Problem is, there's no such thing as being an ethical consumer in Capitalist-dominated society. You buy free trade coffee, because you don't like the idea of slave labor being used so you can have your morning cup of joe? Chances are the company selling you the free trade brand is owned by a company who will happily buy coffee often harvested by child labor. It all tangles together. Do what you can to minimize the harm you do, but again, there's no such thing as ethical consumerism.
