With the proliferation of products, information, and global challenges, we need more tools to help us in our quests to become conscientious citizens and engaged changemakers. Fortunately, websites and smartphone apps focused on making more ethical choices are multiplying.

From apps that rate products based on their social and environmental impacts, to ones that can help us track choices that reflect our values, to those that offer information and tips for choices that are more just, humane, and sustainable, there are an increasing number of apps that can help us make choices that do more good and less harm for people, animals, and the earth.

Check out our new Pinterest board to find suggested apps for a better world and take a few minutes to download those that best fit your needs and values.
