A Gift that Gives

Fair + Simple

A simple concept with large impacts, Fair + Simple has taken gift giving to a new level. Created by Molly Acord,  this give back business is easy to use, and offers your recipient choice on the perfect gift for their life, all while supporting the talented artisans behind the products. Fair + Simple has all of your friends covered - men, women, travelers, fashionistas, and knowing all items curated are providing fair wages to impoverished workers it will be hard not to give. So- how does this work? Purchase a {$40} Fair + Simple Card - Give to Friend - They Redeem - They Receive! Pretty simple, right?

I redeemed my Fair + Simple Card for the Matr Boomie Leather Map Journal made from sustainable leather {from naturally deceased animals} and cotton paper in Rajasthan. The leather is tanned using vegetable oil, and is dyed with water based dyes. Since cows are sacred in this region of India, they die of old age, and then their hides are treated naturally and made into lovely products {like this notebook}. The cotton paper is made from discarded cotton scraps from the textile industry, and can be replaced after you have written your 'note' novel! I'm a big notetaker myself - especially when traveling - so I'm very excited to take this with me on my trip to England next month! The words "Miles to go.." on the front of the journal really resonate with me. It's true.. there are many more miles I need to explore.

From jewelry to soccer balls, there isn't someone Fair + Simple has missed. Ready to give a gift the gives? You can purchase either a Digital Gift Card or a Physical Card. Cards are $40 with Free Shipping Included, and can be redeemed on any single item from the responsibly curated selection.

I love an inspiring mission statement, so I wanted to leave you with theirs - 

The mission of Fair and Simple is to provide a platform for people to shop and give responsibly through a collaboration of like minded companies who focus on business as a tool for social change. If it wasn’t for that drive, they wouldn’t be a company. They are icons of doing business in a different way, a way that gives back to people and our common home.
