Do-Good Virtual Marketplaces for Conscientious Online Shoppers
Implications - When it comes to shopping, making an eco-friendly or socially beneficial decision isn't always easy. Many physical retailers have introduced new product categories and sections in their shops that focus on environmental or social good, but for the busy individual, getting to these specific products (when life pulls them in different directions) can be difficult. Making the consumption of ethical goods easier is the rise of online marketplaces dedicated to social causes ranging from the planet to Third World poverty. Now, conscientious consumers can shop easily and conveniently from the comfort of their own homes or mobile devices, with the assurance that their purchases are for the betterment of society.
