The Better World Shopping Guide: 7th Edition

Every Dollar Makes a Difference

EVERY DOLLAR IS A VOTE. MAKE YOURS COUNT.

Every dollar we spend has the potential to create social and environmental change. In fact, it already has. The world that exists today is in large part a result of our purchasing decisions.

Now in its seventh edition, The Better World Shopping Guide continues to be the gold standard for socially and environmentally responsible consumers. Pick-up the seventh edition of this perennial bestseller and find out which companies actually "walk the talk" when it comes to:

  • Environmental sustainability and climate change
  • Human rights
  • Community involvement
  • Animal protection
  • Social justice

From cereal to computers, meat alternatives to outdoor gear, and pet care to toys, check the rating before you buy. Drawing on decades of research, this comprehensive resource rates hundreds of brands, products, and services from A to F so you can quickly tell the "good guys" from the "bad guys" – turning your shopping list into a powerful tool for positive change.

  • 6000+ hours of research
  • 2000+ companies evaluated
  • 70+ product categories
  • 50+ reliable sources
  • 5 essential issues
  • 1 report card

Small enough to fit in a back pocket or handbag, easy to use, and covering more brands than ever, The Better World Shopping Guide helps you reward companies who are doing good, penalize those involved in destructive activities, and change the world as you shop!
