From Striding Out's website:

Our panel of Ethical PR, Marketing and Branding experts will share their tips on how you can effectively promote your ethical business in today's competitive environment!

We are looking for five ethical entrepreneurs to put forward their website for review!

Businesses are catching on to the fact that consumers are responding to companies with social and environmential credentials, so how do you effectively implement sustainable business practices and promote the triple bottom line authentically to avoid the greenwash!

Panelists include:-
