AUG Living Goods Program

This mobile phone app stole the show at this year's Greener Gadgets Conference in New York. AUG Living Goods is incredibly useful for the eco-conscious foodie: Take it with you to the grocery store, scan any product's barcode, and the Living Goods Program will automatically give you information on its producer, how far the food has traveled, whether it's in season, historical pricing, detailed consumer ratings and even your own purchasing history.
