Caveat Emptor: a new wiki  
A friend and I have just started a project called Caveat Emptor. It's a wiki with the purpose of informing the public about more conscientious consumption--reducing it as a whole, but also focusing on socially aware and green living. In today's market, buyers should be aware of how their purchases and waste impact people and the Earth.

Since it's a wiki, anyone can write an article, and we need more content! Most of the articles are just a sentence and a link so far, if that. You can add articles or edit existing ones. We're looking for green/sweatshop-free businesses, organizations, concepts, books, films, and news. If you've never worked with a wiki before, check out here and here to get started.

Thanks!

added stuff to it
I'm not all that good with wikis but I added some ideas... some students of mine created a website re: anti-sweatshop work as part of a class with me last january: http://angel.soka.edu/AngelUploads/Content/Learning_cluster_jspady/_team/Web_Team/SweatedOut/index.htm

Maybe you or others will find useful stuff there.
