Ecolect.net may be one of my favorite new green web sites. It was created by and for green designers and hosts over 1,000 green products. But don't expect to get admitted into the database just because your product is "recyclable." Ecolect promises to be a greenwashing-free zone and boasts a "nutritional label" for each product, disclosing exactly why the product can be considered "green."
I got a few minutes to talk to Matt Grigsby, founder and CEO of Ecolect, at the Greener Gadgets summit. He explains the need for a higher standard for product design that actively encourages sustainability from inception to disposal of the product.
