Founded in Whistler, BC in 2016, gogglesoc’s three founders developed a solution to scratched and scuffed goggle lenses with the gogglesoc: a stretchy microfiber cover made from recycled plastic bottles that comes in more than 50 designs. Their innovation was quickly embraced by the founders’ home Whistler ski resort and is now available in over 65 ski resorts and eight countries. The gogglesoc brings a convenient, stylish, customizable and sustainable design at a reasonable price point while protecting pricey lenses from the thrills and spills that come during après time, the commute to the base, the chairlift ride, and off-season storage. gogglesoc is committed to creating the smallest possible environmental footprint and gives back to winter sport communities with product donations to local nonprofits and partnerships with organizations such as Protect Our Winters.

Similar to Small Business Saturday and Giving Tuesday, WLW aims support a very specific business leader: Women! Women-Led Wednesday is designed empower women at the top through collective purchasing power and shining the spotlight on female-led brands.
Beyond the “Wednesday” shopping holiday, the Women-Led Wednesday (WLW) website will be an ever-growing and evolving discovery hub for the general public to discover (and shop) new women-led brands year-round.
Why is this important? Women are currently 50.8% of the population and 52% of the professional-level work force in the US, but only 25% of executives and senior management officials, 20% of board seats, and 6% of CEOs among S&P 500 companies. To put it even more poignantly, as of 2015 there were more CEOs name John than women of any name running S&P 1500 companies, according to a study published by the New York Times. Furthermore, according to a gender study conducted by Morgan Stanley, “More gender diversity, particularly in corporate settings, can translate to increased productivity, greater innovation, better decision-making, and higher employee retention and satisfaction.” Learn more at womenledwednesday.com
