We're Championing Sustainable Shopping

by Ariel Maccarone

Sustainable Shopping and Ethical Consumerism are about understanding that every choice you make has a ripple effect beyond what you will ever know. That is why it is so important to be thoughtful about how you spend your money. Anna Lappé, the renowned sustainability advocate said, “Each time you spend money, you’re voting for the kind of world you want.” Ethic was born from this same idea. We want you to think about which companies should get your money; to be able to make that decision based upon what values you stand for and what the company stands for.


We’re compiling a marketplace of products from Certified B Corporations – consumer companies dedicated to positive environmental impact; ethical labor practices; and beneficial impact on the surrounding community. You’ll find categories of everyday items like clothing, shampoo, cleaning products, gifts, and more. Each item was chosen after researching the company’s practices and having one of our staff members test the product out.

So, feel free to shop. Remember: Buying is not an evil. The long-term impacts of those buying choices are what we need to consider.

Let’s be better, together.

Your community at The FIG
