Here at Flo, we're stoked to be able to stock some incredible brands that double as social enterprises, run by amazing kiwis. We're taking this time to highlight a few of them...
Indigo & Iris
Restoring sight in the pacific
Flo sister Bella first came across this brand when she heard Bonnie speak about her story about her visit to Vanuatu, which led her to starting Indigo & Iris. "We are indigo & iris. A beauty brand that gives a damn. We are passionate about changing the traditional business model by taking what has been learnt in the past and applying modern ideologies that have merit. Change is life baby." -
"50% of all levitate mascara profit is donated to curing avoidable blindness in the Pacific Islands through The Fred Hollows Foundation.
Donating 50% of our profit is not a marketing technique. The reason we started indigo & iris was not because we really love makeup (although we do), it was not to make a shit load of money, it was because we really want to make a positive impact in the world." - Hannah, CEO
Buy One Give One, giving back to kiwi kids
"Every time you buy from us, a school book is donated to a child in need. Every book that get’s donated not only supports children in need, but equips schools to be able to provide the best education possible." - Jason, founder
Make Give Live
Buy One Give One, connecting the local community
Chrissy first came across Make Give Live in an article, and we instantly fell in love with the story! We love how Claire (the founder) combined giving back, and creating a community for supporting mental health of kiwi communities.
Flo Gives Back
15% of the sale is given to empower vulnerable women
After a severe earthquake paralyzed Nepal in 2015, hundreds of thousands of people were made homeless with entire villages flattened. The chaos of this earthquake exposed much of Nepal’s most vulnerable people to be the victims of human trafficking and extreme poverty. That's why we have partnered with an amazing project in Makwanpur, rural Nepal, to help create an empowered community which can protect itself from exploitation and slavery, and drive its own social and economic development.
