This app will give you 52 words of advice, actions or suggestions from lifestyle, diet, to your house and routine to make your life more sustainable.

When next doing the groceries, simply scan a product’s barcode to get its ‘ethical rating’. It’s all based on the environmental and social track record of the companies behind more than 4000 products. As Clint Healy from Shop Ethical explains, it’s “designed to provide consumers with the tools to make informed choices when shopping in the supermarket and beyond, so they can match their shopping habits with their values.”
