Who Do You Think Are the Most Socially Responsible Companies?

When you're shopping or using a company's services, do you ever give a thought to whether or not they are a socially responsible organization? FreeShipping.org recently came out with a list of the top 40 socially responsible companies, and I think you may be surprised at some of the organizations that made the cut.

From Amazon putting its weight behind frustration-free packaging (they ban clamshell casings, wire ties and plastic bindings) to Zappos, who offers free lunches, life coaching, and no-charge vending machines to their employees, these are companies you can work for and shop from, guilt free. 

I was personally surprised to see Costco on the list, which has a unique focus on employee benefits. In the U.S., 85% of Costco employees enjoy health coverage, putting to shame the average of less than 50% covered at Target and Walmart.

Check out these 40 Socially Responsible Companies and tell me which ones you could've predicted...and which ones sort of shocked you.
