FASHION WITH PURPOSE
EKOLUV is driven by an authentic commitment to social justice and environmental responsibility.
Here at EKOLUV, "We strive to encourage the use of organisations that aid in the development of people all over the world to create opportunity for themselves, thus creating better lives for themselves and their families".
We will donate 5% of every ONLINE sale to our chosen charity organisation Opportunity International Australia.
International Australia provides people living in poverty with the
opportunity to transform their lives. Offering a hand up rather than a
hand-out, we use a sustainable
approach to solve poverty – empowering families through community
development programs and loans as small as $100 to help them grow their
own small business. These services mean that families no longer have to
struggle to afford food, water, healthcare and
an education for their children. Our desire is to see families break
free from poverty – for good. For more information you can visit their website at www.opportunity.org.au/
We at EKOLUV endeavour to ensure that all products we source are carried
out in a manner that are consistent with Fair Trade and or
environmentally accredited principles.
We are committed to providing the world access to Eco-luxury, vintage, sustainable, fair trade and overall ethical fashion & making them the everyday fashion wear of choice for the conscious consumer.
We believe in creating & supporting opportunities for people in developing countries to benefit in an ethical and sustainable manner from the international market whilst being environmentally conscious of our practices. We do this through our choice to select/scource/support/promote and sell exceptional quality, stylish items either produced under accredited associations and or ethical practices and methods of sourcing.
Our products are sourced from all over the world and in a
variety of developing countries. We only encourage brands that use the
highest quality, and or certified organic & ethically grown raw
materials into their fashion wear. We consistantly strive to ensure that
all our products 'in some way' leave a minimal carbon & water
We want to enable consumers to know the full “story” behind the products they are buying, that both
the planet and the people along the supply chain are treated with respect and dignity.
We know that regardless of what is percieved about fashionable
people who crave style is that people do want to be part of the
“solution” to poverty, social injustice and environmental degradation
and in most cases will embrace opportunities to do so – but at the same
time don’t want to compromise on 'quality' or 'style'.
More people today are becoming aware of the dangers of toxicity and the links to what we wear, ultimately having an affect on our bodies and we do not want to be clothed in fabrics that are 'harmful'; rather are free of chemicals and pesticides and the associated negative consequences.
EKOLUV aims to demonstrate that social and environmental integrity and profits can happily coexist. Ethics need
not be compromised to be successful in the business world. We believe to be successful is to have a business founded on LOVE, LOVE for this earth and all it's beings.
