Description

"Grass Commons, a 501(c)3 public interest charity, is building pipelines between those who can generate information about products and companies and those who can use that information to build a more sustainable economy and a better world.

Founders Ethan McCutchen and Lewis Hoffman, both accomplished software developers with extensive experience in large-scale web applications and database management, saw a gap between the information we need to shop ethically and the information we have when we shop. Grass Commons was formed to prove the Information Age consumer could do better.

Currently we’re focused on developing Wagn, a wiki which handles more structured data and more complex relationships than other wikis. We’re already using it to host Hooze, which has some product information. As Wagn matures, our attention is beginning to back to nurturing Hooze into a thriving community of people sharing their experience with different companies and products."
