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.
