Be Bold For Change

HolidayIndigo ApparelComment

This is Part 1 of Indigo Apparel's Women's Empowerment Series. Shaye is a sustainable lifestyle blogger and founder of www.galtruism.com—for nature, for others, for you.


International Women's Day, originally called International Working Women's Day, is celebrated on March 8th every year. It is a central point in the movement for women’s rights. I hope for the day women will be celebrated everyday, so we don’t need one day to be celebrated. 

There's a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender equality around the globe, now more than ever. In support of International women’s day many will be found attending rallies, protesting on behalf of women’s rights, or spending money on women owned businesses like Indigo Apparel. How we wanted to celebrate this day and month is by asking women from all around what women empowerment means to them and to share a story about how being a woman has impacted their life. We hope to bring a sense of togetherness and unity, a safe space for women to share their creativity, ideas, and voice.

  Holiday time sounds like hot cocoa by the fire listening to Mariah Carey “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” For those that are eco-conscious, this time of year is one that is dreadfully wasteful. Look no further, we have simple gifting tips to avoid bags, bows, and paper which can be super wasteful. These steps can be done with tools found around the home. Zero waste and  zero dollars spent sounds fun to me!
