Pesticides
Each year the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a national non-profit dedicated to using public information and education efforts to protect public health and the environment, analyzes the test results of pesticide residue on the most commonly available fruits and vegetables to determine which are the most and least contaminated.  The arguments in favor of organic foods extend far beyond personal health into considerations of global health and environmental responsibility, and the discussion of organic vs. local is a lively and important one.  However, when faced with a choice between buying organic vs. conventional produce, this list can serve as a useful guide.

Seafood
The Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI)'s Sustainable Seafood Initiative and the Responsibly Harvested Standard.  This branding program enables market differentiation of Gulf of Maine seafood products that meet important criteria around traceability and responsible harvest.
