   By SheSpeaksTeam  Mar 15, 2023

Happy Women’s History Month!

Women have always been forces to be reckoned with. From Rosa Parks, Michelle Obama, to inspiring women in our daily lives and social circles, women are constantly pushing the limits and working to improve our society day by day.

With a month as momentous as this, it is the perfect time to highlight and support some amazing women-owned businesses that provide far more than just a product. These businesses use their profits, customers, and missions to bring light to and support amazing causes from period poverty to underprivileged communities and more!

This list is just a tiny portion of the NUMEROUS women-owned businesses that you can support and learn more about!

Founder, Cherie Hoeger, began creating her collection of menstrual cups and period underwear after learning about the political instabilities that lead to her family in Venezuela not having access to period care products for months. Now, her company, Saalt, works towards a mission of providing reusable period care products to those, like her family, who are experiencing period poverty. Saalt is a certified B corp and donates 2% of its revenue to donate its products to communities in need.

Wildfang Clothing
A women-owned and woman-ran clothing company that focuses on producing inclusive, gender-free clothing and accessories. The company is focused on supporting the LGBTQIA+ community and makes donations to related charities with every purchase.

Thistle Farms
A nonprofit social enterprise that produces lifestyle products such as candles, lotions, and essential oils. Everyone purchases work to support women survivors of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction. Additionally, the organization also helps house residents in therapeutic settings which offer healthcare, therapy, house, work, and a supportive community.

Creates and sells plastic bag alternatives to reduce food and plastic waste. The company and its efforts alone have saved over 5 billion single-use plastic bags from entering waterways and oceans. The company also donates 1% of its sales to environmental nonprofits.

A company that has worked to make the typical bra more inclusive by offering a large range of sizes and designs including half sizes. They have also partnered with I Support Girls, who help women/girls in situations such as homelessness, refugees, and transitional housing, to donate bras to women in need and have donated over 10 million bras as of 2018.
