    The Ethical Consumer writers outline below what they'd like to see happen in the coming year but what would you like to see?

    Heather Webb would like to see the living wage being adopted by all major companies.

    Jane Turner hopes that the computer industry can follow the example set this year in the mobile phone industry and develop a truly ethical brand like the Fairphone.

    Jo Long would like to see more independent local businesses getting the Fair Tax Mark and to see the government and local authorities formally adopting the principles behind the Fair Tax Mark into their procurement policies.

    Michael Wignal would like to see Google taxed on UK profits.

    Rob Harrison would like to see a a new Union of Co-op Bank Customers to keep the unique institution on an ethical track.

    Simon Birch wants people to understand that cheap clothing kills.

    Tim Hunt would like to see 100,000 people pledge to boycott Amazon.

    I would like to see a guide to fast food restaurants, comparing places such as McDonalds, KFC, Subway, Pizza Hut, Dominoes etc. It would also be good to see if there are any less well know ones which have good ethics. It is hard to judge, because based of the ethiscores they look okay (I think Mcdonalds has about 10).

    AWARENESS throughout all Spritual groups on these ethical issues. A linking, like a gentle T'ai Chi Qi Gong dance, merging commitments into our daily lives ... the internet, shopping, transport.

    Sharing ideas that to pay more and not always want the cheapest can benefit the society, and hence us and the world.

    Some great ideas for 2015 - sorry www.ethicalbay.coop did not make the short list but it would be great to have a discussion with ECRA about joining ethicalbay and building the alternative.

    Consumers more militant about their rights and better informed as to the effects of multi-nationals on economies.

    SO TIP and TTIP are the top matters.

    i want the end of non-stunning slaughter and live exports, and massively increased awareness of what you pay for and perpetuate when you buy cheap meat
