Comrade Kiev exists to shine light on the unfamiliar, and to share stories
that illustrate the beauty of Soviet design. Sometimes shining a light on the unfamiliar means we must
confront the unacceptable. As a business, we must play our part in influencing change.
In some countries we’ve visited, the authorities regularly crack down on media, harass peaceful protesters, engage in smear campaigns against political rivals, and ban independent foreign organisations.
Our commitment to freedom and equality is unwavering. We’ve chosen to donate 2% of all revenue to Human Rights Watch, an independant, non-profit NGO that exists to give voice to the oppressed and hold those responsible accountable.
We donate a percentage of revenue instead of profit, quite simply because there isn’t much profit at the moment. We’re a small business, our focus is on growth, but our ethical duty cannot wait. We’ll continue to increase that percentage by 1% every year until 10% of Comrade Kiev’s revenue is put towards influencing change.
The world needs to move fast to make a meaningful difference in the fight against climate change. We all leave an impact on the planet, so we can all play a part in preventing climate change.
Comrade Kiev is built on the principal of celebrating existing objects, rather than creating something new. But, getting your poster to its new home creates waste. We’ve sought out suppliers who share the same dedication as us to protecting the environment.
