✨Happy International Women's Day!

Today, March 8th, is a global day to celebrate women's achievements and call for action to accelerate gender equality.

Did you know that 89% of our brands at Go For Zero are founded by incredible women entrepreneurs?

As a female-founded and owned company, we're proud to support women every single day through our online platform. We are strong together! But we go beyond celebration...

We donate, and you choose

This year, we don't just celebrate; we also take action against inequality! For every order in the next 3 days, we're tripling our transparent donations to one of the chosen charities below because they align with our values and focus on creating lasting positive change. You get to choose which cause you want us to donate to.

Here's a closer look at the important work the charities do:

1. Stop Sexual Violence: Teach Us Consent

  • Focus: Ending youth sexual abuse in Australia
  • The Problem: 41% of sexually active 14-18 year olds report unwanted sex.
  • The Solution: Teach Us Consent aims to prevent peer-on-peer sexual violence through education campaigns.
  • Your Impact: Every $3 donated educates over 300 people about consent, creating a safer environment.

2. End the Marriage of Girls: The Hunger Project

  • Focus: Stopping child marriage in India
  • The Problem: 2 in 5 marriages in India involve a child bride.
  • The Solution: The Hunger Project empowers girls to advocate for themselves and delay marriage.
  • Your Impact: $3 donated enables 30 women to attend workshops on critical issues, including ending child marriage.

3. End Violence Against Women: UN Women

  • Focus: Protecting women and girls in Papua New Guinea
  • The Problem: Up to 93% of women in the highlands experience violence regularly.
  • The Solution: UN Women trains community leaders and provides women with resources to stay safe.
  • Your Impact: $3 donated helps 3 women in Papua New Guinea live free from violence.

How does it work?

When you purchase your waste-free and toxin-free products, you'll be asked to select which charity you would like us to donate $3 to. We will report back to you next week about the impact we made together because transparency matters!

Join us in making International Women's Day more than just a celebration but also a vehicle to support equality, and be part of a movement that warms hearts and changes lives.
