    Think we've missed a trick not covering a company?

    We'd like to give our readers the opportunity to vote for the company that they would most like to see rated by Ethical Consumer.

    Nominations will be open until midday on Wednesday 10th February so get nominating straight away!

    After the closing date we'll set up a short survey on our website featuring the companies that you've nominated.

    Readers will then be able to vote for their 'most wanted' via a survey on our website.

    We'll then research the winning company, add them to the appropriate product guide (if there is one) and set up company profile page (like this one).

    Happy nominating and we look forward to sending you the survey later in the month.

    I was really disappointed not to see my favourite ethical clothing company Rapa Nui featured in the last report.

    I think you should cover surfing / ski clothes companies such as Billabong, Rip Curl, Quiksliver, Animal, Roxy etc

    It would be interesting to know if they really care about the out doors!

    I'm also interested to see you cover the high street shops which never feature in any reports such as Fat Face, White Stuff, Whistles as these appeal to the higher end of the high street clothing market but are they actually any better at ethically?

    Thanks for these suggestions.

    It would be great to cover surf wear companies. I believe lots of surfers are very concerned over water quality etc. I'll mention this to our editorial team.

    In the meantime i'll add the companies you mention to our nominations list.

    Thanks

    OCADO – it has a large and growing share of the supermarket sector.

    It's 'Rapanui'. It would be a waste of et's time to research Rapanui. Rapanui, a tiny eco company, is probably one of the most transparent companies one could find. It publishes loads of information about its practices in relation to its factory in Cowes, about traceability, sustainability and environmental impact. Far better to look at a company which fails to care/do these things and which has a significant share of the market.
