Being fair to people and the environment is at the core of what we do

The Fair Corporation (formerly Fair Deal Trading UK) is a new and innovative ethical website that offers you a range of Fairtrade, organic, eco and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified products, all based on organic cotton and natural rubber. Many of our products were world eco and Fairtrade firsts.

The story behind the Fair Corporation

Sri Lankan Rubber Tappers
The rubber tappers in Sri Lanka, whose rubber we use to manufacture our products are supported by a Fair Trade project. We pay a Fair Trade premium of 0.50 EUR per KG of rubber tapped, which in turn is paid to a Fair Trade Welfare Society, which consists of the rubber tappers and their managers. They meet to agree how the money should be best spent in their villages. Already this Fair Trade premium has provided rubber tapper’s homes with safe and clean running water, health insurance for them and their families and a fund to pay for children’s education. All our rubber is FSC certified, meaning it is sourced from a responsibly managed plantation.

Indian Organic Cotton Famers
The organic cotton used in ETHLETIC trainers is sourced from a Fairtrade certified project in India. Farmers are paid a fair wage by the Fair Trade project for growing the cotton crops. Growing crops is a lengthy process and often small families struggle to keep up with its demands or can’t pay for extra help. Fairtrade premiums have so far paid for the construction of a warehouse for storing the organic cotton, allowing farmers to ensure that as much of the crop is collected as possible, so it is less likely to be damaged by floods or pests. Weighing scales for the crops have also been provided and the project plans to buy a TV for group entertainment.

Pakistan ETHLETIC Producers
ETHLETIC trainers are produced in a factory in Pakistan. Here the Fair Trade Welfare Society has decided to spend their premium on a medical project. The Society provides producers and their families with health care, which is costly in Pakistan. These include providing expenses for travel to and from the medical centres and any follow up treatments, which may be needed. Another project of the Welfare Society is to provide producer’s children in education with a free schoolbag including notebooks, pencils etc. Both of these are supported and financed by Fair Trade premiums – paid for by each and every pair of ETHLETIC trainers.
