What is ethy?
The ethy app helps you monitor your spending habits while keeping you up to date on crucial environmental and social issues. This enables you to ‘vote with your pound’ by supporting businesses with the planet at the heart of their goals and ethos.
You can see which businesses/companies/stores are local to you such as bulk refill stores (or vans!) and see those further afield for online shopping such as sustainable fashion companies.
All businesses are accredited with different badges so you can see who is making an impact and how.
Each badge reflects a specific type of sustainable practice derived from the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The UN Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. Read up on the UN's blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future here.

It also helps to track your spending with every day shops such as supermarkets and online retailers to see what they’re doing (or definitely not doing!) to play a part in a more sustainable future.
This is the ultimate app for making sure you’re making a difference with your spending. Placing your hard earned paycheques into the palms of earth-conscious businesses will help towards a more balanced and fair economy in the future.
