Good Market Principles

Good Market principles include: Make the Road by Walking; Support Transparency; Think Ecosystem; Hold the Space; Celebrate the Process. These principles speak deeply to our team and business model at Green Banana Paper. As a purpose-driven social enterprise, we strive for transparency throughout our entire manufacturing process from jungle to pocket. This includes transparency with subsistence farmers from whom we purchase post-harvest banana trees, our employees, and our customers worldwide. 
 
SUPPORT TRANSPARENCY
Many traditional business models are based on proprietary information. Companies hide details on their suppliers, keep ingredients and sources secret, and sign exclusivity agreements. Purpose-driven enterprises have business models based on providing service or adding value rather than the control of information or intellectual property. An ethical company gives people all of the information they need and lets them make their own decisions. ​Considering the scale and urgency of the global challenges we face, Good Market favors transparency and the open exchange of information. Sharing information improves learning, builds trust and relationships, and speeds the rate of change.
