Our ethical buying policy

The Ethical Shop follows an ethical buying policy to ensure that our products are sourced responsibly:

Fair Trade Evie candle holder

Fair Trade

Fair Trade brings immediate and sustainable improvements to the lives of producers at the sharp end of the supply chain. While the movement has its issues, it is committed to continuous reflection and improvement to go on empowering producers of the Global South through a fairer trading system.

Organic bath towels


Organic can describe a wide range of products, from clothing to olive oil. Each industry has a specific set of strict standards of environmentally and animal friendly methods of production. The founding principles are of health, ecology, fairness and care, and these values feed through supply chains to ensure full traceability.

Recycled Glass Bottles


From candles to Christmas stockings, these varied products are made from recycled materials, sending less materials to landfill and encouraging creative sustainability. The New Internationalist magazine and many of our books are also printed on recycled paper.

Eco Friendly Stopgap Floor Insulation

Eco friendly

Products with this tag have a purpose of benefit to the environment, through energy saving or the encouragement of green living using organic, solar-powered, and recycled innovations.

Educational Books


Our games, posters and books are packed with information and thought-provoking insights for adults and children alike.

Made in the UK throw and cushion

Made in the UK

Products made right here in the UK have a raft of benefits: they have a smaller carbon footprint and support local creativity and initiatives. We look to work with social enterprises, co-operatives, charities and similar organizations to find products that meet our commitments.

Please do contact us if you have any questions about the source of any of the items on sale. We welcome questions and feedback on how we might develop and improve our policy.
