While you're reading HippyShopper and other favourite blogs, have you given any thought to the ethical policies of the Internet Service Provider which allows you to do so?
The Phone Co-op is an ethical communications company offering cheap broadband and dial-up internet connections, as well as both mobile and terrestrial phone packages. As the name suggests, the company is run as a co-operative. It also operates a strict environmental policy, promising to offset all the C02 it generates as a company. It does this through initiatives which include the use of recycled office stationery, using electricity from renewable energy sources wherever possible, and investing money in the Westmill Wind Farm co-operative. The Phone Co-op also advertises other ethical companies, in exchange for receiving a percentage of their profits when Phone Co-op customers purchase goods from them.
A broadband subscription from The Phone Coop costs £11.99 a month. A pay-as-you-go dial-up internet subscription costs 1p a minute during the evenings and at weekends, and 3.94p a minute the rest of the time.
