einhorn’s vision: to make a fair and sustainable condom by reinvesting 50% of the profits in non-profit projects, like youth sexual education and the fair pay of rubber farmers.   “Because to simply claim that we’re 100% fairstainable from the beginning would be complete greenwashing,” so founder Zeiler.  einhorn condoms are just as safe as those available from other competitors and are an optical highlight.  The packaging mirrors a chips bag and features  pictures and illustrations donated by well-known artists and photographers like Berliner photographer and photoblogger Oliver Rath, Heji Shin, Sandra Bayer, or André Wagner.

We chose the unicorn as a namesake.  For it is the most noble of all mythological creatures and represents, without exception, all that is good.  By choosing einhorn condoms, you stand for exactly that: for good sex, for a good conscience, and good taste.  Just like our company motto: “make magic happen.”

To take one big step to realizing our goal, we are launching a crowdfunding campaign TODAY.  With successful financing, we plan to fund a cooperative with German scientists in order to create a “Fairstainable Seal” to establish worldwide standards for the sustainable cultivation of rubber and for working conditions on rubber plantations.

einhorn is one of the first social ventures originating from the Entrepreneur’s Pledge.

The Entrepreneur‘s Pledge is a commitment by sustainable thinking entrepreneurs

to dedicate their entrepreneurial gift to found at least one business that will reduce environmental and social harm to a minimum and invest at least 50% of the profits into a social or environmental cause.

Why

Because entrepreneurs have the power to change the unsustainable development of the economy by applying their entrepreneurial gift.

The Problem

The current economic development with its dominant outdated goal to optimize shareholder value has led to an unsatisfactory and unsustainable situation, which needs to be changed.

The Solution

Call upon the Entrepreneur’s responsibility to create companies & products which optimize all stakeholders’ values as a proof-of-concept for the whole economy.

 Relation to the Giving Pledge

The Giving Pledge is a wonderful initiative by the world’s wealthiest individuals to dedicate the majority of their wealth to philanthropy. However we believe that Entrepreneurs are the best executors by nature to achieve the best Impact-ROI. Combining both pledges will result in the best possible outcome for the world.

 Who

All individuals with a sufficient entrepreneurial track record willing to make the world a better place.

Assignments of Entrepreneur’s Pledge

  • Encourage Entrepreneurs to start a sustainable company by sharing fellow start-up stories, market trends & positive media coverage
  • Facilitate contacts to social investors and philanthropists for funding
