Co-operatives across the UK are doing green living work with their members and supporters.

We want to know motivates you to make greener lifestyle choices around the home.  


We're one of 50 co-operatives across the UK doing research with our members, customers and supporters.


The idea is that a large group of people with common interests may be able to achieve greater CO2 reductions as part of a collective project than if they are working individually.

The research will take place over a 3 month period and involve completing a few short online surveys. 


We'd like you to help.

  • Go to
  • Choose 'ethical consumer' from the list of co-ops during the registration process.
  • They'll email you with a link to take the first short survey.
