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 comprehensive guide to ethical shopping in Australia, Shop Ethical! has been designed to provide consumers with the easiest way to make informed purchasing decisions.
The Shop Ethical! app provides consumers instant access to over 5,000 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. The Shop Ethical! app has been downloaded thousands of times since 2010, and the Shop Ethical! book has sold over 135,000 copies since 2008.
Company ratings are based on information gathered from over 50 sources including the work of organisations such as Greenpeace, Choose Cruelty Free, WWF, Rank a Brand 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
Comprehensive information, easy to understand, simple to use
A great app! It opened my eyes to what was really happening to get clothes in the stores and what I was really paying for when I do my groceries. It’s super simple to use and it explained how they get all their information and how they essentially rank a brand. So useful!
Information with evidence.
I appreciate being given evidence and explanations of the ratings; I feel respected in not simply being told to trust what someone else decides.
I really appreciate being empowered to support companies who do the right thing and to hopefully influence others to change.
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.
