Daniel Goleman, author of the immensly popular 'Emotional Intelligence', has written a new book. After introducing 'EQ' ( and nothing was ever the same ) and 'Social Intelligence' he now comes up with " Ecological Intelligence". This book comes as a true gift to me as I have been struggling with my consumer behaviour since I started reading on how big industry effects the world's natural ressources and labour all over the world.  

His book is on how we can adjust our buying behaviour into making the world a better and greener place. And gives answers to questions like if glass bottles are really better for the environment than plastic ones and if your organic cotton T-shirt is as eco-friendly as it sounds...Looks like Goleman is also a good entrepreneur as he publishes this book in full "ecomania".  Luckely Goleman also warns for those companies who put on an eco-green sticker only to sell more.

I am hoping that Goleman's book will effect a lot of people and that again, nothing will ever be the same . I am definitely going to read it and post a lot about it here. I am searching for a European website that evaluates a big range of products on their sustainability and rates these products if they are safe, green and healthy. 
Anyone who can help me on that? A website like this one

  1. Hello,

    I thought you might also be interested in the Ecological Awareness dialogues between Goleman and Dara O'Rourke (the founder of with Greg Norris, and with Michael Lerner (the Lerner dialogue does have a small discussion about differences in European and American chemical testing standards). They and samples of them are available at
