Apolis, meaning “global citizen,” is socially motivated lifestyle brand that empowers communities worldwide. Brothers Raan and Shea Parton founded the company in 2004 with a simple idea that business can create social change. Their travels abroad immersed them in personal stories of struggle and survival and inspired them to create a business model that bridges commerce and economic development. Along with their commitment to global advocacy, they also understand the importance of sourcing and manufacturing locally. Whether it means partnering with manufacturers in Uganda, Peru, Bangladesh, or around the corner in Los Angeles, the Partons have used their model for “advocacy through industry” to empower people to determine their own future. www.apolisglobal.com
