Tomorrow marks International Women’s Day, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate it than by shopping explicitly from women-owned brands. The global holiday honors the social, economic, cultural and political accomplishments made by women. It also calls for continuing to advance women’s equality. What better way to support all of the above than buying and consuming the goods created by female-founded companies? No matter how you plan to celebrate International Women’s Day, one thing anyone from anywhere in the world can do is to financially support women-owned businesses.
Though International Women’s Day has existed for over a century, its reach is far bigger now. Today’s ever-evolving technology has made it easier than ever to put your money where your mouth is (a.k.a. shop from women-owned brands).
However, you might not know exactly where to start, since so many of these brands now exist and thrive. To make it super simple for you, Target is spotlighting women-owned businesses that you can shop literally right this second. But let’s just clarify that you can and should buy from these brands all year round and not just on each annual IWD.
Below, find seven brands from Target’s lineup of women-owned businesses. There’s everything from home and kitchen essentials to beauty and makeup must-haves. We even slipped in an allergy-friendly food brand and a superfood self-care brand that are sure to impress.
Golde Matcha Turmeric Superfood Latte Blend
Trinity Mouzon Wofford and Issey Kobori founded Golde with the goal of making self-care easy, accessible and tasty. The brand’s products revolve around superfoods for improving your daily routine and feeling your best. The Matcha Turmeric Superfood Latte Blend has almost a perfect five-star rating at Target and helps with energy, focus and inflammation.
