I love this little book! It is a consumer shopping guide based on the premise that "every dollar you spend is a vote for the world you want to live in!"
The author, Ellis Jones is described as "a scholar of social responsibility, global citizenship and everyday activism". He has researched over 1,000 companies, and based on their record of human rights, the environment, animal protection, community involvement, and social justice, has graded them all from A through F, within 75 product categories ranging from appliances and hardware, to chocolate, and wine.
This book is a great reference for whatever one is planning to purchase. I carry it with me everywhere now and it makes me feel better to know that the majority of the consumer choices I make are supporting the values that I believe in.
