Sorry can't watch vids my sound is not working, which makes me ask how the HELL does a hearing impaired member get by? I tell you have no regard.


I would prefer to purchase all my essentials on a moral or ethical basis.
But
We can't afford to shop in any store that has a philosophy.- Marge Simpson

I hear a lot of retailers claim they are operating on an ethical basis, but the prices tend to be alarming at times.I am aware ethical business practices are expensive, which contributes to cost.
Here is what I think an "ethical" business model should be.
Not for profit.
Enough income to pay the owner and employees a respectable wage and cover overheads.
If it really about ethics, and not exploiting a target market there should really be no resistance to this model by those that wish to establish an ethical business model.

Take The body shop as an example which claims to be ethical, in 2005 they made profits of $67 million dollars.And have since been aquired by a company for 652 million pounds.
