your money, there's a new guide that may be of assistance, The Better World Shopping Guide, which we received from New Society Publishers.  The average consumer spends something like $18,000 per year on goods and services and may not know how to spend that money wisely.  The Better World Shopping Guide incorporates over 5,000 hours of research and, using report cards on thousands of companies, rates every product on the book shelf from A to F. 

For example, if you need a hotel, the guide gives an A to Kimpton Hotels and a D to Westin.  If you need vitamins, the guide gives an A- to Spectrum and an F to Centrum.  Or, if you need paper, the guide gives an A to New Leaf and an F to Mead.

Now in its third edition, The Better World Shopping Guide helps consumers separate regular companies from those that work hard on issues such as human rights, environment, animal protection, community involvement, and social justice.  

If you could use a little help deciding which companies are the greenest overall, make sure to grab a copy of The Better World Shopping Guide on Amazon.
