Eco products 'continue to gain popularity'

Eco products Eco products which make ethical or organic claims are continuing to gain new customers and increased sales despite the recent recession, it is suggested.

Dan Welch, co-editor of Ethical Consumer Magazine, notes the growing popularity of eco products - and adds that this applies across a number of categories and not only in the organic food market.

Rather, he points out that the Co-operative Bank Ethical Consumerism Report, the "authoritative annual barometer of the market", covers food, travel, finance and household products.

"Consumer spending on ethical products and services has bucked the recession and grown by almost a fifth over the past two years," he says.

This saw the sector grow in value from £36.5 billion in 2007 to £43.2 billion in 2009.

In its 2009 Ethical Consumerism Report, the Co-operative Bank noted that the total market for ethical products expanded threefold in the decade leading up to that year.ADNFCR-2539-ID-800338317-ADNFCR
