Avani is of Sanskrit origin and means “Earth” –
we chose this name as our motivation is to contribute to the wellbeing of our planet.
We want to offer an easy to use online marketplace for companies to sell their eco-friendly articles and create awareness towards consumers that there is a broad range of environment-friendly goods and services available that have a positive impact on our planet.
By providing this online marketplace we want to make sure that we have a satisfying relationship with all our partners. Therefore, our key values are:
- Honest collaboration
This means for all our partners – business & customers- that we do business on mutual trust, integrity and honesty. We want to ensure that all participants receive the desired outcome according to their wishes and demands as Avani stands for simplicity, consciousness, eco-friendly, trusted partnership and impact the world in a positive way.
Our goal is to offer various eco-friendly goods and services at one glance as we want to bring together several environment-friendly companies and brands on our platform to create a cooperative environment.
By visiting our marketplace customers can choose between a diverse range of carefully selected goods and services – followingly, customers do not have to spend time anymore on browsing through several websites while searching for environment-friendly articles and services.
To ensure an easy shopping experience for our customers we defined criterias so that they can be sure that they are going to buy planet-earth-friendly articles.
Our criteria for our partners in order to sell their goods and services on our marketplace are the following:
– Ethical value chain
We make sure that our partners know what is happening in their supply chain and that this knowledge is communicated internally and externally.
We secure that the articles that are sold via this marketplace are fairly produced and manufactured – meaning that our partners are transparent about their fair working conditions, know how and where the product is produced and are aware of the origin of their materials/ ingredients.
– Made out of recycled or natural materials
Recycled products are made from material that otherwise would have been discarded or disposed of as solid waste. That means that these products are made totally or partially from material which was recycled.
- present in or produced by nature
- plant, mineral or microbial ingredients
- produced using minimal physical processing
- directly extracted using simple methods, simple chemical reactions or resulting from naturally occurring biological processes
– Cruelty free – not tested on animals
‘cruelty-free’ refers to products that are not tested on animals
– Low in waste
Under low in waste it is signified that our partners eliminate the generation of waste while producing or manufacturing the product to a minimum. The generation of waste can be lowered through a variety of options, including reducing, reusing, recycling, or taking appropriate actions to prevent waste through design and engineering solutions.
– Fair & Social
By fair & social we mean that to companies and producers – especially in developing countries- fair prices are paid as well as employees and the environment are protected. This conveys that the trading partnerships of our brands are based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equality in (international-) trade as well as trading conditions securing the rights of producers and workers. All of the products made by our brands support good causes with every sale.
