The Ethical Consumer Group is a community based, not-for-profit organisation and network, set up to help facilitate more sustainable purchasing practices for the everyday consumer. We are based in Australia. We produce the popular Shop Ethical! pocket guide and app which focuses on the environmental and social record of companies behind common brands, and draw from our extensive database of products, companies and issues. The recent Local Harvest project has been developed as a complimentary resource focusing on good food alternatives beyond the mainstream. We have run regular community events including our ‘Shopping with a Conscience‘ public workshops and supermarket tours, monthly ‘Meal & Movie’ nights and our annual ‘Household Action Challenge‘. These provide are an opportunity for people to explore living out practical alternatives in a consumer culture and share experiences, goals, and be inspired by what others are doing.
