Let’s get real, being ethical can be hard. Everywhere you go you can see sales and advertisement from brands and products that are not good with people or the earth and it can get really confusing. After all that noise, you always end up asking yourself: What is really good for the world? We all need resources and tools that can help us be more educated on our purchases and in the way we consume goods. Here we have three tools that will make it easier to shop. These three resources are available for everyone with a smartphone or a computer and will help you to be more aware of what you are consuming.
