    Raising awareness about Amazon's business model amongst consumers is absolutely essential but we can do more than be against and boycott, some of which have been suggested by AA and the Ethical Consumer. We wanted to make it easy and simple for producers and consumers to sell and “buy the good” : ethical products through an ethical marketplace. For us the marketplace must also be owned and controlled by its stakeholders. Hence www.ethicalbay.coop a global ubiquitous alternative

    This will be a tough build - tech cooperatives are notoriously difficult to get off the ground: we not only have to build a viable website but also develop a sustainable business run by its users! Eventually, as a global network or trading community it will play its role in ensuring that the wealth generated along the supply chains will be fairly distributed to the creators.

    Anyone wishing to sign up and help to build the thing we want please go to the website. For a bit more information there's a slide show on youtube http://youtu.be/hBnzZT3pbLM. We'd also love it if you supported our first funding application by following and recommending at http://www.f6s.com/ethicalbay?utm_s...n=program.

    We would love to hear your ideas for the kind of online marketplace we should build - find us on facebook.
