When I was in college, I remember RIC branded items being geared more to men than women. I remember settling on a keychain, not too exciting, but at least I showed school spirit. When I saw that my friend Jennifer Walsh was launching a first to market collegiate beauty brand, I was stoked and wondered where she was between 1992-96.
Pride & Glory is a bath and body brand with a purpose. 2% of profits from the sale of each item goes back to the charity of the school through Pride & Glory’s trust, Inspiration Nations. Since those attending college have pride in their school, they also tend to have pride in the city where their college is located. Knowing that they are helping build a stronger community when they purchase a Pride & Glory product will help to teach them a way of giving back that they can take ownership of.
There are currently 8 universities represented in the Pride & Glory collection, with many more jumping on board. I know that if Rhode Island College was among them, I’d be scooping them up! Each college’s colors and logo are proudly embodied in each product. The scents are unisex, making it equally attractive to both men and women.
Jennifer is pure genius and delving into a portion of the beauty space that is untouched – and honestly, that is unheard of in the beauty industry! If you attend any of the following universities or are an alumni, make sure to snag some Pride & Glory!
