Simple Steps to a Better World

Ethical Bookseller Survey

The 2017 survey In 2017 I carried out a survey of the top 10 ethical online booksellers, ranking them for things including customer experience, packaging and price relative to Amazon. I then combined my results with Ethical Consumer Magazine’s ‘ethiscore’ for each bookseller to give a top ten list of alternatives to Amazon.

Ethical Revolution is now the go-to website for people looking to find books from alternative sellers to Amazon and I even have an Ethical Bookseller Search Tool which browses many of these sellers and more so you don’t have to trawl through all of them individually to find the best option.

The bookseller ratings are now kept up to date by visitors to Ethical Revolution like yourself submitting feedback below. See the up to date ratings here.
