  1. Hi, Josh,

    I’m going to be giving this a try. I don’t know if it will ultimately be frustrating if I can’t find a product that meets all my criteria; confusing, if there end up being too many choices among imperfect products; or enlightening, as I realize perhaps that some of my favorite products don’t meet nearly as many criteria as I anticipated they’d meet. Ultimately, the question for me is, do the ratings inspire the companies to up their game? I’d love to review any data on that that you have.

    Thanks for all your good work, Diane MacEachern, http://www.biggreenpurse.com

    Hi Diane,

    We really appreciate your giving the Transparency Toolbar a try. You raise excellent questions. To us, this about delivering information about the health, safety, green and ethical performance of products at the precise moment when people are deciding which products to “add to cart.”

    We’re listening closely to our community’s feedback to understand how best to deliver and display this information so that it’s clear, actionable and useful. We know we don’t have all the answers yet, but we feel that we’re making progress. The new personalization filters that accompany GoodGuide’s ratings are indicative of our commitment to this effort.

    You and I both know that it’s more than just people’s money at stake. They have every right to spend it in ways that support their and their family’s health and the health of the planet. If retailers and brands refuse or waiver in their willingness to disclose such information, then we’ll step in to fill the gap and continue to do our best to get it right.

    We welcome your feedback as we go forward. Keep up the great work on your end too!

    Josh
