The original aim of this group was to encourage members of the public to shop ethically by -

  1. Making a list of vegetarian or cruelty-free alternatives stocked by local shops.
  2. Distributing the lists via door-to-door leafleting.
  3. Creating a simple to understand list of high nutrition alternatives, so that people wishing to become ethical shoppers can do so with the assurance that their health will not be impaired.
  4. Identifying the cheapest local suppliers of ethical products and organic food.

The hope being to raise consciousness of ethical alternatives, and the goal to thereby reduce sales of unethical one, resulting in an erosion of the profit margin for these products.

Many unethical products may have a profit margin of only 10%, so a small shift in purchases may make them unprofitable, and they'll be taken off the shelves.

Members can meet once a month to compile the lists, which will then be printed out. Then we will do some door-to-door leafleting as a group.

There are warehouses where products can be bought at extremely low prices, and local farm grown produce, and we could arrange visits to these locations.

(This is a modified version of group creator Craig's original description, Amrit took over the group using a spare group, when Craig dropped out)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
