Example Reviews

We will highlight reviews over time to serve as examples of the way we review social and environmental impact to come up with a green star rating. In the meantime you can find a selection of reviews that we’ve posted on Amazon here.

Bear in mind that the whole point of the Green Star Reviews Project is that everyone has a voice, so there’s no set template to follow, as long as your green star rating is based on some aspect(s) of social and environmental impact.

  1. I just read through the entire Nestle review on this page and it was so eye-opening for me. Trying to make a profit is one thing, but straight up lying to consumers and misrepresenting their values is gross. Thanks for this insight.

    1. Thanks Lyz! I see that Kit Kat is being heavily advertised at the moment, with retro 80s ads. Thanks for taking the time to read it and see that there’s often a dark side to these best-selling products besides the image presented in ads. Have a good one 💚

  2. This is a great idea, I’ll incorporate the green star rating in my reviews in google etc. as a guide. Still really new to this, been trying to support local and green products for just about 5 or 6 years now
