Title: Natural Resources Defense Council: Smarter Living
Url: http://www.nrdc.org/living/
Publisher: Natural Resources Defense Council
Description: These days more consumers want to buy smarter and greener, and they also wish to make informed decisions about the items they are purchasing. Environmental degradation is a concern, as is personal health, sustainable foodstuffs, and so on. The National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has assembled this collection of resources for smarter living, and they include tips on healthy lunches, eating local, controlling energy costs, and environmentally friendly flea and tick treatments for pets. One of the true highlights here is the "Chemical Index" section. Here visitors can find out which chemicals are commonly used in everyday products, including shower curtains, shoe polishes, and insulation materials. The site also includes some "How to" and "Top Ten" lists that cover topics like the most energy efficient laptops and "greening" your wardrobe.
