Our Giveback

BANDED was founded with a mission to make an impact on lives -- both by empowering women and by helping children in need.  That mission continues to drive us … in our products, in our messaging, and in our very purpose.


It all started with meals. Banded’s 1 =3™ giveback program works with food ministry partners in Latin America and the Caribbean to provide 3 meals to a child in need for every 1 BANDED product sold.  It’s that simple. 1 Banded product sold = 3 meals served.  With the help of loyal customers like you -- the BANDED woman -- we are proud to have provided more than 13.1 million meals to undernourished children.


Beyond the meals. BANDED partners with U.S. based companies that help vulnerable women learn to thrive by learning new skills and finding work at living wages. Our BANDED Empowerment Candles exist through a partnership with Prosperity Candles, an organization that trains and employs refugee women living in the U.S. at living wages. Through our partnership with them, each candle purchased provides these women the opportunity to build a brighter future for themselves and their families.


At BANDED we believe that all people deserve to feel positive, purposeful, powerful and proud and we strive every day to enable an empowered lifestyle through our products, content and opportunity to giveback. Our products are designed to pay it forward, and give new purpose to profits.


We thank you for your support. With your help we can continue to impact the world around us -- one woman …  one child … one product at a time.
