One January is an ethical activewear company that makes sustainable athletic apparel from recycled plastics. We are committed to supporting global sport opportunities for women impacted by war.
Meet the Founder
I created One January to connect women across borders to rise up and push boundaries on and off the field. As an athlete, I’ve seen the difficulties some women face simply to go for a jog. I believe when more women have opportunities to play sports, more women will become leaders. It's time to level the playing field and get on it.
We’re an ethical activewear company based in Austin, Texas that makes sustainable apparel from recycled plastics. We have committed to match $1 donation for every $1 we make to support global sport and leadership opportunities for women impacted by war.
I've seen the work sports can do in a conflict zone first hand. I worked alongside NATO troops as a Journalist in Afghanistan from 2015 to 2021. While working at NATO's Headquarters in Kabul I started training the first Afghan women to swim, bike, and run with my nonprofit She Can Tri. In 2020, we made history as She Can Tri's Zeinab became the first Afghan woman to finish an IRONMAN event. Our top two athletes both went on to earn scholarships to study in the United States.
To launch She Can Tri, in 2018, I also took on my own challenge, and became the first woman in the world to complete six IRONMAN triathlons on six continents within one year. Also, in 2018, my two-part series about the double standard for women in the U.S. Marine Corps was nominated for an Emmy.
If you'd like to get in touch I'm available for online programs, media interviews, podcasts and keynotes on the following topics: women in innovation, women in high performance, and using sports as a vehicle for social change for yourself and others. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get in touch.
Go be a badass!

Make $1 Give $1
Millions are born into conflict or extreme poverty each year - many don't even know their date of birth. If they make it to apply for official documents later in life they get assigned a day - One January. Named for those individuals we will work to empower them by giving 50% of our net profits to our non-profit partner, She Can Tri, to provide sports and leadership opportunities to women and girls impacted by war - truly changing the perception of what women can do worldwide.
