What: The Budget Ecoist takes a look at the nonprofit group, Environmental Working Group’s website
The Lowdown: EWG states that its website’s purpose is to use the power of public information to protect public health and the environment. The website is a great resource for anyone concerned about the environment. They have a news section that pulls in current topics on the environment from several sources, as well as a great research section.
The Bottom Line: This site is indispensable for the great resources it provides links to such as 10 Everyday Pollution Solutions (easy things you can do TODAY with little or no budget!), National ########## of tap water quality report based on your zip code and a Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce (make yourself aware of which fruits and vegetables are most important to buy organic).
