If you want to buy eco-friendly products there are a few ways to go about it. As interest in this type of item has increased, more organisations have emerged to cater to consumers who do not want their purchasing decisions to harm the environment.

To point you in the right direction, here are just a couple of places to find eco-friendly products that you should try out if this fits in with your ethos.

Visit bricks and mortar outlets

If you are lucky enough to live in a larger town or city, or can travel to visit one, then you should be able to seek out sustainable products with relative ease. Specialist shops for this type of item do exist, and major chain stores have started to stock a small selection of products from conscientious brands.

With some specialist searching it is also possible to find eco friendly products from small British companies and artisans in smaller towns and rural locations.

The problem with this approach is there is no guarantee that you will find what you are looking for, or that the right brand or item will be available at the right price, which makes it a bit of a gamble. Coupled with the fact that visiting the high street may not be an option at the moment, you might be better off looking elsewhere.

Use an online marketplace app

A problem for buyers and sellers of ethical eco friendly products has been market fragmentation:

  • For buyers – this is a hard to access and fragmented marketplace
  • For sellers – there is poor visibility, a massive amount of fantastic, ethical brands and products that just don’t get seen

Therefore, the perfect alternative to shopping for eco-friendly products in physical stores is taking advantage of a marketplace app like GoEthical to do this from wherever you are, at whatever time of day suits you. GoEthical addresses this fragmentation issue by bringing the market under one roof.

There are lots of compelling reasons to check out what GoEthical – The Ethical Life Marketplace App has to offer. Perhaps the most important feature being its extensive support for brands and sellers that have all sorts of sustainable items available to buy. GoEthical makes a positive difference to the environment and gives consumers access to a single market and choices.
