Rate It Green just finished Phase I, which means registered members can submit ratings on the products in Rate It Green's free databases. We're not entirely convinced that the ratings will prove to be a useful resource, but the product search engine seems to work well... if you're trying to track down that elusive green product, it's worth a few clicks.

Check out the Rate It Green site, and let us know if you find this website -- or ratings in general -- helpful. We don't know what to think... it seems "green" encompasses so many different and sometimes competing meanings that any one rating system might gloss over too much complexity to be useful.
