We’re so proud to be a woman-owned business at Wholesome Culture (looking at you, Audrey!). And it’s truly so amazing to see female-founded businesses have increased by 300% since 1972. 

To celebrate International Women’s Day theme #EachforEqual, we wanted to highlight some woman-owned businesses rooted with awesome missions.  

Whether you’re craving vegan treats or in need of some zero-waste swaps, here are nine organizations led by fierce females doing awesome work that makes us want to put aside our fears and pursue our dreams. 

9 woman-owned businesses we’re really loving right now

1. Sweet Loren’s: Vegan edible cookie dough

We could talk about the deliciousness of Sweet Loren’s edible vegan cookie dough all day long, but the founder’s backstory is too inspiring not to share. 

After beating cancer in her early twenties, Loren Brill wanted to treat herself without compromising her dedication to clean eating. So with plant-based ingredients, fun recipes, and a whole lot of heart, Sweet Loren’s came to be! 

The flavors come in sugar, fudgy brownie, oatmeal cranberry, and chocolate chunk. And we’d tell you our favorite but it’s nearly impossible to pick just one!

2. Hippie Haven Shop: Eco-friendly lifestyle products 

From selling vegan soaps in her spare time on Etsy to launching an eco-friendly lifestyle boutique, Callee Ackland shows how dedication and ambition can turn into a full-time career.

More than 70 percent of the eco-friendly products offered at Hippie Haven Shop are made by female-makers in the United States. And you don’t have to visit the store in South Dakota to support her business. The online store features amazing zero-waste products like shampoo bars, compostable sponges, and menstrual cups. 

3. Base Culture: Paleo baked goods + nut butters

A 30-day Paleo challenge turned into a newfound career for Jordann Windschauer, the founder and CEO of Base Culture. During the challenge, her sweet tooth inspired her to whip up yummy baked goods without dairy, processed ingredients, and gluten. And from there, Base Culture was born! 

You’ll find almond butters, breads, and brownies. And just a note: some of the products are not vegan-friendly, so be sure to peep the ingredient list. But we’re happy to share that all the almond butters are plant-based! 

4. Health-Ade Kombucha: Vegan and GMO-free kombucha drinks

Health-Ade is a female-founded business producing small batch organic, vegan, raw-certified, and handcrafted kombucha. Whew, that’s a lot of awesome stuff happening in a drink.

They also use only glass bottles, which can be up-cycled as soap containers or flower vases, and partner with the Garden School Foundation

5. HOAKA: Swimwear 

In 2016, Canadian entrepreneur Elisabeth Rioux started to design her own swimwear with a mix of practicality and style, which is now known as Hoaka Swimwear. The bathing suits are super comfortable and cute, and we love the message of body inclusivity. 

We’re also so excited for the launch of EcoHoaka, which is going to feature a collection of swimwear made from recycled plastic materials. Can’t wait!

6. Lunchskins: Eco-friendly food storage

Kirsten Quigley is on a mission to eliminate single waste plastic pollution with her durable lunch bags. LunchSkins offers reusable sandwich/snack bags, unbleached paper bags, and biodegradable paper straws. We love the purpose…  and the quirky bag patterns somehow make everything taste better! 

7. Nutpods: Plant-based creamers

Madeline Haydon, the founder and CEO of Nutpods, came up with the idea to start her business while pregnant on vacay and frustrated by the lack of non-dairy creamer options. And we’re so grateful for it! Nutpods offers creamers made with oat, almond, and coconut milk in all sorts of delish flavors. 

8. Ritual: Vegan vitamins

CEO Kat Schneider saw a need for vitamins without questionable ingredients, which led to her vitamin subscription startup Ritual

The vitamins are vegan-certified, non-GMO, gluten-free, and have no colorants or synthetic fillers. And they come in three categories: multivitamins for women, multivitamins for women post menopause, and prenatal vitamins. 

9. The Sill: Indoor plants

We’re so obsessed with indoor plants, so we just had to include The Sill on this list.

Eliza Blank founded the company dedicated to bringing the outdoors in with all their indoor plants in pretty pots. P.S. We just can’t resist the adorable ceramic message pops!
