Balu is an incredible new app that helps you discover hundreds of ethical and sustainable products.
While you shop, Balu searches its database for the very best ethical brands and lets you know your options. Then it’s up to you what you buy.
Balu does not ask you to stop searching with Google, or expect you to steer clear of the large e-commerce sites like Amazon, Argos and ASOS. Instead, you can continue to shop as you always have, safe in the knowledge that Balu will let you know what else is out there.
Balu gives a fair voice to hard working, industry-changing companies that simply can’t compete with the web dominance of the global brands.
There are so many companies working tirelessly to change the way their industry works. They are pioneering new techniques to create and reuse products, in a way that does not harm people or degrade our world.
But in our busy lives, we rely on powerful search engines and colossal distributors. And all too often the results they return force us to compromise on our values.
Balu was born out of frustration with this compromise.
Balu are a non-profit with a single aim: place the most sustainable, responsibly-sourced products side by side with the mainstream, so consumers can make their own decisions about what to buy.
