we live in an age where the curtains are being lifted-and the ingredients that go into
everything from the food we are consuming, to the makeup we are wearing and
the tampons we are using are being exposed and made plain for all to see.
for the most part, this knowledge grants consumers the power of choice. but what if
there is no choice? what frustrates me to no end with regard to organic products, from clothing
to food, is that the fact that they are undoubtedly better for you, but also more expensive.
and while many young women out there would consider themselves lucky to have
any period protection at all, only the privileged few have access to the sort
that are chemical free and organic.
here is a bit of cora creator, molly's, inspiring story:
" while travelling throughout developing countries, i saw how menstruation negatively
affects girls and women who are poor. unable to afford menstrual products, they
resort to using old rags, newspaper, animal dung, and tree bark- even pieces of
old mattress- all of which can cause infections and reproductive health problems,
not to mention humiliating leaks.
later, when i learned that many feminine products sold in the US contain substances
that are potentially harmful to our health, like synthetics and pesticides linked to
endocrine disruption, cancer, and other devastating illnesses, i became afraid of
my own health and the well-being of my sisters, friend and the women i love.
i knew there had to be a better future of all women, in every part of the world.
and that's what we're creating through cora."
|*i was provided cora samples for review, but all opinions expressed are my own*|
cora has been created to modernize women's periods. offering tampons that are 100% organic
cotton that are fragrance-free and hypoallergenic with bpa-free plastic applicators,
vegan leather goods with which to transport them and easy, fast deliveries-
these tampons are EVERYTHING... and the cherry on top is for every box sold,
a box is donated to young girls in need.
Every woman and girl on the planet had a safe and effective way to manage her period?
WHAT IF you could do something about it?
