Gift Sponsorship Details

Your gift can also include sponsorship of an organic olive sapling in Palestine. Your gift recipient will receive a certificate of sponsorship. We work in partnership with Olive Co-op and the Palestinian Fair Trade Association (PFTA) to plant olive trees in areas where trees have been destroyed by the Israeli army or settlers, or given to farmers that have lost land behind Israel’s series of walls and fences.

(If you would rather not include this extra free gift let us know in the 'Where did you hear about us?' box on the order form).



How to Order



Choose either a Digital-only or Print subscription. The only difference is that with a Digital subscription your recipient will not get a printed paper copy of the magazine, just access to download it digitally.

Your gift recipient will be able to access the website and the digital magazine as soon as you send them the log-in email that you will automatically get from us. That means that you can buy a digital gift subscription at any time throughout the Christmas period.

If you choose a print subscription (rather than digital only), your gift recipient may not receive their first magazine before Christmas. They will however, be able to access the website and digital editions of the magazine as soon as you give them the log-in details that we send to you.

If you want it sent earlier or to another address, please email








Can I purchase a gift subscription over the phone?

Yes, just call us on 0161 226 2929 with your credit card details, during office hours.


When will the recipient get their subscription?

It depends on whether you choose a Print or Digital-only subscription:

Print gift subscriptions - we will post the Jan/Feb 2015 issue of Ethical Consumer in January but the recipient can access the website as soon as you send them their log-in email which we send to you. The Jan/Feb 2015 magazine will be viewable on the website as a pdf or a flip-book.

Digital-only gift subscriptions - you automatically receive the email with the recipient's log-in details when you order online, so you decide when to send them their gift!


I haven't received any emails from you?

Please check your spam or junk mail folders. If you still can't find an email from, contact us on 0161 226 2929.
