Hello ethical movers!

Over the past year, our team has grown and shifted. As a result, our work has both deepened and accelerated.

In our most recent meeting, we looked back. We celebrated the fact that over 340 people have chosen to take the ethical move pledge. We celebrated our new website, new processes and systems, and even our new privacy and cookie policy.

We also celebrated each one of you! 🎉 Thank you for being here with us, for reading and sharing our content, and for being part of the conversation.

Over the next month, members of our team are taking some time to rest, work on our own businesses, and get ready to return to our ethical move work in September.

You’ll see a bit less content coming from us, but we will be back soon! 🏖

the ethical move news.

When the world shouts “hurry up, be faster!”, we say: “no, thank you”. Because we believe in doing things differently.

We believe in building things to last. We believe in thinking before acting. We believe in growing sustainably.

This is what is happening right now as we do the foundational work for ‘The Ethical Move Community’. We are having conversations about how we will communicate within the membership, what our guiding principles will be and how conversations will be facilitated.

from our blog.

Inspired by saying “no” to the glorification of busy, Karen has written an article called Switching Off As a Radical Act.

While digital tools have allowed our intercontinental team to work effectively, we know that too much screen time benefits nobody. Despite this knowledge, many of us remain glued to screen – especially those of us who are business owners.

The oppressive systems in which we operate tell us there’s not enough for everyone.

That if we’re not quick enough our opportunities will be taken from us. That resting – taking our eye off the digital ball – will cause us harm. But in the process, are we losing our connection with ourselves and our wellbeing?

As our team take a short break, we’d like to hear from you: how do you prioritise your digital wellbeing?

our pledgee highlights.

I am making the ethical move because too much stuff is sold that does not make anybody happy.
– Moritz Orendt,
We’re tired of customers being treated poorly. Dark patterns are everywhere and the status quo rewards businesses that go after the quick wins instead of the right wins. We believe the ethical move isn’t just the right thing to do, there are strong benefits to operating an ethical business.
– Dave Smyth,
