Minneapolis – September 7, 2016 – Ethos Holdings, LLC has launched a new retail website designed to be the premier source for shoppers seeking to make a positive impact through beautiful clothing and accessories that are ethically and sustainably produced. Each item in the Ethos Collection™ was selected for its timeless design, consideration for the environment and commitment to artisan safety and fair wages.
Ethos Collection (http://www.shopethoscollection.com/) offers items sourced from designers around the globe and regularly adds to its assortment with products that capture the brand’s timeless aesthetic and respect for the production process. Furthermore, Ethos Collection donates a portion of its sales to micro-finance loans in developing countries to support women traditionally without access to credit.
Sara Aubitz, the company’s founder, said, “I launched Ethos Collection to provide shoppers with a selection of items that combine timeless beauty and quality with an awareness of the environment and the lives we impact through our clothing choices.”
“My near decade of experience in the retail industry made me aware of the increasingly difficult conditions of many global garment workers, including situations that lead to fatalities and hold people in the trappings of poverty. Despite a number of significant disasters, fast-fashion continues to negatively impact the lives of its workers and has become the second most polluting industry in the world.”
In addition to offering an ethical assortment, Ethos Collection donates 3 percent of its sales to loans through micro-lending platform KIVA™, an international non-profit with a mission to alleviate poverty. These loans support women across the developing world to foster economic empowerment. Shoppers are given transparency to the loans their purchases support. As these loans are repaid, Ethos Collection reinvests the principle to maximize impact. Since launching in June, purchases from the collection have already supported loans to women in the Philippines, Mali, and Ecuador.
