About Us

The Ethicalist is the Middle East’s first sustainable lifestyle magazine to engage and inspire an audience who want to live their best life ethically and sustainably.

Delivering the most compelling news stories, empowering features and fresh, curated ideas on sustainable beauty, style, fashion, food and more, we want to create conversations but also galvanise real, lasting change. One article, one person, one day at a time.

The Ethicalist Impact

The moment people start interacting with a story is the moment when they can start to immerse themselves into new ways of thinking. We want our audience to dive deep into the content that we share because what is happening to our planet affects us all, no matter where we are.

We hope you will find this to be meaningful space that inspires and moves you to live lives of impact because no matter how monumental the topics we tackle, the ideas, thoughts, and actions of every individual contributes to large scale change.
