ANIMAL AID LAUNCHES ETHICALSTUDENT.COM
Posted 27 September 2005
An 'ethical student survival guide' website, launched by national campaign group Animal Aid, shows students how to thrive in university with their ethics intact. EthicalStudent.com gives advice on how to eat, drink, shop and study in ways that are animal-friendly, environmentally-friendly and people-friendly!
The guide is being launched in time for Freshers' Week because, for many, this will be the first time they have had to buy their own food, clothes and cleaning products. With finances being an additional concern, the website shows students how to manage on a tight budget, and includes handy tips on how to be green without going into the red.
The site also promotes recycling, fair trade and other worthy campaigns, making it a well-rounded, one-stop shop for anyone who wants to do their bit towards making the planet a better place.
Says Chris Anderson, Animal Aid Campaigns Officer:
"With so many products on offer from companies that boast supposedly-ethical policies, this website makes it much easier for students with a conscience to weed out what's genuine and what's not. Charity starts at home - or in this case, in halls of residence and on campus!"
