GoodGuide Scans

Here's an idea - use technology for information. However, there is nothing like have the right information at your fingertips just in time for Thanksgiving. Scan that can of green beans. Scan that bag of wild rice. Scan the whip cream for the pumpkin pie. Most of the barcode information has been scanned, tracked and logged into a super database, which your iPhone can look up to help you make good, healthy, environmental choices.

The free GoodGuide app is stupid simple. Just tap, scan, wait, and review the product ratings. The overall rating is accompanied by three categories of social, environmental and health ratings. Did I mention you don't necessarily need an iPhone to help your green conscience? You can also text "41411" saying "gguide shampoo" and you will be provided with information back indicating that Tom's of Maine, Burt's Bees, and Nuture My Body are the top 3 brands in that category.

Go GoodGuide! GoSustaino!
