'Honest Shopping' guides promote eco-friendly shopping in NL17 January 2013, by Carly Blair
A new initiative in the Netherlands, started by the volunteer network of Oxfam Novib, aims to promote shopping at businesses offering fair trade, organic and second hand products via the website Eerlijkwinkelen.nl ("Honest Shopping").
On the website you can find Google maps labeled with all kinds of "honest" businesses in 25 cities, big and small, located all over the country. These maps are also available in paper form. The website also has an agenda of relevant events (e.g. the Food Film Festival).
If you would like to get more involved, go to their page "Doe mee!" (Join in!), where you can suggest businesses to add, inscribe your own business, and even ask questions in the forum they've set up (e.g. Where can I find a sustainable bikini?).
