Imagine seeing a JourneyWoman on your travels!
By Carolyn Ray, Publisher, JourneyWoman
When I took over JourneyWoman almost three years ago, one of the items that caught my attention was a bright orange luggage tag with a hand-drawn world on it and the words JourneyWoman written underneath it. I found a post Evelyn had written on Facebook in 2018 asking if women would be interested in the luggage tag as a way to recognize other JourneyWomen when travelling. The resounding response was a resounding ”THUMBS UP”
Evelyn didn’t get a chance to make that luggage tag but I did. That luggage tag was the inspiration for what I’m sharing with you today – a small collection of new JourneyWoman branded travel accessories. Over the past two years, we’ve asked you for advice on items you would find practical when travelling – and you gave us great feedback!
Our new JourneyWoman accessories are made in the most sustainable way possible, with recycled products. It is also important to me that we give back, so a percentage of all sales will be donated to non-profits, as we’ve been doing throughout the pandemic through our events, webinars and book clubs.
You can visit our new JourneyWoman Shop HERE.
You’ll find Evelyn’s original rectangular luggage tag and a smaller square luggage tag perfect for backpacks; two colourful travel notebooks to record your travel stories; and a “Travel the World” pen – all of which are made from recycled materials and soy-based inks using manufacturers in the US and Canada sourced by Ethical Swag, a Cape Breton, Nova Scotia B Corp.
Supporting Women Artists
I’m particularly excited about our adorable turquoise Sassy Flamingo travel bandana, designed by Dr. Mary Clark from our Women’s Advisory Council. I hope to partner with other designers and artists like Mary in the JourneyWoman community on future products, so please reach out to me at email@example.com if you have original art you’d like to share on our products!
If you have any questions, please reach out or read our FAQ, which includes information on shipping and delivery time. If you purchase a product, we’d love to see a photo of you using it and share it on our social media channels. I also invite you to make a $1.99 donation to Tree Sisters to help reforest the earth when you purchase any of our products.
Thank you for all your contributions and ideas! I hope you enjoy these new accessories and I hope they help you connect with each other when you travel!
