Consumerium - Enhancing Consumer Informedness - Kuluttajien voimaannuttamista jo vuodesta 2002
Welcome, newcomers to our set of 1,163 Consumerium Effort development wiki articles crafted in the spirit of our philosophy where fairtrade, political consumerism, copyleft, free software, moral purchasing, consumer activism and shareholder activism are close to the core.Our intent is to provide services for which we need infrastructure built with technologies.
Consumerium itself is a not-for-profit effort to enable display of product information to consumers and feedback to the producers to enhance the consumer experience and to keep this planet as hospitable as possible.
We are collaborating under the GFDL license, to design a healthy buying infrastructure. We are identifying hardware requirements for storage, transport and display of varying levels of product information to consumers and feedback to producers at the point of purchase to enhance the consumer experience, advance product development and to keep this planet as hospitable as possible.
How Consumerium differs from Wikipedia in a nutshell - a timeless classic from 2004
“Ethical consumerism is a type of consumer activism that is based on the concept of dollar voting. It is practiced through 'positive buying' in that ethical products are favoured, or 'moral boycott', that is negative purchasing and company-based purchasing.”

Use [[w:Fairtrade]] to link to Wikipedia's article on fairtrade and [[w:fr:Commerce équitable]] to link to the article in the French Wikipedia as simple as that. ( works for all languages, just insert the correct lang code ). Avoid unnecessary replicating, we're in the GFDL part of the world after all :)
