Buyosphere: The Consumer Awareness Revolution

Welcome to the More Than Sound podcast.

This episode features a second excerpt from Daniel Goleman‘s conversation with Dara O’Rourke. By establishing a grading system which scores the health, environmental, and social impact of many products found on store shelves, O’Rourke’s program, Good Guide, makes it easier for consumers to make informed decisions about the products they buy.  As more consumers use the program, it’s providing clues about buying preferences which O’Rourke hopes can lead to changes in the marketplace.

Dara O’Rourke, On The Radical Horizon

Welcome to the More Than Sound podcast.

According to Dara O’Rourke, surveys have shown that up to 75 percent of americans consider themselves to be environmentalists, and, as Daniel Goleman learned while doing research for Ecological Intelligence, this increased consciousness amongst consumers can provide great opportunities for companies. But as O’Rourke discussed with Goleman for the audio feature The Radical Horizon, the way many companies are marketing their supposedly green products has made it difficult for consumers to really know what they might be buying. His program, GoodGuide, endeavors to make that easier.
