I’m not talking good as in how well they work, I’m talking good as in "good for the environment, good for people, good for the world."
Well, in case you ever wondered how "good" your Wisk detergent actually is, now you can find out. Just go to www.goodguide.com and search for your favorite products. Just a few clicks and you’ll know that Wisk is actually the #3 most good laundry detergent!
Pretty impressive. Here’s some info from Good Guide’s website:

From what I can tell, Good Guide also users to create an account, share product info with friends and give their opinions on products.
Good Guide received a lot of attention at TechCunch50. Check it out and let us know what you think. I couldn’t find any of the Costco products I like to use. I guess I’ll go in and play around. Seems like a pretty cool site and a great idea.
Good job, Good Guide!
