The Fairphone Wants to Start a Movement on Ethical Smartphone Manufacturing 

Fairphone is a “seriously cool smartphone that puts social values first”. Its the first smartphone to really focus on fair trade and social ethics - something that Apple is consistently under the limelight for.

They have lofty ambitions to change the way that tech products, like smartphones, are made - and I commend them for it. 

Here is what makes Fairphone so ethical:

Fairphone is crowd funding their first run themselves on their website. At the time of this article, they have already sold 2,383 with 20 days left towards their 5,000 goal. Fairphone requires 5,000 orders before they can begin production.
