Ethos Magazine: Issue 2 - 12
Ethos is a magazine for and about people who embrace new and innovative ways of doing business. They cover stories about the most progressive business leaders, their teams, character and ideas to give you a unique insight into how they’re changing how business is done.
Created by a small but wonderful team in Liverpool. Printed at Resolution Print in Glasgow.
This is the first issue of their new, bigger, bi-annual Ethos. And it’s chock-full of stories of good business, sustainable picks, ideas, innovation and inspiration.
Their cover star Toms talks about shoes, sustainability and giving to communities. We talk too 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; our local hero is Madlug, which gives its beautiful, bright bags to young people leaving care. They think about what makes cities more liveable, and they’ve added a new section with ideas, tips and bite-sized inspiration.
And travel has them thinking, this issue. They spend 24 hours in Kyiv; travel from our couch and our photo story picks up passionate arguments about freedom of movement.
In our tenth installment of Ethos magazine we’re talking all things Nike. Our cover story explores how the sportswear giant is supporting civil rights through powerful and controversial advertising campaigns; and the fallout it experiences as a result.
We journey to Palestine, where we meet the Palestinian olive farmers working and living under an imposing illegal military occupation; Zaytoun is the CIC working with them to get Palestinian produce from farmer’s field to shop shelf.
Our stories span five continents as we discuss period poverty, women in tech and females in film.

We meet co-founder of the Comedy Store Players, Neil Mullarkey, who tells us why he’s bringing his infamous improv comedy into boardrooms around the world. And, we pick up the palm oil debate; is an outright boycott the answer? Or, is it actually one of the world’s most sustainable oils?
In our summer edition of Ethos magazine, we spend 24 hours in Saint Petersburg, and travel to Pakistan to learn the importance of STEM subjects for girls.

This issue’s colourful cover star is ice-cream giant Ben & Jerry’s, we caught up with the team, to learn the importance of keeping activism at its heart whilst being part of a multinational company.
Find a moment of mindful reflection, as we speak to Calm – the App Store’s number one mindfulness app – and discover how switching off from technology is important for both our mental and physical health.
In this issue we’re also exploring marketplaces, local heroes, and asking: can gentrification be a force for good?
In issue 05 of Ethos they look at everything from Arctic innovation, to new farming methods that could revitalise the industry. They meet Andra Keay, of Silicon Valley Robotics, who outlines her visions for the future and how the tech industry needs to be more inclusive. Ethos look at whether eating insects could be the answer to an impending global crisis; and they also look at Tony’s Chocolonely who are making 100% slave-free chocolate and writing their own rules as they do it. The world may be on the verge of disaster, but luckily there’s still people out there doing the right things.
From Bangladesh to Barcelona; Hamburg to El Hierro, issue four of Ethos magazine covers everything from ethical fashion, to electric vehicles, sport and the sustainable development goals.
