Our Story…Our Mission
At Polar Society, we have a passion to create something with meaning. Our clothing line can be described as ‘fashion with a cause’. We are all immigrants and first generation Americans with a can-do mentality. Together, we hope to make a great difference while creating fashion with a purpose.
What are we all about?
We created an environmentally – conscious clothing brand that is not only fashion forward, but also allows us to improve the environment – with your help. We design and sell outfits made only with recyclable materials (like cotton) while donating 10% of our proceeds to organizations that support polar bear conservation and habitat preservation.

Why polar bears?
We’ve learned some of the harsh truths about climate change and the way the ecosystem suffers at the hands of humans. Together, we would like to play a role in eradicating some of this suffering by helping to preserve the natural habitat of polar bears. We learned that the polar bears in the Arctic are slowly becoming extinct due to rising global temperatures. Glaciers and icebergs are melting at an exponential rate, leaving us with increasing sea levels, and very limited movement for the polar bears that inhabit the area. In fact, the lack of solid ground has made it virtually impossible for the polar bears to survive! With this shocking realization, we decided to put all of our energy into helping these vulnerable animals by donating a part of our profit to organizations that support polar bear conservation and habitat preservation.
Our mission is to create a more sustainable future for our planet by combining our shared talents in style, design, and philanthropy. We realized that an alarming amount of designers in the fashion industry use fabric that is non-recyclable. This has a negative effect on the environment, as it increases the volume in our landfills – creating air, atmosphere, land, and aquifer pollution. With this realization, we decided to create fashion made of 100 percent cotton – a recyclable material, that not only holds a trendy look, but also influences a positive change for us and future generations.
