About Us

Corethics is an independent all-volunteer-run charity established to create sustainable and thriving communities in the developing world.


Around 700 million people live in extreme poverty worldwide (less than $2 per day). Poverty results from social and environmental factors such as low wages, no access to clean water, and the lack of transparent and effective governance to support communities.


Underpinning our #Waste4Wealth project is the need to eradicate poverty. There are ample resources in the world for all, and we need to move resources to where they are most needed.


Corethics aims to bring affordable innovation to the developing world through a community-led and ethical approach. By identifying the root cause of problems for communities in Southeast Asia under a strengths-based lens, we can move beyond helping those in the developing world from surviving to thriving. We believe there are new ways of solving global problems, and we're pioneering the way!


At the heart of our projects are always our People + Planet.

"We're not afraid of trying new things to solve old problems".

We know that solutions to some of the world's biggest problems are already within reach. Corethics places itself as the conduit between solutions and those communities affected to bring about change. We offer a platform for Sustainability, Equity, Empowerment, and Ethics to thrive.


Bali, Indonesia


Our Bali, Indonesia program focuses on the protection, conservation, and education of the life-sustaining natural resource of water. We uncover the connection between tourism, fashion, and natural resource scarcity and pollution as an invitation to those who love Bali (travel and fashion) to join us in giving back to this unique and precious island ~ the Island of the Gods ~

#Waste4Wealth Fundraiser Uncovers the TRUTH About Fashion


Thank you to our guests who joined us to discuss the "Truth about Fashion" and our expert panel as they shared their first-hand experiences as a fashion designer, chemical engineer, and former Oxfam Labour Rights & Advocacy Coordinator and now a senior lecturer at law.



Young powerhouse and Eat Your Water founder Liam Scanlan shares what truth about fashion stands out for him. "Just because something is sustainable doesn't make it ethical".



Principal Process Engineer & Corethics Board Director Marnie Coates shared her expertise on the panel. "I'm not sure everyone understands the cost to communities when rivers and waterways are polluted, so I'd like to share some of that perspective".
