Hi guys,
Great job, lots of good tips! 
I do have a problem with one tiny thing thing, you said "If I can't read it I won't buy it" I disagree with this. I understand the thought behind it: "quick decision-making rule of thumb" but this strategy is not ideal... best to educate ourselves (we need to fight the ignorance and "laziness" trend that allows for greenwashing to even exist), know what are the main things to avoid (you do a great job listing some of these) and then work up from there if a much better approach! I hope you don't mind me commenting, but it's an important point, if you don't know something, research it, don't just blank avoid it...
