Ethos International is dedicated to bringing morality, ethics, and reflection into our everyday lives. We focus a lot on fashion because fashion is a part of our everyday lives, we all must wear clothing but do we realize that each item we purchase and wear, the amount of clothes we buy and even the materials they’re made out of is an ethical choice? We often don’t think of it that way, which is why slowing down and reflecting instantly become a part of ethical living. It’s easy and quick to buy a cheap garment off a clothing rack in a chain store, but that decision, and repeating that decision continuously deeply effects the entire world -the soil we walk on, the air we breathe and other human beings.
A moment of thought might lead us to ask, why is this clothing item so cheap? Often a bit of digging will lead us to a factory worker who isn’t being paid a living wage, a town far away being contaminated by harmful chemicals, execs who are paid exorbitant amounts of money yet allows troops to attack workers who march for a living wage.
A bit of thought, reflection and slowing down can lead to a massive change all around the world. Every purchase is an opportunity to do massive good. By supporting ethical brands we are making a more ethical world.
And these ethical decisions play out in every aspect of our life, the time we wanted to engage in gossip but didn’t. The moment we gave a helping hand instead of going about our day. The thought we put into a home cooked meal when buying fast food is easier. Every day we make ethical decisions, but none of these decisions are possible without slowing down, reflecting, listening to our inner conscious and our Guide.
If you’re on the same journey that we are treading, however slowly, we’d love for you to write for us. We currently pay $.01 per word. Submit an essay or proposal to info[at]ethosinternational.co
