This spring, as DIY women rev up their jigsaws, pull out hand tools and gear up their sanders, they need to do it safety and with style. 

About 50% of Canadians need safety gear for their profession or personal projects, and half of them are women.

Often women have had to resort to mens’ safety gear, but Moxie Trades is making that a thing of the past.

“When I started on one of my first projects, I was shocked when I went looking for pink work boots, or any other work boots made for me, that I couldn’t find them,” says Marissa McTasney founder of Moxie Trades.

“”Since then I’ve made it my mission to create a line of safety gear for women that is 100% certified, made for a woman and has a flare of style.”

“Women deserve the very best quality, the very best fit and the very best style.” 

Moxie Trades and the Calgary Sun have teamed up to provide four prize packs to give away to lucky readers.  Eachcontains a pink hard hat, tool belt and safety glasses ($90 value), plus Black & Decker 12V Max lithium ion drill ($59).

For full line of up Moxie’s safety gear, visit Mark’s Work Wearhouse, the Work Authority or Jobsite Workwear in the Calgary area.
