Apolis is a socially motivated lifestyle brand and certified B Corporation that empowers communities worldwide to be self-sustaining.
Founded by Shea & Raan Parton, Apolis info is a LA fashion and lifestyle brand that empowers people and communities worldwide to determine their own destiny.
Apolis is Greek for ‘Global Citizen’, which stands as their philosophy. They adopt the model of ‘Advocacy through Industry’, with the idea that people can better their lives when they are given equal access to the global marketplace.
Everyone knows the quote, ‘give a man a fish and you’ll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you’ll feed him for a lifetime’. The Parton brothers realized that the world was filled with well-trained fishermen, but what they learned was that sometimes they didn’t have access to the right bait or a big enough pond.
For Apolis this meant getting creators of unique handmade goods from the developing world, access to first-world customers looking for one-of-a-kind products. The brothers actively avoid one off trends and fashions, in favor of developing sustainable growth.
“We are a group of social entrepreneurs who believe that the most valuable practice in creating lasting change is by investing in people.”
