On the other hand, if you want educated, affluent, informed and eager people who care about what they buy and actively choose to support businesses, products and services that are free from exploitation then Red Pepper is the place to find them.
So, if you are looking to flog no-sweat clothes and shoes, fair trade chocolate, ethical mortgages, organic box schemes, books, green gadgets and so on, you could do a lot worse than advertise with us. Our readers are committed, loyal consumers who favour companies and products like yours - we think you will be very pleased with the results if you choose to advertise with us.
We are also a pretty good bet for campaign groups, NGOs, educational establishments and others who want to find the ideal market for their events and conferences, course advertising or to ask for donations.
Our readers are bright, passionate about the world and actively making conscious choices to support your kind of business or cause.
Exploitation goes both ways. We won't rip you off or give you some nonsensical advertising spiel - just fair rates (with discounts for not-for-profit concerns and small business advertisers) and the chance to reach your target market.
