Advocacy Through Industry


Founded in 2004 by Raan and Shea Parton, Apolis was created from a model that focused on business and social change. The brothers wanted to create a model that mixed commerce and economic development in order to try and bring prosperity to those in impoverished countries. Apolis manufactures locally from different areas such as Uganda, Peru, Bangladesh, and even Los Angeles to create their one-of-a-kind reusable shopping bags. Apolis' statement about what the brand stands for is "[Apolis is for] the people who are the innovators, the advocates, and the revolutionaries". 

Apolis, also, has a sustainable clothing line of basic essentials made in Peru, and a premium denim line filled with pairs of jeans and jackets all ethically produced.
