What people say about Ethical Consumer

I trust Ethical Consumer more than any other news source. I also believe that not buying stuff from unethical producers is an effective action for change.

My Ethical Consumer membership was some of the best money I ever spent. I consult your site before I buy almost anything, and it's wonderfully useful for those of us looking for trustworthy information on Ethical purchasing.

Essential reading for everyone that believes in democracy and citizen power as a way to create a truly sustainable society.

I've subscribed to Ethical Consumer for about a year now.  I just want to say well done and keep up the good work, to you and your team. Ethical consumption is such a confusing area for a lay person like me, and your magazine helps me to frame the issues and make up my mind, based on the information available. Thank you.

A mind-boggling thoroughness and integrity that makes everyone else look like a Charlatan.

I have been a subscriber for about 18 months now, and just wanted to say how good the banking report was. It really is a very good way of opening our eyes to what is going on and I have been able to use it effectively when trying to create changes in people's attitudes.

Ethical Consumer magazine is one of the most addictive and important magazines I've ever read. They're opening my eyes to so many more problems and solutions to building a better world. Subscribe!

I want you to know that I use Ethical Consumer website prior to all of my purchases and find it incredibly useful in steering me away from global companies who disregard human decency, animal welfare and environmental safeguarding. I understand due to the incredible complexities of this current global economic system that unpicking the web of dirty economic dealings is incredibly difficult but let me assure you that your efforts are greatly appreciated!

A real inspiration and a helpful guide to an increasingly complex world!

About subscriptions

About subscriptions

Our mission is to help consumers make informed ethical choices, support campaigners challenging corporate power, enable progressive businesses and charities to check their supply chains, and drive corporates to improve their behaviour.

We have achieved a lot since 1989, and with your help we can do much more.

Each subscription not only gives you unique, trusted and independent information. It also helps to fund our campaigns and other work, such as the Fair Tax Mark.

As a subscriber, you can also become a member of Ethical Consumer, a completely independent not-for-profit co-operative at the heart of the ethical consumer movement.

When you buy a subscription and we take the payment when you order.

If you don't want to continue with it you can cancel any time within the first 30 days to receive a full refund.

To cancel just telephone us during office hours on 0161 226 2929 or email

Outside of the United Kingdom, you will receive exactly the same subscription.

The only difference is that if you choose a Print subscription it will cost more, owing to the cost of sending you the print copy by Airmail. 

Digital Only subscription = £34.50

Print Magazine + Digital subscription to any address worldwide = £45.95

NB: Print magazine subscription deliveries after July 2021 to EU countries may be subject to local delivery tax charges due to Brexit. Sorry.
