Connecting British People, To British Manufacturers
Why do ethical products come with high price tags?
In 2021, the phrases “Ethical” “Sustainable” “High Quality” often come with much higher price tags. Over the years we as consumers have come to associate the fact that if you want good quality products, you have to pay a high price tag.
And it make sense that this would be the case. Better quality products have higher quality ingredients. The cost of renewable and sustainable products is often higher than the cost of cheaply, and often unsustainably, produced raw ingredients.
But what if there was another way?
The cost of manufacturing is reducing!
Year after year we are told that we can produce more product for lower cost. As we move towards more automated processes in manufacturing products, manufacturing the products we use on a regular basis, has become so cost effective we have developed a “throwaway” culture, it can often be cheaper to buy something brand new than repair anything that becomes damaged!
And yet the cost of products keeps increasing, why?
Inflation, you might say. The cost of the raw ingredients is increasing so therefore the cost of the product will naturally increase as well. And you’d be correct. But what about the products that we know come with a higher price tag simply because they come with ethical or sustainable certificates or stamps?
For generations, we have shopped on the high-street, and a physical store was essential to attract business. And we as shoppers all came to know one thing.

When a business was based out of a physical store, I think we all know they have bills to pay. Rent, Business Rates, Bills, Wages and other overheads. But gradually over time more businesses than ever have turned to doing business online. In the Pandemic of 2020, the retail sector was a sector that struggled the most due to physical stores being ordered to close.
