Eco Shopping:

There are now a plethora of websites dedicated to eco-friendly products and we have listed a few good examples. Inevitably some businesses will simply jump on the bandwagon, so there are some organisations that set standards to be met when labelling products.
 
The Soil Association are the body responsible for setting the standard for organic food , while the Fair Trade Foundation sets the UK standard for fairtrade -approved products bear their logos as illustrated below:
 
  • Bishopston Trading -Bristol based outlet importing goods made with fairtrade organic cotton from the partner factory in the district of Kuppam in Southern India.
  • Co-operative Bank -the high street bank with a strong ethical and moral agenda.
