The Good Guide

Ecotot: Good Guide

What once started out as a research project at UC Berkeley, the Good Guide is now a valuable parent resource as it provides ratings on various household products, with a focus on baby gear. What's so special about the Good Guide? It gives products an overall rating and then breaks it down into three different ratings: health performance, environmental performance and social performance.


If you can't decide on which diaper cream to buy, check out the Good Guide to see what gets the best ratings. If you like to get into the nitty gritty, you can investigate which organizations provide product certifications and listings, examine cancer effects, toxicity and hazardous ratings, water and energy usage during manufacturing. As the site grows, so will the products and public reviews.
