Ethical Focus & Policy

The Shopanthropic collection is eco-friendly and ethically-made.

The company sources sustainable materials that are local to the regions they work in, whenever possible. In Bangladesh, they work with materials such as coconut fibre and jute, while in Cambodia, materials such as recycled bombshell metal and paper are used. The company also attempts to work with mostly women artisans, empowering them to build a sustainable livelihood.

Shopanthropic’s work in Bangladesh, Cambodia and India has helped dozens of artisans develop/enhance employable skill sets and fund a sustainable livelihood. The work that Shopanthropic has done in a number of co-operatives in the three countries has had a meaningful social, financial and environmental impact in these communities. By using eco-friendly materials like natural dyes and coconut fiber along with promoting other day-to-day eco-friendly living practices, Shopanthropic continues to educate it’s artisans about the importance of looking after the environment.

The work that Shopanthropic continues to do has also had a significant impact on the development of newer co-ops who have had the opportunity to learn, grow, test and build with the company. They have developed stronger confidence that has helped them in approaching other global ethical fashion brands to partner and collaborate with. This is all exciting progress that the company hopes to continue to further.
