BuyFair App

KNOW WHAT YOU'RE BUYING

KNOW WHAT YOU'RE BUYING

The BuyFair app will be released in two phases. In Phase I, users can join others and petition their favorite brands to disclose more information about their supply chains. In Phase II, once the information is received, the brands will be rated to assess the risk of modern slavery and labour exploitation existing in their supply chains. We have now released beta versions on both Android and iOS, and hope to make the app publicly available for download by May 2018. If you want to sign-up to access an early reel.

PUTTING ON THE PRESSURE

Companies that provide responses are graded A to F on their supply chains to allow app users to avoid buying products that use forced labour. If you scan the barcode of a product that is not in the database, people can back your request for supply chain information, and after reaching 50 signatures the company will be sent a pettion.

LET THEM HEAR IT!

After the petition is sent, the company will have 90 days to respond and pr vide the requested supply chain information. Upon their response, their pr file will be created in the app's database. Should the company not respond, the social aspect of the app will spread the message on all social platforms that that company is not disclosing certain information about its supply chain. The social networks of users will be encouraged to help pressure these companies to be more transparent about their supply chains.

ETHICAL BUYING

With our response, we hope companies will see the benefit of ensuring the products we love are ethically and responsibly sourced. As our database is built users will be able to make better decisions using the app's recommendations regarding products made ethically. Transparency is key, and that is how we hope to clean up supply chains with the BuyFair app.
