About Apolis

Apolis, which translates as “global citizen,” is a living and breathing social enterprise that equips and empowers people through opportunity. Apolis is a pioneer in the socially responsible apparel industry and creates opportunity by forming unique manufacturing partnerships around the globe.

Since our inception, Apolis has been a company centered on people. Whether it is our local Los Angeles-based manufacturers that make 60% of our collection, or our advocacy projects with cooperatives and non-profits in Uganda, Peru, Bangladesh, and Nepal, we believe in empowering communities through opportunity. Becoming a Certified B Corporation helps us clearly communicate our standing as a social enterprise and learn about ways we can make our company more socially and environmentally conscious.

The Change We Seek®

Our Model: Apolis co-creates products with manufacturers and directly allows the market to determine the future of each item we produce. It is a hands-on model to provide people access to opportunity called “advocacy through industry.”

Our Philosophy: The commonality between currencies, flags and languages is people. We believe that the most valuable way to create lasting change is to invest in people.

What makes us a better company?
