...& MAKE IT A STATEMENT!
Why it's all about these
Even IF EVERY lifestyle product would be offset with the 50ct, the garment workers would depend on donations. For real, long-term change, we have to fix the underlying problem.

Transparency is crucial. Read here what happens to your money, to your data, how we protect it - and find out a bit more about the team.
About Transparency - & Us
BACKGROUND: ABOUT THE FASHION INDUSTRY
Did you know, that in this industry, the companies CANNOT set higher wages? Do you know how the living wage is calculated? Do you know why the Rana Plaza victims really lost their lives, livelihoods and loved ones?
MAKE A DIFFERENCE...
(About the donations)
0,50€. For you, a tip. For a garment worker, the difference to a living wage. So, make that difference. Tip your garment worker.
Where the money goes
AN APP FOR
We may not want - or be able - to spend a fortune on fashion (or lifestyle) products, but we DO CARE about the workers' wellbeing and ARE WILLING to bear the costs for the payment of living wages - these are on average 50 cents per item.
With FairBuy we make this our statement (and add credibility by forwarding the money!) to encourage the fashion companies to make their statements, too - that is, to pledge to pay living wages. This is necessary to enable unions to negotiate higher wages (or governments, to fix higher minimum wages) without having to fear the loss of their customers, and thereby of their jobs altogether.
