w:Copyleft, totally a thing to do with all said to the right of this graphic. In Finnish it is w:fi:käyttäjänoikeus which translates to "user's right"

Consumerium itself is a not-for-profit effort to enable display of product information to consumers and feedback to producers and their owners in all countries of the world to enhance the consumer experience and to keep this planet as hospitable as possible. To this end Consumerium is compiling information on the countries of the world, technologies, convenience services for the consumer and more.

Our intent is to provide a knowledge graph and services for which we need infrastructure built with technologies.

The Consumerium development wiki turns 20 on Friday 2023-02-24 Fri Feb 24 2023 00:52:00 GMT +0000.

Welcome, newcomers to our set of 1,173 Consumerium Effort development wiki articles crafted in the spirit of our philosophy where fairtrade, human rights in business, political consumerism, copyleft, free software, moral purchasing, w:consumer activism and w:shareholder activism are close to the core.

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.

Human rights and business


Ethical consumerism is a type of consumer activism that is based on the concept of w: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.”

  1. The translation from Consumerium to Kuluttajisto was done by a bloke, whose name I cannot recall, on the ATTAC Finland bus trip to the Second European Social Forum 2003 in Paris by the time we had reached w:Töölö

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 w:the correct lang code ). Avoid unnecessary replicating, we're in the GFDL part of the world after all :)
