I'm curious to see what kind of green groups, organizations and resources you all use, belong to and donate to.  Mine are:

Natural News
Organic Consumer Assocation
Environmental Working Group (EWG)
Skin Deep Cosmetic Database

I get the Natural News newsletter every day.  Packed full of articles for living a healthy, natural life.  It's also full of political articles, but you dont' have to read them.
I donate to the Organic Consumer Association.  I think they're one of the few watchdogs keeping the USDA organic standards in place, which is so important in the face of Monsanto chicanery.
The EGW puts out guides on cosmetics, sunscreens, cleaners, etc.  on what's toxic and what's not.
I frequently use the Cosmetic Database to check out ingredients in lotions, makeup, soaps, etc.  Again to see what's harmful and the greenest brands to use.

How about the rest of you?  Do you use these and do you have any other good sites, organizations, etc. to share?

We don't donate at this time, we do support and reference the sites to other people, especially EWG.
