Client Testimonials

Best app I have, I use it daily and it’s changed the way I see the world. Emma, VIC

Simply, “Thank you.” I am so grateful that you have done all the hard work, so that lazy/tired/child-distracted mothers like me can confidently tell their whining 8 year olds “no, we are not buying that, because the people who will get our money hurt other people and/or animals”.

AWESOME app!! Thanks guys. I’m a naturopath that tries to educate my patients on the benefits of ethical shopping and living sustainably. Will definately be recommending this app to my patients. Great work! Elise, Vic

Thank you big time for this app!! It’s so easy to use at the supermarket and clarifies so many of the issues surrounding products and companies, making the weekly shop fit better with my conscience. My kids are also able to look and see if their favourite things are positive or negative and can make their own ethical shopping decisions. Brilliant!!! Sara, Canberra

Shop Ethical! app is available for $3.99 from the iTunes App Store.

Shop Ethical! is a collaboration between the Ethical Consumer Group and Outware Mobile.
