Ellis was a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Republic of Panama from 1993 to 1995 where he worked in Environmental Education.
As an author, he is known for highlighting the necessity to pay attention to the available products, the companies producing them, and not supporting those that continue to have bad practice. In his book The Better World Shopping Guide: Every Dollar Makes A Difference, he rates manufacturers and stores on a grading scale of A to F as to their overall goodness, on how they affect the community, how they give back, any chemicals that are involved in their testing, how they treat their employees, how green they are, their effect on the environment, where their resources are from, whether it is a country that practices child labor.
