Why buy FAIR/SQUARE?

why fair?

At FAIR/SQUARE, we believe that business is about more than just making money. We want to prove that it is possible to run a business that only sells responsibly made products and that our choices matter.

We also believe in leading by example. That’s why we bank with a credit union, host with a green hosting company, use only recycled shipping materials and offset our carbon emissions. We also donate 1% of our revenues to environmental non-profits via 1% For The Planet™.

why vegan?

Veganism isn’t just a trend or marketing gimmick – it reflects our ethics, and desire for a greener and more sustainable future. And with the quality and number of new vegan products coming out every single day, we are spoilt for choice.

By making vegan, cruelty-free, and plant based products more accessible, we can help people to transition to a more responsible and healthy lifestyle.

why canadian?

There are a ton of great Canadian businesses with fair and ethical business practices that make awesome products. There is simply no need to buy things from manufacturers in the US, Europe or elsewhere.

And, buying Canadian supports businesses in our fellow Canadian communities, and leaves out all that global shipping.

What do we do for the planet?

1 % for the planet - one percent for the planet

Carbon-neutral shipping

We work exclusively with Canadian companies, only sell in Canada and only use recycled shipping materials, so overall our CO2 emissions are pretty low. But we want to do more!

That’s why we joined Carbonfund.org to offset our shipping-based CO2 emissions. Carbonfund.org supports third-party validated renewable energy, energy efficiency and reforestation projects that reduce carbon dioxide emissions and the threat of climate change.

Green website hosting with GreenGeeks

GREEN WEBSITE HOSTING

We host FAIR/SQUARE with GreenGeeks, the world’s #1 green energy web hosting provider. Many of us are not aware of it, but by 2020, the web hosting industry is set to surpass the airline industry in environmental pollution!

That’s why we decided to go with GreenGeeks. They work with environmental foundations to purchase wind energy credits to put back into the grid three times (3X) the amount of energy they consume.
