Four Simple Ways to Make a Difference with Your Dollars

By Eliza Bloom

Did you know that even the brand of toothpaste you buy can take the world closer to -- or further from -- peace? It's true: Every dollar you spend can make a difference. But it takes time to sift through all the news reports, advertising messages and public relations campaigns to figure out whether a company deserves your dough.

The following web sites are designed to help you quickly and easily determine whether the companies you do business with are socially and environmentally responsible.

Responsible Shopper
Here, you can search for your favorite stores and find out the lowdown on their social and environmental performance. The Responsible Shopper database features 350 company profiles, including information from the companies themselves as well as private and governmental organizations, corporate watch dog organizations, consumer organizations, newspaper and magazine articles and news wire stories.

Green Pages
Green Pages Online provides information on 2,000 qualified "green companies," each of which has made a commitment to environmental and social responsibility. Each business listed here has undergone a rigorous screening process.

Social Funds
This site provides information on responsible investing including mutual funds and community investments (addressing the financial needs of low income and under-served communities), as well as how shareholders can actively shape social policies of businesses. It's pretty comprehensive: You'll find more than 10,000 pages of information on SRI mutual funds, corporate research, shareowner actions and daily social investment news.

Social Investment Forum
More contacts and resources on socially responsible investing. If you're new to SRI, start with the site's introduction.
