Making it easy to be ethical (whatever your beliefs)
Each day we all make choices according to our personal ethics. Ethical Consumer provides the tools and resources you need to make these choices simple, informed and effective.
For over 25 years we have been the hub of the ethical consumer movement, helping consumers to shop ethically, campaigners to challenge corporate power and businesses to improve their supply chain.
Some of this is free to access, while the full set of tools is available for a small yearly subscription, which in turn helps fund our work.

Product Guides and information for shoppers
We've developed the world's most sophisticated and simple personal ethical rating system to give you the information you need, based on detailed research of over 40,000 companies, brands and products.
These ratings are updated in real time from our corporate critic database.
You can personalise our 200+ ethical product guides in a way that accurately reflects the issues that are most important to you - be that animal testing, climate change, sweatshop labour, GM crops, nuclear power or whatever.
Subscribers can also access detailed product, brand & company information, plus hundreds of detailed research downloads.
We run campaigns on key ethical issues such as the Boycott of Amazon for tax avoidance, and jointly run campaigns on Palm Oil and to 'Save our Bank'.
We also collaborate on The Lush Prize, and set up the Fair Tax Mark.
Research & Consultancy
We provide research and consultancy for campaign groups and organisations such as Amnesty International, Christian Aid, Co-op Bank, and the Guardian.
Since 1999 the Ethical Consumer Markets Report has been acting as an important barometer of UK spending.
We track sales data across a wide range of consumer sectors and publich the findings.
