No matter how hard we try, the reality is that every purchase we make will have some effect on our planet and its life.
Our view is that we try and address this by partnering with a very select group of organizations that we feel are best placed at eliminating or reducing the harm – working on the root causes of problems, not just tinkering with the symptoms.
One major partner for each of the four issues of Human, Animal, Environmental, and Corruption.
Smaller, specialist partners who may not command the same level of publicity or membership as the big organizations but play a vital role in improving and protecting our planet and its life.
Together we’ll work to build a more moral and healthier society, freeing us from consumption and greed so we can all live well in a fair world.
WDC, Whale and Dolphin Conservation (formerly WDCS) is the leading global charity dedicated to the conservation and protection of whales and dolphins. Through campaigns, lobbying, advising governments, conservation projects, field research and rescue they defend these remarkable creatures against the many threats they face.
Their vision is a world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free.
WDC cares passionately about whales and dolphins and want others to care about them too. So they campaign globally, speaking with emotion and wonder, and always with authority. They make sure their voice is heard by decision makers.
WDC’s core belief is that all whales and dolphins have the right to exist as nature intends, not as humans decide. To be able to live free from hunting, captivity, entanglement in fishing gear and nets, and to swim in clean, noise-free waters where boats won't injure them.

The Green Party of England and Wales promotes the policies of ecological sustainability, a fairer more stable economy and a more equal society. They believe in a higher standard of democracy and the accountability of politicians to the communities they serve. They believe in social justice on a global level as well as in our own country.
They are not afraid to stand up and defend the things they believe in.
The Green Party, unlike all the other parties, is wholly democratic; their policy is developed and passed by the membership, not the leadership. It is their belief that each individual voice needs to be heard and listened to that sets them apart from the other parties, all paid and directed by corporate interests.
Green politicians serve to make the world a better place for everyone, not just themselves, offering real change, for the common good.
