Launched in Spring of this year, Cotopaxi is an outdoor gear brand that has a twin attraction for adventure and social good. To say that they offer "adventure accessories" is somewhat of a misnomer because their products have a wider range than that and include BPA-free water bottles, durable backpacks and comfy t-shirts, with a full apparel line on the agenda for later this year.
"Each piece of Cotopaxi gear is tied to a humanitarian cause in one of the poorest regions of the world," they write on their website. "And we tell you where your money goes in a tangible way." Ten percent of the profits go to their non-profit partners, making it a transparent model of fair labor and ethical production and consumption.
