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

A gift subscription is identical to one you buy for yourself.

Your lucky person will be able to access the website (and digital copies of the magazine) as soon as you send them the activation email. For a print subscription you can also tell us the issue to begin with.

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

We will take payment when you order, but you can cancel by phone or email within 30 days for a full no-questions-asked refund!

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.

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!

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, like the Fair Tax Mark and Badger Action News.

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 shop@ethicalconsumer.org

 

Outside of the United Kingdom, you will receive exactly the same subscription, with the same 30 day trial period.

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 = £29.95 

Print Magazine + Digital subscription to any address worldwide = £39.95
