Our Unwavering Commitment
to a Better World

Mission 1: Empowering Sustainable Retailers

The journey began with the realization that small retailers were facing unprecedented challenges, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. But it wasn't just the retailers; even institutions like the legendary Jelmoli in the heart of Zürich were closing their doors due to the changing landscape of shopping.

During COVID-19, retailers were forced to pivot from traditional brick-and-mortar stores to the digital realm. This transition was exceptionally challenging, and many reverted to their traditional business models.

However, alongside these challenges, there is a growing wave of sustainable producers and brands seeking visibility and support. They need a platform to showcase their incredible offerings. In Switzerland, there exists a significant gap — a lack of a purpose-driven marketplace that want to collaborate closely with retailers and these remarkable, sustainability-focused brands. These brands and retailers are the roots of our economy, our neighbors, our eco-heroes, and the little shops next door.

Ethic&Co was born to fill this void. Our primary mission is to empower both retailers and small, purpose-driven brands to not only survive but thrive in the digital marketplace. We are here to help them embrace technology, extend their reach to a broader audience, and share their unique, locally-sourced products. With us, you can discover the hidden gems in your neighborhood and actively support local businesses.

Mission 2: Supporting Social Projects

Our commitment doesn't end with businesses; it extends to the very heart of our communities. A portion of our sales is devoted to supporting social projects close to our hearts. Though we've only just begun, our commitment is steadfast. We are actively seeking projects that reflect our values.

In the near future, your purchases will become a beacon of hope for causes that matter. You will choose which projects to support from a variety of projects we will collaborate with. Feel free to suggest us a project with impact, we are happy to look into it.

Mission 3: Empowering Women in Need

Our journey is deeply personal. Our founder, Katharina, has a personal passion project that drives her. She has experienced the challenges women face in business firsthand, over and over again, and understands the importance of support. Katharina envisions a world where women are not only empowered but also financially supported in their endeavors. Beyond our current missions, our long-term goal is to create a strong market presence, allowing us to establish our foundation. This foundation will be dedicated to helping women in need and supporting impactful women-led projects. At Ethic&Co, our journey is about creating a marketplace that makes a difference. Join us, and together, let's make a positive impact on the world.
