GoodGuide looks great — it’s a database of products (mostly bathroom and kitchen stuff for now, but presumably expanding over time) connected to a deep well of information about supply chains and environmental impact. Products all get a score, 0-10. I love the idea of being able to instantly query this site from the grocery store via, say, an iPhone app.

And yo, this is the kind of project a news organization could/should have done. It’s all about context!
