Vote with Your Pocketbook

Ellis Jones writes a useful little book, The Better World Shopping Guide: Every Dollar Makes a Difference, 4th edition, 2012.  This shows, for many shopping categories, which companies are environmentally responsible and respect workers' rights.

Voting with our pocketbooks in such ways has long been a goal; this book (and website) ferrets out information to make it more possible.  The 4th edition paperback and Kindle data are as of July, 2012.  The website data is dated 2006.
