What are your sustainability practices?

We believe in creating a world where people with periods—and the planet—thrive. These are just some of our initial sustainability practices, with more on the way: Flex Disc generates 60% less waste than tampons and pads. Although it's a single-use product, it's designed for longer wear (up to 12 hours) and holds as much blood as three super tampons. This means less plastic waste going to landfill when compared to traditional period products.

The reusable Flex Cup, made with 100% medical-grade silicone, lasts for years when properly cared for—as does our new Reusable Disc.

Our Biodegradable Wipes are made with plant cellulose and are flushable per INDA guidelines. They're even compostable.  All our products are made in the USA and Canada, meaning fewer carbon emissions thanks to shorter journeys from production to our warehouse in California. Since one-fifth of worldwide carbon emissions are caused by transport, we’re committed to keeping our production local and reducing our impact. If you have sustainability suggestions for us, we’d love to hear them—so please get in touch!
