About Us

We champion ethical and sustainable choices.

We are a small family business established in 2020. We know that more than 60% of consumers want do the right thing. However, like us, find it difficult to navigate and trust the high volume of offers out there. So The Ethical Market was set up to bring together liked minded people and products into an easy place to find.

We are dedicated to curating a selection of products that align with our values of social and environmental responsibility. Our mission is to empower people to make ethical choices without compromising on quality or style.

Our Values:

Sustainability: We prioritise eco-friendly and sustainable practices in every aspect of our business, from sourcing to packaging.

Fair Labour Practices: We support fair labour practices and strive to ensure that the products we showcase are made under ethical working conditions.

Modern Slavery: We combat modern slavery by raising awareness, supporting companies with transparent supply chains, advocating for fair labour practices, and choosing products certified as slavery-free.

Ethical Sourcing: we take pride in our commitment to ethical sourcing, ensuring that every product in our collection upholds the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility.

Environmental Impact: Sustainability is at the core of our sourcing strategy. We select materials and partners that minimise environmental impact, aiming for longevity, recyclability, and a reduced carbon footprint.

Join us in making a difference — shop ethically, choose sustainably, and be part of the movement towards a more conscious and compassionate world.

Why Ethical Sourcing Matters to Us:

Empowering Communities: By choosing ethically sourced products, we contribute to the well-being of communities worldwide, fostering positive social and economic change.

Environmental Stewardship: We recognise the importance of protecting our planet. Ethical sourcing allows us to play our part in conserving natural resources and preserving ecosystems.

Quality Assurance: Ethical sourcing is not just about ethics; it’s also about quality. We believe that products made with care and consideration result in superior quality and longer-lasting satisfaction for our customers.

Why Local Manufacturing Matters to Us:

Reduced Carbon Footprint: By producing locally, we significantly minimise transportation-related emissions, contributing to a smaller carbon footprint compared to goods shipped over long distances.

Supporting Communities: We believe in fostering local economies. Our commitment to local manufacturing means investing in nearby communities, creating jobs, and supporting businesses that share our values.

Quality Assurance: Proximity to manufacturing facilities allows us to maintain a hands-on approach, ensuring the highest quality standards. This not only benefits our customers but also supports the reputation of local craftsmanship

Flexibility and Responsiveness: Local manufacturing provides agility in responding to market demands and customer feedback. We can adapt quickly, introducing improvements and innovations without extended lead times.

Our Local Manufacturing Practices:

Partnerships: We collaborate with local suppliers and manufacturers who share our commitment to ethical and sustainable practices.

Materials: Whenever possible, we source materials locally to support nearby industries and reduce the environmental impact associated with transportation.

By choosing The Ethical Market you are not just purchasing a product; you are supporting a sustainable and community-oriented approach to manufacturing. Thank you for being part of our commitment to local excellence.

Carbon Footprint:

Reducing your carbon footprint involves actions like using energy-efficient appliances, minimizing car usage, supporting sustainable products, and opting for renewable energy sources when possible.

Imported goods often contribute to a product’s carbon footprint due to transportation and manufacturing processes. At The Ethical Market, we are committed to minimizing the import carbon footprint through strategic practices:

Local Sourcing: Whenever possible, we source materials and products locally to minimize the environmental impact of long-distance transportation. Supporting local industries not only reduces carbon emissions but also fosters regional economic growth.

Supply Chain Optimisation and Consolidation: We continuously work to streamline our supply chain, optimising routes, and processes to decrease transportation-related emissions. This involves collaborating with suppliers who share our commitment to sustainability. We always try to consolidate one trip deliveries and so should you!

Sustainable Shipping: When we or our vendors must import raw material, semi-finished or finished goods, we prioritise eco-friendly shipping methods, considering options like sea freight with lower emissions compared to air transportation. This helps reduce the carbon footprint associated with bringing products to our customers.

Carbon Offsetting: To counterbalance unavoidable emissions, we seek out carbon offset initiatives. This ensures that our deliveries remain carbon-neutral or actively contribute to environmental restoration projects.

By choosing The Ethical Market, you’re supporting a business dedicated to reducing the import carbon footprint, contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally conscious future. Thank you for joining us on this journey towards a greener world.
