One of the major ethical arguments against online shopping is the damage it causes the high street and, specifically, local shops. Thankfully a number of companies are gradually offsetting those evils. Hubbub, an online delivery service for local independent shops in London, was set up just over a year ago by Marisa Leaf, a former barrister with a pretty gung-ho dislike for Tesco. It works thus: you pick out what you want from a slew of local shops, and for £3.50 a man in a van delivers it to your house after work, a sort of posh meals-on-wheels meets Ocado. It started in Islington and has since progressed to Hackney. By this time next year it plans to be all over London, and in five years all over the UK and, says Leaf, has already earned "tens of thousands in revenue for local businesses".
