Please order now and make the world a better place and show the world and the mobile vendors that you care for more than OS, Features and screens.

Let's hope the big vendors follow suit.

Yes, I hope this will be an important factor in the future.

I'd say this is an intresting concept, given that lots of people are into fair-trade goods. I have to confess I myself buy only fair-trade coffee and tend to also buy other imported foodstuffs as fair-trade if available.

How is the visibility going to be verified, would there be need for an organization certifying fair-trade electronics

On another trend, as I also am into local grown food [I don't really know what's the english term, in finnish it is "lähiruoka" which means supporting your neighbourhood farmers or growing your own groceries (and animals too...)]
Would there be popular demand for "local grown phones" also?

With 3D printing, you may be able to be as local as your house. Its funny how trends transcend borders, buy local is a theme that many restaurants in US use as advertising gimmick.....

The English term is... "locally grown food" It is curious that a language that likes creating acronyms for everything has not come up with a single word for this.

I used to prefer buying local products of any kind over imported. Not just food, but also cosmetics and other stuff, including cars and electronics if available. Somehow it also turned out cheaper. But then I moved to the UK and to my surprise found much less choice. You can buy about 10 varieties of Procter&Gamble washing powder but nothing else. This country is more in the grip of large corporations who push the prices down by enforcing such uniformity.
