ABOUT FAIR SQUARED
What do you get if two people meet and find they share the same values, if their hearts and minds communicate on the same wavelength?
FAIRNESS – QUALITY – ORGANIC – VEGAN
For Oliver and Salvatore it took a bar in east London, a sidewalk cafe in Cologne, considerable time on the phone and a little over nine months until Fair Squared matured from an idea to an up and running business.
With Oliver and Salvatore expect surprises, maverick ideas and two guys who after a moment’s hesitation say: Let’s go for it.
But with Oliver and Salvatore you also have ground rules: Fair Squared will be true to its values – because ultimately without those values Fair Squared wouldn’t exist:
Fair Squared not only uses fairly traded ingredients whenever possible. We actively look to broaden the Fair Squared range to include more fairly traded produce. And we will promote Fair Trade wherever we can. Examples? Oliver is an unpaid board member of Fair Rubber, the only organisation world wide promoting Fair Trade in rubber and latex products.
Feel good factor and quality:
We appreciate that you share our concern over the living and working conditions in many parts of the world and are committed to buying Fair Trade products. But we think you also deserve the best product we are capable of making. It should feel good, protect you and pamper you. We only source the best ingredients for our product range. But it’s not just about those inherent values – we’re into design too. Come on, if it’s good, why shouldn’t it look good too?
We want you to like what you see when you glance at a Fair Squared product in your bathroom or take it out of your handbag. And it’s certainly not about fancy, and wasteful packaging. What we’re after is an excellent product in a beautifully designed and functional container.
Organic – good for you and good for the environment:
We are committed to you, our customers, and we’re committed to our producers. To us a vital part of this commitment is the environment: Safeguarding resources like soil and water, enhancing biodiversity and ensuring sustainable methods of production. In short: What we really want is for all our products to be certified organic – and we’re working on it.
We are already using certified organic olive oil. Our latex comes from FSC-certified rubber plantations. And we promote environmental protection through Fairtrade. In recognition of the fact that sustainability and environmental protection are vital for the wellbeing of producers Fairtrade standards have evolved. Today Fairtrade is not only about paying a Fairtrade premium: Within the Fairtrade framework expert work with the producers towards achieving environmental protection, sustainability and – as a long-term goal – organic certification.
We never test our products on animals.
We are Vegan Society registered. And we are working on making all Fair Squared products vegan. We are not quite there yet, for example there are tiny amounts of a milk-based protein used in the production of some of our condoms, but we’ve come up with a way to change that.
And we are thinking about lots more vegan products. At present being vegan still often means hard choices between your conscience and a product you may like. At Fair Squared we want you to feel wonderful, be true to your vegan conviction and have less hassle: our face care and lip balm ranges are 100% vegan already.
And for the future…
… Oliver and Salvatore are looking at everything in bathroom, bedroom and beyond. Very soon you will be able to buy Fair Squared candles made from soy oil and a range of body oils made from sustainably grown palm oil. So watch this space.
