U.S. Ethical Shopping Guide

Electronic Accessories

I wish I could say that below you could find shopping links for ethical electronics.  Unfortunately, to date,

I have been unable to find any such thing.  (Go to our "Electronic Sweatshops" page to learn more.)  But the good news is for the electronics you already own, there are now options for ethically-made and fair trade messenger bags, tablet sleeves, cell phone holders, laptop bags and more!  And, in contrast to the electronics industry and their sweatshops, these products were produced with love and care shown to the artisans who made them.

(NOTES: This is a shopping guide so prices and availability can change without notice.  If you buy through some of these links, a small amount may come back to help support the mission of Change the World by How You Shop.)
