CAN I AFFORD TO BE ETHICAL?

Your way of life doesn’t have to be expensive if you want to be ethical too, as Clea Grady explains…

One of the things said most often about ethical living is that it’s expensive. Mainstream media especially likes to peddle this myth and it’s something that prevents many people from trying to make any ethical changes at all.

But – like anything in life – if you have the ability, then any lifestyle choice can be expensive. It’s possible to spend a lot of money on pretty things from sustainable sources, eat at high-end, plant-based restaurants and purchase posh pre-prepared, healthy food. But that’s not my reality. I’ve worked in the non-profit/charity sector since 2014 and now run my own ethical business, so money is not something I can part with without consideration. I know from experience therefore that it’s possible to live fairly frugally without turning your back on your ethics.
