About Finch

Finch educates people on the ins and outs of sustainability by decoding products' environmental and social impacts and turning those complex scientific facts into simple, actionable insights. Our proprietary rating system pinpoints the stuff you’re actually going to use, the stuff that doesn’t suck, and the stuff that’s better for the world around us, all in one place. We believe that understanding the science of sustainability gives control back to you as a citizen, not just as a consumer.

Before Finch, she worked in supply chain and sustainability at Unilever and then became Chief Operating Officer at Muuse, a startup that aims to mitigate single-use plastics in the to-go industry. Lizzie is on the Global Leadership Council at the Natural Resources Defense Council and was named Greenbiz’s 30 Under 30.
