The ethics of partnership

Want to go kayaking for free?



Greenkayak, an environmental nonprofit, will set you loose with a free kayak to explore the waterways of Denmark.


There's just one condition. In addition to a life vest, paddle, and kayak, they also outfit you with a trash picker and bucket. You pay for your ride by helping clean up the canal.


Part of being ethical is making it easier for other people to act ethically. It's easier to do the right thing with a little encouragement, and once we start developing good habits we find that good behavior comes more and more naturally.


Have you helped someone else act more ethically? Has someone helped you? Tell you story in the comment section, along with your own ethics sightings.


The more we hear stories of others doing good, the more we want to do good ourselves.
