Ethical Eats

Brought to you by Oxfam @ Queen's


Hello friends! Though we all try to eat LOFT as much as possible I know ;), there do come those times where you end up buying something you know is not LOFT. We all fall victim to the flashy marketing, cheap prices, and accessibility of those brands that have enjoyed commercial success. In order to help consumers to buy brands that are making the biggest steps towards environmental and gender justice, Oxfam created the Behind the Brands campaign! This campaign aims to expose how large corporations measure up in areas of: women, small-scale farming, treatment of farm workers, water, land, climate change, and transparency.

TAKE ACTION!

** SPOILER ALERT**

Nestlé and Unilever have  currently developed and published the most policies aimed at social and environmental risks within their supply chains, while ABF and Kellogg have the fewest. I learned this from the report at the link above!
