We're the Ethical Buyer's team, and we're delighted to have you.
Welcome on board!
The Ethical Buyer was born in mid 2016. It is the project of a small group of close friends, social,
environment and animal welfare activists, with individual narratives, but similar values. We all care
strongly and share a deep respect for life in all it's wonderful variations. We see the beauty in diversity
of color, race and culture, and believe that every creature, man and animal, is entitled to a healthy, pain-free,
sustainable life. We see all of god's creatures equally as deserving of the abundance around us, and how ever so often
those resources are controlled by a powerful few.
We look around us and see mistreatment and abuse of the weak and unfortunate, with harsh labor conditions and under-paid jobs that can't put food on families tables. We see suffering, terrified farm animals treated like some object on a fast production line, tortured horribly their short lived and miserable existence. We look around and see a planet turned into a mass dump of toxic wastes and pollutants, and robbed of all its natural treasures. Our eyes are wide open with concern, and we say "Enough!".
That is how The Ethical Buyer was conceived... We gathered and came up with what we thought would be a good way to make a difference, a positive change, on a wider scale, by answering to 2 crucial needs:
1) Actively spreading awareness (to all of the above).
2) Promoting and supporting the "good doers" - Domestic, USA based businesses and practices, that share our values and abide by them.
We research and look for the businesses that best incorporate the core ethical values we believe in into their practices, services and production. Each of the showcased businesses must exude in their practice standards and products at least one of the following ethical values:
Look for these ethical labels at the bottom of each ad to see the virtues of each business.
