At Woven Royal our goal is for our hair and humanity to prosper and flourish. We design, create and sell hat and hair accessories for curly and voluminous hair. Our premiere product is the Afrona; a hat that keeps the shape of your curls and volume intact. It can be worn to bed or all day and when it is taken off your hair will look just as it did before it was put on, big and beautiful. Our products are made by artisans and sewers in the Dominican Republic. We focus in areas impacted by poverty and give them a market to showcase their talent and pay them fair wages to support their craft. www.wovenroyal.com
At Orvel we fight plastic pollution so that we can continue to create and do the things that we love. How? By creating events and informative content that is easily shareable on social media and consulting companies on how they can reduce their plastic waste footprint. The reason we take this approach and not just go out to sea and clean up the plastic in the sea like other companies is that plastic production is expected to increase by 40% over the next decade and globally only 9% of the plastics produced are recycled. Instead of treating the symptoms of this problem we are focused on curing it. The Ocean is responsible for 70% of the oxygen we breathe! If the ocean suffocates so do we. Let’s not let that happen!

The idea to create the irish moss skin & hair treatment came to light during April 2018. After some research and becoming comfortable with the ingredients being used, the product began being sampled. Early July 2018, the first unit was sold at a poetry event and a sample was donated. Both women, one being a loctician (hairdresser for locs) and a peer from the CEO’s urban farming apprenticeship program who also has locs, provided supportive feedback after use. Seeing many women of color pushing for chemical free products, as there has been links to diseases such as fibroids, cancer, etc., emphasized the importance of these ingredients. Community is valuable and seeing healthier outcomes across the board is vital.

Best Life Home Cleaning
I’m from Brazil. I was a nurse there, but I can’t practice the nursing field here. I started cleaning homes for another company and have been doing so for about one year now and it’s gone well. I’ve decided to turn this new job into a business and so that’s why I’ve joined EforAll. I’m still not 100% fluent in English but I’m taking classes and hoping to improve it a lot throughout this course.
