SweetScore Recommends - Ethical Company Reviews

No company is perfect and most companies do everything they can to suppress that fact, while New Belgium is the first to admit what they’re doing wrong in big bold red letters (seriously) -- along with how they want to fix it.

Their transparency on all levels of their business is unparalleled to any other I assessed, as even a quick look at their Sustainability report on their website attests.

They also deserve recognition for:

-- leading in all of the places that green brewers can;

-- being female inclusive (if not centric) from their beginning;

-- promoting positive communities centered around the needs of the people in them -- with biking as an organizational structure for that.

Featured Company Take Action - #Real Pro-Life Shopping Guide

It goes without saying that places that support the abortion rights of their citizens are Real Pro-Life.

In this guide, we provide those who want to support abortion rights through their shopping a list of leading products from companies headquartered in US states that are trampling on the reporducitve rights of men and women under the false claim of being "Pro-Life."

Places

Featured Country - Norway

Turns out that the people in Norway are just as lovely as its fjords. Like many of its Scandinavian neighbors, Norway has absolutely remarkable numbers on everything from Environmental Protection to Women's Rights. Norwegians have strived to build a society in which everyone is protected and cared for, and that's been reflected in the remarkable freedoms all of their citizens enjoy.

Environmental Protections - 8 out of 10

Women's Equality and Reproductive Rights - 9 out of 10

LGBTQ+ Equality Protections - 10 out of 10

Protection of the Press and Corruption Free Governance  (our Just and Civil Society Issue) - 9 out of 10

Great Trading Partner to the US - 10 out of 10

See Norwegian Companies you can support now on our Norway page.

Featured State - Georgia

It's just not so good these days in Georgia, is it?

Voted overwhelmingly for Trump - and thus owns responsibility for the US exit from the Paris Climate accord, among other misdeeds by the current administration.

And has now passed an anti-abortion law trampling on the human rights of its citizens, prompting calls for boycotts of the state by those who truly care about life and support abortion rights - people we call "Real Pro-Life".

See our Real Pro-Life Shopping Guide listing products from Coca-Cola and other Georgia based companies you may be reluctant to support.
