About Equita:

equita (Italian for fairness) is a design-conscious boutique showcasing the latest in green, sweatshop-free and Fair Trade essentials for the body and home. Our line includes: men’s and women’s designer apparel; home furnishings; kitchen and bath; jewelry and handbags; bodycare; baby clothing and toys; sport and wellness gear; and specialty gourmet treats.

Some rules are not meant to be broken, especially those that attempt to restore equality and dignity between peoples and the planet. equita believes that regulations and effective oversight in production and trade can have a meaningful impact. We go to great lengths to ensure that the products we sell adhere to the standards set by the major certifying and regulatory bodies that oversee the organic, green, and ethical/Fair Trade industries.

We proudly source quality designed, functional products from green/ethical companies and Fair Trade cooperatives in over 40 developing countries, as well as Native American enterprises, women’s initiatives, family farms and unionized businesses in North America.

No need anymore to compromise quality, taste and social and environmental responsibility.
Do you well. Share your ethics.

Their Mission: Playing Fair

“Quality design. Functionality. Social and environmental responsibility.
Our aim at equita is to make ethical living practical and accessible. To accomplish this we developed a strict set of criteria that guides us through our product selection. It enables us to seek out well designed, functional, environmentally sound and fairly traded products with the confidence necessary to gain and maintain the trust of discerning customers. In addition, we are committed to showcasing the selection with editorial attention, ensuring that the product and project information provided is accurate and prominent, as well as creating a distinctive online shopping experience.

equita is a principle-driven company committed to pragmatic solutions that support environmental preservation and sustainable social and economic development. We fully endorse the Fair Trade principles set by the International Fair Trade Federation, in particular the establishment of equitable long-term partnerships with producer communities and projects.

Our product selection criteria on design, social and environmental responsiblity is also applied to all other areas of the company. We feel strongly that if we dare to subject the people who make the products we sell to high standards of sustainability, we in turn must make every effort to match their commitment.

We want to play a part in the movement for change. Come along.”
