This Month’s Charities

We’re donating to three charities every month and our customers can choose which charity they would like Ethical State to give £1 per basket to (adding an extra £1 per £50 spent). You don’t have to pay anything extra, making it easy to do good.

We select these charities based on what we think you need to know about. As well as the contribution from each of your purchases, we’re looking to raise the profile of the causes that deserve your attention – because we can’t solve problems we don’t know about.

Tree Aid

Tree Aid works closely with the rural communities in West Africa and Ethiopia who are facing a daily struggle to make ends meet under the threat of desertification and drought. They work to protect and restore forests so as to slow down the effects of climate change and secure a live-able landscape for the millions of people who depend on forests. Trees mean clean air, water, shade and life for many across the African continent, as well as reinvigorating the Earth with nutrients that combat desertification. 

Climate & Migration Coalition

The climate crisis will spark a displacement and migration crisis like none we have ever seen before, and everyone has the right to flee disaster safely and legally. The Climate & Migration Coalition fights for humane and empowering policies that will protect people who are displaced by the impacts of climate change. Their goal is to ensure a people-centred policy response at the national and international level by building support for policies that allow people to strengthen their capacity for survival through migration. They also fight to ensure adequate assistance and protection for people displaced internally and across borders as a consequence of slow and sudden onset disasters.
