Tell us a bit about your business
Ethical WARES is a leading animal friendly company which has been running for over 23 years now. Best known for our extensive range of quality Vegan Footwear, we also sell lifestyle accessories (non-leather belts, cosmetics, bags, chocolates, etc), fair trade apparel and Tibetan handicrafts.
We try, through the goods that we sell, to play our part in making the world a fairer and kinder place for all its inhabitants.
Why do you think you received our Best Buy Label?
Not really for us to say, but we were the first footwear supplier to receive your Best Buy Label – so you must have thought we were doing something right!
If you had to sum up the ethos of Ethical Wares in one sentence, what would it be?
Animal rights, human rights, one struggle, one fight.
What sets you apart from other ethical retailers?
We try to link the vegan principles that underpin ethical WARES with a wider appreciation of other issues. We line up veganism, with Fair Trade issues, political campaigns, movements for social justice and of course animal rights. They all gel together to us and seem inextricably linked.
We would like to think that ethical WARES reflects this.
And, we’re into the practical animal rights stuff as well. We have over 40 rescued animals living with us on our small holding in the heart of West Wales.
