Fair and Square: Ethical Shopping Matters

The end of the Fair and Square project has been marked by the publication of Fair and Square: Ethical shopping matters. The book contains articles on being an ethical shopper, creating a fair, healthy and sustainable food system and tackling poverty.

Additionally, the book considers the effect of cows on the environment, looks at co-operative local responses to the food security debate and explains how The Co-operative is sourcing ethically produced fish.

Introduced by Ed Mayo, Secretary General of Co-operativesUK, contributors include Ruth Rosselson of Ethical Consumer magazine, Geoff Tansey, Laura Vickery and Colin Baines from The Co-operative Group, Rachel English from Manchester Metropolitan University, Samantha Lacey, Rebecca Forecast and Ruth Bergan from the Co-operative College, Leonie Nimmo of Olive Co-operative, Helen Rimmer of Friends of the Earth, Sarah Alldred of Co-operativesUK and Adam York from Unicorn grocery. Illustrations are by Janis Goodman. The publication is available both as hard copy and to download.
