We all know Walmart is an epic superstore. It's the place we can buy groceries, beauty products, and knit-undies, all-in-one. As if we didn't already love Walmart for its budget-friendly prices and product variety, now we can adore it.
The folks at the mega shop have used their size and scale to launch Empowering Women Together, an e-commerce destination that supports small, female-owned businesses across the states and around the world. If you're looking for something a bit more unique and interesting than the usual No Boundaries or Simply Basic (not that these brands aren't awesome, because they totally are), you'll love these shops.
Walmart is definitely giving a voice and a home to businesses that may otherwise never get a big break. They're featuring 200 items from 19 businesses in nine different countries. And this has all happened in the early stages of the operation! The effort is part of Walmart's bigger project — the Global Women's Economic Empowerment Initiative, a five-year plan to raise $20 billion and empower the ladies in its supply chain, providing better training, market access, and career opportunities.
This fantastic project is aiding women worldwide, and it can help you, too! Whether you're into handmade homewear, beaded jewelry, or LBDs, the shops on Empowering Women Together will have something for you. You'll get the chance to shop totally original, beautiful pieces and support small business owners while doing it. With Mother's Day around the corner, Walmart has also set up a lookbook with gift ideas for every mom. But like us, you'll probably want most of the items for yourself.
