ProductBio is a new online service that allows businesses to find the most green, ethical, local or sustainable suppliers of whatever material they need.

Whether its for moral reasons, internal incentives, or just budget concerns that come from dealing with disposing of harmful chemicals, many businesses and public institutions have stepped up their efforts to buy sustainable goods and supplies.

ProductBio is building a tool that simplifies that process for such institutions, collecting data on the materials and supply chain involved in thousands of products. In addition to cutting out much of the research involved in finding the right balance between cost and sustainability, ProductBio’s platform automatically compiles sustainability reports for those users who need to prove that they’re supporting products that are made ethically without damaging the environment.
