For eating sustainably
▪ How Good helps shoppers make choices on the fly about the food they’re buying. The app rates food products on 60 indicators of sustainability. Its database of more than 200,000 different products draws on information from 350 organizations, including the Rainforest Alliance and Fair Trade USA.
▪ Seafood Watch invites you to check on the sustainability of any seafood you’re about to order at a market or restaurant. Developed by the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the app gives its best ranking to seafood that’s fished, farmed, and transported in environmentally friendly ways, and also recommends conscientious fishmongers and restaurants.
▪ GoodGuide rates foods based on their nutritional value, potential health hazards, and ethics of production, including environmental impact. It also rates products such as household cleaners. Bar-code scanning eases the trouble of calling up the ratings.
