Where do things come from? Sourcemap, a crowdsourced directory of supply chains and environmental footprints, attempts to provide that answer.
This unique web app allows users to create maps that track the trail of consumer products from their origin up to the purchase. Sourcemap provides users with a mound of information about products - from the product's comprising materials through to its impact on the environment. The website now hosts thousands of maps that track everything from furniture and clothing to electronics and food.
So the next time you shop for Nutella or your next laptop, check out Sourcemap to learn about the history behind the product. [Source: Sourcemap ]
