“From what we get, we can make a living; What we give, however, makes a life”

-Arthur Ashe

Ethiqana’s main aim is to be a force for good. We totally understand our unique role as facilitators of sustainable change to bring a little hope and joy to the lives of our artisan heroes.

But we wouldn’t be able to achieve any of this without help from YOU, our friends! You share our vision for a fairer, kinder world where businesses are not just set up to make a profit. You would like to reduce your dependence on plastic and leave a cleaner world to your next generation. You are the one who is up for trying out newer solutions to existing problems.

In simple words, it’s your impact that will change the world. And it is the impact on the lives of the beneficiaries that will bring about real change.

So, continuing with this theme, we’ve partnered up with B1G1 (Buy1Give1) to embed giving back at every level.

  • When you sign up to our monthly newsletter, you’d be gifting clean and safe drinking water to families in the Tigray region of Ethiopia.
  • When you buy something from us, in addition to providing sustainable livelihoods, you’d be making things better for people around the world through one of the B1G1 projects. We’ll select a project each month so we can distribute the love equally.
  • When you give us feedback, you’d be helping provide a free library book to children in Cambodia.

B1G1 is a simple and transparent way of making a difference to the lives of many. This fantastic community is trusted by businesses big and small from 43 different countries. Find us here on the B1G1 site.

Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a measurable way to help improve the global challenges we face today, such as poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice etc.

The info-graphic below shows in numbers the positive impact we, i.e. you and us, have been able to achieve for the following SDGs. As ever, with your crucial help, we can make an even bigger impact to these in the future.

Offsetting our carbon footprint

We normally don’t think about this but running websites also has an environmental impact. But fortunately, technology is mainly used for good.

We’ve partnered with Reforest The Web so that we can plant 5 trees per transaction. On a twelve month subscription, of which we have two, that’s 120 trees per year!
