Ethos Issue 12

This is the first issue of the new, bigger, bi-annual Ethos. And it’s chock-full of stories of good business, sustainable picks, ideas, innovation and inspiration.

Cover star Toms talks about shoes, sustainability and giving to communities. Ethos talks to Sarah’s Bag, the luxury Lebanese brand, and Zero Co – Australia’s biggest ever crowdfunder – about a new range of household products in sustainable, recycled packaging.

Closer to home, they head to Granby Workshop to talk about the world’s first 100% recycled tableware; the local hero is Madlug, which gives its beautiful, bright bags to young people leaving care. They consider what makes cities more liveable, and there's a new section with ideas, tips and bite-sized inspiration.

Travel includes 24 hours in Kyiv; travel from the couch and the photo story picks up passionate arguments about freedom of movement.
