Ethical Decisions: Make From Scratch

Following on nicely from my last few posts, my next big ethical decision is making from scratch.

It's easy to get bogged down by the lingo and walk into a shop not really knowing what to expect. So I've put together a little glossary of terms which will probably get extended and added to over time to include new terminology I learn as I'm going along!
