Dr. BronnersConsumerAffairs Unaccredited Brand
Somehow seems to remain ethical. Such a widespread business that still keeps its costs low and doesn't bully itself into other markets... other countries, yes. But so far, they haven't bought out or underpriced competitors in other industries, from what I can tell. They claim to operate by a model where the wealthiest owners of the business don't earn more than 5 times their lowest paid employees. There might be some loopholes in here - probably are, like paid travel and perks - but it's still inspirational and highly unique.

Fluoride-free toothpaste: The company's anise, peppermint, and cinnamon toothpastes are fluoride-free, do not have artificial ingredients and come in recyclable packaging.
