Bona Fide has developed icons which allow you to quickly identify each product's eco-attributes. Each unique icon includes our own definition as an educational component to your shopping experience. This increases your awareness about how to be a conscious consumer and how the products you buy impact the environment. You may also "shop by icon" as another method of locating products with a specific eco-attribute.
Products with the icon "socially responsible" are produced by groups or companies who strive to implement fair labor practices that provide workers an opportunity to earn a living wage, a safe and healthy working environment, and reasonable work hours while prohibiting child and slave labor. Many industrious small groups and cooperatives manage their own affairs and produce quality products, often for export. These groups are sometimes too small or can not afford the expense of fair trade certifications, but may still uphold many of the same socially responsible standards. Large companies may use SA8000 standards or their own equivalent socially responsible policies to support their workers' labor conditions. This icon is used for products manufactured outside of the USA.
