The Ethical Superstore has grown from strength to strength over recent years, as the public has become increasingly aware of its wide selection of ethically produced goods, ranging from groceries, through to electronic equipment, fashion and luxury items.

Conservative party parliamentary hopeful, Wendy Morton, has finally cottoned on to the wonders of Ethical Superstore, as she recently told her local newspaper. Accompanied by Bernard Jenkin, MP for North Essex, Wendy Morton visited the Ethical Superstore’s headquarters and was delighted with what she saw.

"What struck me most”, she said, “was the innovation and imagination behind many of the products. For example handbags made from recycled juice packets, and beer glasses made from recycled bottles.”

Morton praised the store’s array of Fairtrade products, affirming the need for small businesses in developing countries to have a market for their goods. The Ethical Superstore provides a source of trade and helps encourage the development of vital skills.

The Ethical Superstore has built its reputation by only stocking products with ethical credentials, and on the promotion of innovative products from start-up businesses in developing countries. Only if a product is fairly traded, organic, eco-friendly, good for health and wellness, or education-focused, will it be stocked.
