Welcome

What does it mean to live an ethical life?

This blog is my attempt to answer this question.  I explore what we eat, where and how much we donate, where we shop, how we spend our time and even where we work.

Welcome to Practically Ethics.   It’s not perfect but it is practically ethics.

I don’t have all the answers.  I don’t even have most of them.  This blog is all about my own attempts to find out what changes I can make that will have the most positive impact in the world.

My name is Larissa.  That’s me on the right with my fiancé Joe.

Currently I work as an event manager in Sussex, UK.  I volunteer with Giving What We Can and I’ve been vegan since September 2014.  I enjoy football, running, reading fantasy and philosophy, writing, live music and organising fundraising events.

I began this blog in January 2015 as somewhere to focus my thoughts as I grappled with the idea that I should probably be doing a lot more to help others in the world who – through no fault of their own – are in dire need.

Like any good journey I’m not alone.  My best friend Coralie (aka El Skief) also writes for Practically Ethics.  She covers a variety of topics like being ethical on a budget, personal morality and international campaigns to end poverty. All under the banner of Ethically Bankrupt.

You can find out more about Coralie here.

We’d love to hear from you as well.

If you have ideas of things we can try to make the world a better place, disagree (or agree!) with something we’ve written or would like ideas of what you can do please do comment or get in touch.

What does it mean to you to live more ethically?
