    Hi everyone,

    I’m a postgraduate student from the University of Manchester. For my dissertation I’m exploring the potential tensions ethical consumers may experience in the context of pleasurable aspects of consumption. I would like to uncover the means ethical consumers employ to enjoy the marketplace while sticking with their principles.

    • Have you ever been in a situation where you had to make difficult decisions in the marketplace due to ethical concerns?
    • When the marketplace is full of things that excite you yet contradict your ethical principles, what do you do?

    I would like to find people who are willing to share their personal consumption experiences with me via an approximately hour-long interview
    I’m trying to find adults over the age of 18, and are able to meet up in Manchester. Any gender/ethnicity are welcome.
    If you are unable to share your stories in person, but would be able to contribute via email please let me know and I will send you a small number of open ended questions to answer.

    I appreciate you reading my post; any help you can give will be very much appreciated!

    Please contact me at wen-yuan.tsai@postgrad.mbs.ac.uk
