The Perfect Christmas Gift


Inspire someone with the gift of a year's subscription to Ethical Consumer:

  • Six issues of Ethical Consumer Magazine
  • Each issue as a digital book and download
  • Entire magazine back catalogue in digital format
  • Simple ethical ratings of over 40,000 companies, brands and products
  • Fully customisable scorecards, according to their own personal concerns and ethics
  • Free listing in the ethical business directory
  • Every single research report in digital format
  • Introduction booklet



Each gift subscription includes sponsorship of an organic olive sapling in Palestine, through the Palestinian Fair Trade Association. Your gift recipient will receive a certificate of sponsorship. 

These trees are planted in areas where trees have been destroyed by the Israeli army or settlers, or are 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


All for just £29.95

(due to airmail postage costs, non-UK print subscriptions are priced at £39.95)





Choose either a digital-only or print subscription. With a Digital subscription your recipient will not get a printed paper copy of the magazine. They will instead get access to it as a digital book and download. Print subscribers get both a print copy and digital access. 


Choose when to send your gift

Your gift recipient will be able to access the website and digital issues of the magazine as soon as you send them the activation email. That means that you can buy a subscription at any time throughout the Christmas period.


Last order dates for Christmas print copies

If you choose to give a Print subscription, we will send the first magazine to your gift recipient in the week before Christmas, provided that you order before midnight on Wednesday 16th December

If you want it sent earlier, or to another address, or if this is not a Christmas gift, please email or call us on 0161 226 2929.
