Commerce With A Conscience

Commcerewc.jpg

Great idea and seems to be pretty well stocked, Commerce With A Conscience allows you to sort goods (mostly clothing and accessories) by ethical attribute.

There are many ways that a product can be socially responsible. Along with more obvious criteria like eco-friendly materials and ethical manufacturing practices, there is also how well an item is made, and how long it will last. The goods featured on this site run the gamut. While some are organic and sweatshop-free, others are so high-quality that they’ll never need replacing (there are even a few to which all three traits apply).

Graffiti Analysis is an extensive ongoing study in the motion of graffiti. Custom software designed for graffiti writers creates visualizations of the often unseen motion involved in the creation of a tag. Motion data is recorded, analyzed and archived in a free and open database, where writers can share analytical representations of their hand styles

BrandKarma

Brandkarma’s mission is simple: To help everyone make better brand choices and influence brand behavior for good.  It was dreamed up by my friend Craig Davis.  Early on I agreed to join as an advisor as I was encouraged an inspired by what he’s aiming to do. I do think this is the start of something big and important (this is just the beta version).  Follow them on Twitter and join the movement.

The website feeds in news stories about brands but essentially relies on the input of its users to rate how well brands are performing. Rankings from the perspectives of the customers of the company, employees, suppliers, investors, and of how the brand is performing environmentally are all featured.
