Etiko is the streetwear brand taking sustainability and ethics in their stride. At Good On You, we like to think of Etiko as one of our ethical fashion heroes.

Breaking news 9 December: Etiko has won the Human Rights Business Award – Congratulations!

An Australian-based and family owned business, Etiko sells a range of Fair Trade, organic sneakers, thongs, t-shirts and underwear. They started back in 2005 after being fed up with the lack of options for responsible and eco-friendly gear.

CEO Nick Savaidis explains “no matter how hard we tried we couldn’t buy stuff such as sports balls, clothing, and footwear, which we could be 100% confident hadn’t been made by a child or some poor worker being ripped off in a developing country”.

Today Etiko source organic cotton and purchase Fair Trade products from marginalised producer-groups in developing countries. Every step in their production process is traceable and transparent. Plus their products are 100% vegan.

That’s why Good On You is thrilled to be partnering with Etiko to help us bring the Good On You app to North America. And you should be too!
