Hi everyone,

We’re more than half way through Buy Nothing New Month and a good time to take a look at the companies that make the fashion products we buy.

The Good On You App has been developed to help us make better choices. The App rates brands using the three categories of people, the planet and animals. The rating are based on a set of principles and independent date sources. So far the App has rating for almost 1000 . The aim is to provide a rating for every brand you can readily buy.

When we decide to buy something new (after this month) we can support companies doing the right thing for our people, our planet and our animals.

You can download the App from Apple App Store or Google Play.

For more information, go to: www.goodonyou.org.au/

Many thanks

Hi everyone,

Going to the supermarket is mind boggling these days. The shelves are packed full of so many choices. If you’re like me and want to choose products from companies that are socially responsible and doing the right thing for the environment then you’re going to love the Shop Ethical! App.

The App provides us with access to over 5000 products with related company information to help us make better choices in what we buy. It even covers fashion and gadget brands. Companies are rated based on information sourced from lots of areas including organisations such as Greenpeace, Choose Cruelty Free, WWF, Free2Work and Friends of the Earth. It’s regularly updated with data from the Shop Ethical! website. By shopping ethically you can help make change and support practices that make our world a better place.

The App is available for iPhone and Android at a cost of $4.94. This helps to fund the Ethical Consumer Group which is a not-for-profit community based organisation set up to help consumers like us make more sustainable purchases.

For more information, go to:

What Happened to Downtime? The Extinction of Deep Thinking & Sacred Space
http://the99percent.com/articles/6947/what-happened-to-downtime-the-extinct…

Interruption-free space is sacred. Yet, in the digital era we live in, we are losing hold of the few sacred spaces that remain untouched by email, the internet, people, and other forms of distraction. Our cars now have mobile phone integration and a thousand satellite radio stations.
