I was thinking to myself that it would be handy to have some sort of pocket-sized almanac that you could carry around which had the names of all corporations who committed rights and environmental violations at home and abroad, so that one could take it shopping and buy accordingly.

Then I figured, such a thing must already exist. Does it?

It'd also be longer than your arm, I'm afraid. This race to the bottom atmosphere we've got going means even companies whose top echelons wouldn't WANT to do such things end up having to just to shave their margins down.

I think it would be easier to carry around an almanac of corporation who DON'T participate in bad stuff.

What about a compilation by year, and only with products that are available to consumers?

And just for my own curiousity, is there any such online listing, with good sources and all that jazz?
