Welcome to ethishop – the new online directory and guide to ethical shopping. We’re just a small team who are passionate about shopping ethically and got fed up with the amount of research that we had to do every time we wanted to buy something new. So we built ethishop as a way of sharing our discoveries with each other and now with the wider world.
Our dream is to be the website you’ll want to visit when you need to buy something, but you don’t know where to look because, let’s face it, shopping ethically can be hard, time consuming and a jargon minefield. We have both been trying to live and shop more ethically for over a decade now and we are certainly not perfect at it. So we believe that a free online resource to help people find more ethical alternatives can only be a good and helpful thing.
We’re also passionate about promoting great local businesses, so we’ve creating an “offline” directory of shops and eateries, as well as an online directory which is in the works.
We live in the beautiful city of Sheffield, so that’s where we’ve started our directory. We only have two brains between us, and although we have a wide knowledge of ethical shops, brands and websites out there, it is far from complete. Chances are you will know something we don’t, maybe you even own a shop or brand and would like to feature it on our site. Anyone can, and is encouraged to, submit a listing to either our local or online directory,
If you’re reading this and wishing that we’d covered your area too, get in touch – we’d love to know where else might benefit from what we’re doing. We’re also very happy to hear from other potential collaborators if you’ve got the time to help us.
