Name of the sustainable initiative
At Fair Green we put forward responsible consumption and production of promotional products and giveaways across Europe.
Fair Green in an e-commerce platform distributor of eco-friendly promotional products and giveaways. What is meant by 'eco-friendly' is that we focus solely on items made from 85% of recycled materials or sustainable plant fibers in addition to being transparent about our business practices and our products (Code of Conduct, disclosure of materials, manufacturing location of products, etc.).
By sourcing products almost exclusively in Europe (Poland, Italy, Germany, the UK), using AZO free dyes and focusing solely on items either made from 85% recycled materials (recycled tires, recycled CD cases, 'recycled leather', etc.) or 85% sustainably sourced plant fibers (timber, organic cotton, jute, sugar cane, etc.), we challenge the status quo in the promotional product industry which are, most of the time, made form virgin materials, are disposable items and, in 80% of the case, made in China. We are truly different from our direct competitor because of our strict selection criteria. The criteria are the following: items should be made from at least 85% of recycled materials or sustainably sourced plant fibers, they should be produced in Europe with an exception: when the raw material from which the product is made has to be sourced outside of Europe, such as sugar cane or jute, I would rather have that product made in the same country from which the raw material was sourced. This allows to reduce transport and therefore CO2 emission during all the stages the raw material and the product would have to be shipped in order to become a final product. However, when sourcing product outside Europe, additional certifications and audits are requested to make sure working conditions are respected and that the manufacturing process is environmentally sustainable. Lastly, we are in the process of collaborating with a company that will allow us to calculate the CO2 imprint of each of our products and compensate these emissions by sponsoring CO2 offsetting projects.
