e·thos: the characteristic spirit of a culture, era, or community as manifested in its beliefs and aspirations.
Ethos is a low-waste sustainable living shop and refillery on Amah Mutsun Land (Capitola, California). At Ethos we want to see a world with less waste, less plastic pollution, and more accessible, sustainable resources for all communities. And that’s why Ethos was created, to do just that! We exist as a resource, to encourage the formation of more ethical and sustainable habits into everyday living. Whether that be through our curation of low-waste alternatives to disposables, educational offerings, or simply spurring a conversation. We strive to make low-waste living fun, exciting, accessible, and approachable for all lifestyles. Our hope is that through these efforts we make a difference in our greater global community that includes the health of our planet, of all beings, and for future generations to come.
Here’s to living out our ethos together! #liveyourethos
