Who doesn’t love a local company that gives back? We sure do! It’s International Women’s #EachforEqual Day and we’ve put together a list of Vancouver and Victoria-based companies who not only offer amazing products, but also support women and contribute to increasing gender equality. 

Be part of the movement by supporting the following outstanding companies and their exclusive products. 

Three Companies We Love Who Give Back

1.  joni 

Period poverty; yes, it’s a thing. In fact, 1 in 3 menstruators in Canada who are under the age of 25 can’t afford menstrual products. joni’s mission is to end period poverty in Canada through their one-for-one model. Sign up for their subscription service to receive monthly period products delivered to your door and they donate the exact same product to a Canadian in need. Amazing!

2.  Pyrrha

Vancouver-based Pyrrha was formed in response to a culture of mass production that they find so common in the jewellery industry. Each talisman that’s handcrafted in their Vancouver studio is made to keep. Throughout March 2020, 50% of the proceeds of each piece bought from the Goddess Collection will be donated to the Global Fund for Women, an organization dedicated to creating gender equality. Way to go!

3.  Supercrush

Supercrush is a Vancouver-based company who hand-makes hair accessories all while minimizing waste in production, sourcing local materials, and using recyclable items for their operations. This International Women’s Day, Supercrush released an exclusive amethyst crushed scrunchie where 20% of the net proceeds are donated to One Girl Can, an organization that works to break the cycle of poverty through education and mentorship. We love it!
