He witnessed the severe poverty of the area and vowed to make a difference, which is why he combined his passion for travel and humanitarian work and established the outdoor apparel brand 'Cotopaxi'. Smith wanted the name to represent the spirit of adventure, optimism, and determination he'd experienced in Ecuador, which is reflected in the vibrant and colourful clothing and accessories the brand produces. Cotopaxi is a certified B Corporation as they put 1% of its profits toward addressing poverty and supporting community development, and also providing grants, creating fair conditions in the manufacturing process, and producing sustainable clothing that is timeless, built to last and most importantly ethical.
