I know, I’m a retailer. We’re meant to get you to buy MORE. But this isn’t about sales figures, or profit margins, or market share.

People assume that we launched our cloth sanitary products because single use products aren’t environmentally sustainable. Of course, that’s part of the reason. But there’s something else that motivates us. And that’s period poverty.
