Product and Company Rating Systems

Alonovo: Intelligent Marketplace
This site allows users to register their personal value systems (how important various issues are on a scale of 1-5) to measure the social consciousness of each individual.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is a coalition effort launched in 2004 to protect the health of consumers and workers by securing the corporate, regulatory and legislative reforms necessary to eliminate dangerous chemicals from cosmetics and personal care products.
