Thank you Consumer Reports
Consumer Reports was founded in 1936 at a time when consumers had very few options to gauge the value, quality, or authenticity of goods and services. It was an era of unfettered advertising claims, rapid technological progress, and patchwork regulations--so CR was created to equip people with the credible, trustworthy information they needed to make informed choices. Over time, CR's findings shaped purchasing decisions, and regulators and manufacturers began to heed our voice and the needs and interests of consumers.
CR remains a trusted source because our rigorous, independent testing and research still creates a marketplace built on credible information, greater transparency, and fairness. Our investigative journalism, advocacy, and digital testing empower consumers, inform people's purchasing decisions, influence businesses to improve the products and services they deliver, and strengthen norms, laws, and regulations through science, evidence, and data.
Today, CR is still an independent nonprofit with more than 6 million members who fight with their voices and choices for a fair and just marketplace--one that is responsive and resilient enough to deliver trust to consumers no matter what changes come their way.
