Product Description


The new edition of The GOOD Shopping Guide for 2005 reveals the ethical records of hundreds of glossy consumer brands and the companies behind them - it also ranks them exactly according to environmental, animal welfare and human rights records. Over 700 consumer brands are examined in detail - everything from banks to butter. Which bank is really the most ethical with its investment policy? Is a Neff fridge better for the environment than an Indesit? Is a Dyson more or less ethical than an Electrolux? Which brand of tea is best in terms of human rights records? Is Colgate or Oral B more ethical in terms of animal testing? Norwich Union or Prudential for insurance? A pint of John Smith's or a pint of Tetley? All this is backed up by solid gold-standard research from The Ethical Consumer Research Association, an independent co-operative which has been the authority in this field since 1989. Full colour throughout, the book is superbly art-directed and contains positive photography of the natural world - as well as all the detailed information on brands. This new edition includes new and updated sections.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, practical guide to Ethical Shopping 24 Nov 2004
By Mike
The Good Shopping Guide is an excellent guide to which brands to buy and which brands to avoid from an ethical point of view. There are about 70 different product categories - from butter to jeans and banks to shampoo - which include substantial editorial on the ethical issues involved plus a summary of the best brands to buy (and which not to). The summary is taken from an indepth ethical anaylisis of the companies behind each brand and shows how they perfom against a number of different ethical criteria (eg. animal testing, pollution, armaments, genetic engineering). Did you know that Diesel is a more ethical brand of jeans than Calvin Klein? Or a Whirlpool washing machine is better than a Bosch? Not only is this an essential reference guide for ethical consumers, but it is also extremely informative and interesting. It can be easily dipped in and out of before you go shopping or captivate you for hours!
