We lead busy lives and researching every item in the supermarket would be exhausting. Thankfully The Ethical Consumer Group has done the work for us. Their Shop Ethical guide is a comprehensive look at thousands of companies and where they stand on issues such as deforestation, carbon footprint, child labour, palm oil, price fixing, misleading information and more.
A quick squiz on their site revealed they have called for a boycott on beauty companies including L’Oreal and The Body Shop. It got me thinking about where my favourite brands stood on the list.
