A 100 percent vegan gift basket service has made its debut in Canada as part of a new online store's offerings.
Visitors at fair-square.ca can choose from 14 different gift baskets stuffed with vegan and cruelty-free products - all made in Canada.
Gift baskets have specific themes such as the 'Chocolate Lover XL Basket' and the 'Wellness & Relax Basket'.
FAIR/SQUARE also offers two gluten-free baskets, one filled with snacking products, and one specializing in breakfast products.
Founder and owner of FAIR/SQUARE Katharina Otulak says: "Vegan options from regular gift basket companies are often sub-par, and consist of little more than a variety of dried fruits at an inflated price.
"We want to show that there is more to vegan gifting than dried dates and figs. Our gift baskets contain an amazing selection of vegan chocolates, fairtrade tea, and cruelty-free skincare products, just to name a few."
The company, which curates vegan products from socially and environmentally conscious Canadian companies, uses gift boxes that are reusable and recyclable.
Customers can also pick a card, add a personal note, and choose a preferred delivery date when ordering gift baskets.
The concept store donates one percent of its annual sales to environmental nonprofits, as part of a one percent For The Planet intitiative.
