Things to consider when buying green or from social responsible companies:
How a company designs, sources, produces, and distributes. Upstream and down stream factors. What sustainability training do they offer? Do they have a sustainability pledge? If so, what is it? What is the minimum age of their overseas’ worker? Does their building have LEED’s certification? What causes does it give its one percent to? Environmental issues, human rights issues, public health and safety? How does it help the community in which it operates? How does it treat its employees? Check the articles of incorporation to see what it says its commitment to these issues.
