"Switching our power was incredibly simple and quick. Ethical Switch had all the facts and within 5 minutes we had a new electricity provider that we felt we could trust in terms of environmental impact and pricing. Ethical Switch saved us money and time and gave us peace of mind by doing all of the hard work for us."
"...seriously, it took me only 5 minutes to save money AND do my bit towards the planet by swapping to a more ethical power supplier. What can I ethically switch to next???"
"Switching to a better product couldn't get any easier! In a few simple clicks I was all set up with a new energy provider. And the best part is that you get that provider to make a donation to a good cause just because you've made the switch!"
Ethical Switch began because we noticed something. No matter how hard we try, the task of consuming ethically is difficult and time-consuming. Our purpose is to help busy people discover companies that align better with their personal values.
Through our research, we empower consumers with the information needed to make their ethical choices. We then provide a simple, online and fast switch.
Our focus is with core household spending –electricity, superannuation and soon to be released, banking! Choosing more ethical providers can vastly reduce personal carbon footprints and helps reward companies that are doing better business.
Unlike other comparison websites, we only offer switches to companies that rate more highly across a range of ethical considerations. We also made sure that a vast portion of our profits go to our charity partners - every time somebody makes a switch, we donate.
Based in Melbourne, we were incubated by a group of passionate volunteers in 2014. The heart of our business is to empower our awesome not-for-profit partners and that's why we donate over 90% of our profits!

We hope you enjoy our service and that after you've made your first switch you'll agree that switching never felt better.
