The SHOP ETHICAL! app gives you the low-down on the environmental and social record of companies behind common brands you buy in Australian supermarkets and beyond. Shop with a clear conscience!
The most popular digital guide to ethical shopping in Australia, Shop Ethical! has been completely redesigned to provide consumers with the easiest way to make informed purchasing decisions.
The Shop Ethical! app features the most up to date data from the Shop Ethical! website. Free data updates are released every 3 months or so, which can be downloaded over the air without requiring an app update.
Shop Ethical! builds on the success of previous editions with thousands of downloads already and 110,000 copies of the printed guide in the hands of Australian consumers.
The Shop Ethical! app provides consumers instant access to over 4,000 products with related company information and lets them make an informed and ethical decision whenever they shop.
By shopping ethically consumers can send a strong message for change and help support the practices that make our world a better place to live in.
The Shop Ethical! app uses the latest data from the Shop Ethical! website (ethical.org.au) and is also available as a book. Company ratings are based on information gathered from over 30 sources including the work of organisations such as Greenpeace, Choose Cruelty Free, WWF, Free2Work and Friends of the Earth.
Shop Ethical! is a collaboration between the Ethical Consumer Group and Outware Mobile.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS :
Best app I have, I use it daily and it's changed the way I see the world.
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". I have always wanted this information but have never had the spare energy to go and find it myself. You have done a brilliant job. Please let me know if you have a panel of testers or proof readers which requires more members, or any other way in which I can contribute to your efforts from home while Miss 8 sleeps. I have been forwarding your "tell a friend" message onto everyone I know who has an iPhone.

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

Ratings and Reviews
A wonderful resource
Use this app regularly and have used it for years now. Really appreciate how it gets updated when the ethical practices of a company change and how new companies are added all the time. Saves me a lot of research! Thanks very much.
Highly useful and easy to use, no fuss design.
Allowing you to get the information you need with only a few touches to the screen, with more detailed information there when needed.
Fantastic app. Really brings change in you.
Just one bug - sometimes when you’re going into a category like Retail > Clothing Stores you won’t be able to scroll through that page.
Keep it up! Everybody fork out a little for this app!
