During National Small Business Month in October, and year round, we encourage a commitment to buy women-owned by consciously choosing a women-owned brand to replace everyday purchases. Through increased conscious consumerism, we can make a measurable impact on women-owned businesses.

Here are 7 easy ways to Make One Switch to #BuyWomenOwned.

1. Have a furry office mate?

You know they love treats as much as you do. Shop Petphoria next time your little buddy needs more treats. Petphoria has delicious and nutritious luxury dog treats, and is committed to providing people living with disabilities the opportunity to learn basic job functions.

2. When it’s way past time for a break.

Grab a snack (or two) that is tasty, healthy AND on a mission.

Perfect Granola has a goal of ending hunger by donating thousands of pounds of granola and 5% of profits each year. It’s naturally-flavored, premium granola and granola bars are made with superfoods, no preservatives or refined sugars and are free of gluten, soy, dairy and high fructose corn syrup. Find them all over the place, including online, Wegmans, Walmart, Kroger, ShopRite, Tops Friendly Markets, and Amazon.

Every Body Eat® makes delicious, flavorful foods enjoyed by people with and without special diets because they are free from the top 14 allergens and corn. Find them online and on Amazon.

3. You’re the tastemaker of the group – and it’s girls’ night.

Show up with a ready-to-drink sparkling spirit-based premium cocktail that reinforces your reputation as always “in the know” AND supporting Women Owned entrepreneurs. Two Chicks Cocktails is flavored with natural essences of fruit and botanicals with attention-getting packaging. Find it on shelves in a growing list of locations, including Walmart, Total Wine & More, Albertsons, Buyrite, Cost Plus and hundreds of independent retailers across the United States.

4. Gifts, of course!

A fan favorite, our Women Owned Gift Guide is just what you need for corporate gift planning and giving, baby showers, birthdays and more, with something for everyone on your list.

5. Your immune system needs a boost (winter is coming…).

You ran out of your elderberry a while ago and have been meaning to replace it. Or you need to find something that actually helps you destress. Check out Hilma – a new standard for medicines cabinets, combining traditional herbal remedies with science and research to create natural products that work.

6. When your serum won’t eek out one more drop…

So many Women Owned products are available to help keep your skin glowing, your teeth white and your family clean. Check out the entire directory of Women Owned Beauty & Spa products.

7. Your TP is out…again.

Feel less guilty about going through so many rolls, napkins and facial tissue – look for Tree Free Paper on shelves throughout the U.S., including Walmart, Amazon and Staples. Tree Free Paper is a line of treeless paper products utilizing rapidly renewable resources such as sugar cane and bamboo grass, including bath and facial tissue, towels, napkins, disposable tableware, and copy paper.

Countless options exist to replace one item you already use with one from a Women Owned business! Check out the Women Owned Directory for more inspiration.

The sky is the limit of what can be replaced to Make One Switch.
