Guide to this site

This site is the main home and information source for the Green Stars Project. The goal of the project is to encourage you, the reader, to consider the social and environmental impact of the products and services you use by rating them on a scale of 1 to 5 green stars. The reviews should be posted on any website that you normally use (Amazon, Yelp, Google, TripAdvisor, etc.) so that the green star rating will be visible alongside the conventional gold star rating.  ( *****  = quality and price ; *****  = social and environmental impact)

The Green Stars Project (GSP) is a simple idea for dealing with unethical corporate practices by impacting companies at their most sensitive point: their revenue.

You are welcome to post a review as a comment here, but the key is to post your reviews on commercial sites such as those listed above so that they reach the widest possible audience. The goal is to increase awareness on the social and environmental impact of our choices as consumers and to discourage corporate practices that are detrimental to our planet and society.

Once the idea gains traction we will contact internet retailers (like Amazon) and review sites (like Yelp) to formally instate a green star rating scale.

For information about the idea, start with About and also take a look at FAQs. If you want to see what a typical green star review looks like, go to Example Reviews or just take a look at the posts below. Thanks for visiting!
