Shop Ethical! Dobs In Your Dodgy Groceries

Shop Ethical! Dobs In Your Dodgy Groceries

Worried about the provenance of those items in your shopping trolley? iPhone app Shop Ethical! lets you research the background of products before you buy them.

The data in the Australian-developed app comes from the Guide To Ethical Supermarket Shopping 2010, and includes background information on the companies behind 2,800 products, including their environmental and social policy records. It’s a useful tool if you don’t want your money going to companies with questionable practices.

Shop Ethical! runs on iPhone or iPod Touch, and costs $4.99. (Alas, ethical shopping rarely turns out to be the cheapest option.)
