How can I compare green products to non green products to see how much of a difference they will make?

    I don’t know that there is a collective source for all products, but certain sectors or industries definitely provide their own resources. For example Green Batteries is a good place to check for (as the name implies) information on green batteries. TreeHugger is often a good resource as well, and Good Housekeeping recently released a green seal that might be helpful as well.

    Generally speaking though, you should be able to use your own common sense to figure out how much of an improvement a green product could be. Packaged, cut up vegetables from Chile, for example, are definitely going to be less eco-friendly than fresh carrots from your neighborhood farm stand. What it really comes down to is that it doesn’t necessarily matter “how big” of an impact something makes, just that it is in some way an improvement over the “traditional” alternative. You shouldn’t be concerned with levels of environmental efficiency at this point, as anything you can do to reduce your carbon footprint is going to bring long term gains to the world, especially if you convince your friends and family to do the same.
