Why Support Women Owned Businesses?

Why Support Women Owned Businesses?

When your purchasing power supports women-owned businesses, it increases the economic stability of our families and communities. 

Data shows
 communities where opportunities for women are on par with men have fewer child deaths, fewer conflicts, better public services and health. Research shows that where women-owned businesses thrive, the community wins. 
When women own their own businesses they are able to create jobs, grow wealth, and give back in so many ways. 

This creates positive generational change for young girls who are able to become empowered leaders of the community themselves.

To sum it up, if you want a better world (and we know you do), supporting women owned businesses is a great tangible step. Check out a list of a few of our favorite women-owned business from home goods, business development, good eats, to skin care.  Keep us posted on your new favorite brands!
