Этичное потребление как инновационная практика гражданского общества в России

In recent years, developed countries are increasingly debating about ethical consumption as a counteraction of civil society to the expansion of unsavory business practices which cause significant damage to the environment, people and animals. The ethical consumer practices are also gradually beginning to penetrate in developing countries which have weak civil society. The article presents the results of the first representative study of ethical consumption in Russia as an innovative practice of civil society. Factors affecting the inclusion of the Russians in the ethical consumer practices have been identified using the binary logit regression. It is shown that different types of civic activism outside the ethical consumption play an important role, but it is not а key factor. It is concluded that the development of ethical consumption can be a catalyst for the development of civil society in Russia.
