About Apsara Ethical Gifts
Apsara Ethical Gifts began in Sydney in 2017 selling a small number of products imported from artisans and cooperatives Sri Lanka at Fair Trade markets and pop-ups in Sydney. It has now grown into one of Australia's premiere online and bricks and mortar Fair Trade and Ethical gift retailers.
We were a member of the Fair Trade Cove in Lane Cove and Balgowlah until early 2021 when we opened our new shop, Ethical by Nature, at 416 Oxford Street, Paddington.
We are proud to be able to offer you an alternative to the damaging impacts of mainstream consumerism and to provide positive shopping solutions to reducing poverty and our impacts on other life and the planet.
We are committed to offering our customers high-quality, unique, handmade and marketable fair trade, recycled and/or ethically produced gifts and fashion items.
Your purchase will support people living in poverty, who now have an opportunity to earn an income, a living wage. With this income the family and community can buy food, have somewhere to live, purchase healthcare, send their children to school; and most importantly live with dignity - all the things we take for granted.
We are also committed to transitioning to a carbon neutral economy as quickly as possible and run our entire business as carbon positive. We also reuse or recycle as much shipping and packing materials as we can, including in our deliveries to you, and use biodegradable packing materials including wrapping and packing tape wherever we can.
