The way that we live means that we are constantly consuming – from the food we eat to the clothes we wear to the things we watch on the telly. But what effect is this consumption having on us and the people/ environment around us?

We discuss what the word ‘ethical’ means and how we might apply it more in our daily lives, with two companies fighting hard to change the way that we consume.
