When you need to buy something, how do you know where to buy it from? Which suppliers are ethical, which ones say they are and which don’t even try?

Here are some suggestions – but please send us your ideas.


The talk “The Truth behind Fast Fashion” by Daphne Biliouri-Grant on 24 March revealed just how damaging the fashion industry is, contributing an extraordinary ten percent to global carbon emissions. The UK is one of the worst offenders.

Here are some tips and links from the talk including where to go for good quality second hand.


Does that skin cleanser contain microbeads? The beat the microbead app which will check for you before you buy.

Ethical Consumer Magazine is a great place to go before buying anything. From deodorants to dishwashers, and from milk to mobile phones, you can look up the most ethical companies to buy from. To fund all the research they do, there is a subscription charge if you want to use it to search – but the website is interesting even without the sub.
