Our work with Ethical Consumer

Friends of the Earth and Ethical Consumer worked together as part of The Bee Cause campaign, to produce a consumer guide to honey.

This guide highglights the issues surrounding bees, and the vital role they play in our environment. It includes Ethical Consumer's best buy advice, and shows how small consumer choices can make a different to the lives of honey bees and the planet.

The guide to honey is just one of over 200 guides on the Ethical Consumer website. Each guide helps you choose products and services according to the issues you care about - whether that's climate change, GM crops, sweatshop labour or animal testing.

From bread to banks, thousands of shoppers use Ethical Consumer's product guides every week to check what to buy and what not to buy.


Essential reading for everyone that believes in democracy and citizen power as a way to create a truly sustainable society.
