High Street Shops Online

 

For all your online shopping we've found four well known High Street stores that appear to be paying a fairer amount of tax:


Debenhams
Everything from fashion to furniture.

John Lewis
Virtually everything that's available on Amazon with the exception of books.

Lush
An extensive range of handmade, cruelty-free cosmetics.

Next
Everything from evening wear to electricals.

 

Amazon marketplace

Our boycott is of Amazon products and does not extend to third parties selling on the Amazon marketplace. We do however recommend trying to search for the marketplace seller in order to try to buy from them direct where possible.
