Ethos, Issue 19
Ethos, Issue 19
Ethos is a magazine about businesses changing the world. We connect sustainable ideas, people and places, with stories about work, ideas and life. We cover stories about the most progressive business leaders, their teams, ethos and ideas to give you a unique insight into how they’re changing how business is done.
We believe that business can be a force for good, so through Ethos we aim to champion and highlight those who are changing the world through their ethical aims and innovative ideas. Business should be about people and ideas – business models are simply vehicles.
Writing about regional, national and international social enterprises and ethical businesses from our base in Liverpool, UK, we look at great businesses and the sector’s success stories. They are stories about community and responsibility, fresh ideas and free thinking entrepreneurs. They may be ethical and innovative, but they’re interesting and exciting.
Our readers engage with our stories because they’re just that – great stories. Ethos highlights the businesses that surround us every day, the businesses that are making their mark and doing something different. The world of social enterprise is home to stories and successes which just don’t make conventional business sense; and these are the tales which draw people in and connect them to their local economies in a way that ‘business as usual’ can’t.
In this issue:
We follow the success of our joy-focused issue 18 with a new theme – this time looking at cities and their role in the way we live. We speak to Malmö’s city architect about designing cities that are based around aesthetics, functionality – and the feelings of the people that live there. And we look at a Boston-based project that engages local people in the needs of their community.
But we move outside the cities, too. Our cover story catches up with Craghoppers to hear about revolutionary technology which takes carbon emissions from factories and turns them into a fibre, that becomes a fleece for those heading for the outdoors. And we hit the beach in Margate, to find out more about the magical power of seaweed and Haeckels, the skincare brand rethinking the way the industry works.
We have a beautiful photo story about a sustainable brand and cycling adventure on the island of Mallorca and explore illustrator Ndumiso Nyoni’s quest for more authentic representation of Africa. In between, we spend 48 hours in Pune, soaking up the sights and sounds of India and introduce new slots to hear from artists and writers in the UK and Africa about their daily routines and the inspiration behind their work.
We tackle fear in this issue and ask what’s holding us back. We also reveal the results of our long study into the impact of creating Ethos – and how we can improve it. And, as 2023 draws to a close, we round off our Year of Impact campaign, suggesting ways you can create change, large or small.

Disko is in Cambridge, Ontario. It's about an hour west of Toronto. We're specifically located in the Galt area, which is a beautiful old downtown with nice shops. It's worth the drive.
