Increasingly, consumers in North America and Europe see their
purchasing as a way to express to the commercial world their
concerns about trade justice, the environment and similar issues.
This ethical consumption has attracted growing attention in the
press and among academics. Extending beyond the growing body of
scholarly work on the topic in several ways, this volume focuses
primarily on consumers rather than producers and commodity chains.
It presents cases from a variety of European countries and is
concerned with a wide range of objects and types of ethical
consumption, not simply the usual tropical foodstuffs, trade
justice and the system of fair trade. Contributors situate ethical
consumption within different contexts, from common Western
assumptions about economy and society, to the operation of

consumption affects, this volume presents a compelling
interrogation of the rhetoric and assumptions of ethical
