Our goal at Leaf Score is to highlight products that are healthy for you and healthy for the planet. To that end, we created the rating system you see outlined below. We rate all the products in the LeafScore directory with our leaf rating system. If a product appears on this site, it is trustworthy and sustainably made with as little environmental impact as possible, however, some products are more pristine than others and budget plays a role as well. Where information is available, we factor in the carbon emissions and other climate impacts associated with the production and operation of a product.
