Daniel Goleman’s the author of Emotional Intelligence has written his new book called Ecological Intelligence. He discusses how consumers can change the world through their ‘ecological intelligence’ by making environmentally and socially conscious purchasing decisions. He reviews various sites such as Good Guide and Skin Deep that help educate consumers about the products we purchase. Not only which products are good for us but products that are good for the environment and made sustainably. He also discusses ‘radical transparency’ which encourages companies to disclose their products contents and manufacturing practises. A good book for someone who is new to the ‘green’ movement.
Daniel Goleman did a 20 minute interview with Bill Moyers that provides a nice overview of his book.
