friendly goods and high ethical trading standards, Oliver said: "With our passage out of recession we are seeing positive shifts in the expectations of how and where we should spend our money. Just look at the success and raised awareness of Small Business Saturday, recent street markets in Downing Street, online ethical campaigns and the fair trade movement. There's a growing swell of real human sentiment. “It's clear that consumer ethics and the


environmental concerns are back on the agenda with a desire for authenticity, transparency and a greater respect for the

Hear their stories, find out what makes them "better", be impressed by their design, style and sophistication, and never look back. People power and the planet are making their move."
