I wrote recently about how supporting Fair Trade products when you go shopping may not be the most effective way to help those in poverty. But the idea of making a difference every time you go shopping is an attractive one. And it can still be done.
By taking the Giving What We Can pledge you can make a truly significant difference to the lives of people living in extreme poverty. 10% may seem like a lot but it doesn’t take too many changes to save a significant amount of money.
This is the first in a series of easy ethical changes you can make to do more good.
Why not try some of these 10 spending swaps and donate the money saved to effective charities?
