GLRPPR Sector Resource: Good Stuff: A Behind the Scenes Look at the Things We Buy

Title:
Good Stuff: A Behind the Scenes Look at the Things We Buy

Abstract:
Produced in partnership with nine organizations as a hands-on companion to Worldwatch's annual State of the World report, Good Stuff traces what goes into the production, use, and disposal of 25 common consumer items, including compact discs, cell phones, baby goods, and chocolate. In addition to educating buyers about the environmental and social impacts of their purchases, the guide includes practical suggestions for living a "greener," healthier life. It also contains a fun "eco-IQ" quiz and a "challenge" page where readers agree to take three actions for a better environment. Available for download in part or in its entirety in PDF Format.
