Indigo & Iris // Episode 6
My latest ep sees me chatting with Hannah, the CEO of Indigo and Iris. Hannah, who has brought Indigo and Iris to life along with founder Bonnie, is based in Christchurch and also has a very interesting past life as co-funder of Little Yellow Bird - Safe to say I could have asked her a million questions!
Indigo and Iris is a make-up brand, but as it calls itself – a make-up brand that gives a damn! That's because 50% of the profits of their products go to charity. And that's not just a marketing ploy – the business started when founder Bonnie saw the Fred Hollows Foundation's amazing work in Vanuatu, and has since gone on to cure over 300 people's eyesight in the Pacific, all from sales of their first product – the Levitate Mascara.
Hannah and Bonnie have a lot of exciting plans in the works for Indigo and Iris, including their next launch – 4 shades of lipstick. I can't wait for you to hear all about what Hannah has learned along the way and how they plan to, eventually, be able to offer an entire face of makeup that is linked to making a positive difference in the world. Amazing!
I'm sorry this episode went a little longer than my usual 45 minutes - but Indigo and Iris is just such a wonderful business I couldn't bear to leave any questions out. Have a listen and you'll see what I mean...
