The aim of the Fair Rubber Association is the expansion and application of the concept of Fair Trade for products made from natural rubber. In the Fair Rubber Association, companies engaged in rubber products, Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs), and individuals work together. The ultimate aim of the Association is to thereby contribute to an improvement of the working and living conditions of the primary producers of natural latex (rubber), as well as promote the environmentally friendly production natural rubber, as chemical free production first and foremost benefits those engaged in the cultivation of the natural rubber.
The most important instrument of Fair Rubber is the Fair Rubber logo for products which fulfill the criteria of Fair Trade in natural rubber. The Fair Rubber Association in particular ensures the payment of the Fair Trade premium by buyers of natural rubber. The primary producers of rubber decide themselves how the Fair Trade premium is spent. Fair Rubber also helps, if requested, producer partners with FSC® certification.
