Here is another helpful list from the folks at Co-op America.

1. Paint

Look for: Low or ideally, no-VOC paint.

2. Paper

Look for: Paper products with a high post-consumer recycled content.

3. Light bulbs

Look for: Compact fluorescents.

4. Appliances

Look for: Appliances with the Energy Star label.

5. Fruits and Vegetables
