Blue Door Trading Co would like to introduce you to Apolis Global.

We are proud to be a partner of Apolis in their efforts help provide equal access in the global marketplace.

Apolis (a-pöl-is) means “global citizen.” We are a socially motivated lifestyle brand that empowers communities worldwide.


In 2004, brothers Raan and Shea Parton founded Apolis 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 of “advocacy through industry” to empower people to determine their own future.



We at BDTC, are currently offering their insanely popular market bags; featured in GQ, some leather keychains and their yummy smelling candles.

Their market bag and the good that they promote is what caught our eye and our hearts. 

In 2009 they began their Bangladesh Project with an order of 50 market bags. Six years and over 81,000 market bags later, and the project now supports employment for 21 women.

A total of 170 Partners across ten countries are now participating in our Local + Globalproject. But all of this is just the beginning.
