Hey! I’m Ruth and The Green Shopper is here to make it easier for you to make informed and positive ethical shopping decisions.

My background is in design and illustration, and after graduating from my MA in 2007, I spent a decade working as an educational children’s author and illustrator. .

I’ve got over twenty years of work experience in sustainability—from ethical retail (including worker’s co-operatives, refill shops, natural beauty manufacturers, and fair trade homewares) through to community agriculture and organic market gardening.

If you’ve got an ethical lifestyle dilemma, or want advice about sustainable alternatives for a favourite product, drop me a comment or message and I’ll do my best to help out.
