Ethical shopping on the rise Tech for Good Live

    • Society & Culture

Hello and welcome to yet another season of the Tech for Good Live podcast. 


In this episode we’ll be talking about an increase in ethical shopping in the UK. Amazing! Sure we’re a nation of self-centred, awful, monstrous, racist muppets… but we do take our shopping seriously at least. 


We’ll also be talking about two poverty porn influencers who are having a fight. 


Host Bex is joined by Tech For Good Live team member Paul Jakubowski and taking Greg's place delivering the news is Mille Vardheim. 


Our special guest to talk about the news this week is Sarah Peña, Head of Emerging Technology & Business Improvement at Swindon Borough Council. Tune in next week when we will be chatting to her in more detail about her work.

 Ethical shopping on the rise in UK despite cost of living crisis - The Guardian

Bad news story of the week:

And finally
