3 quick questions to Lova and Amanda
WHAT ARE YOUR DRIVING FORCES?
To help women in their everyday lives. Both here in Sweden but also in developing countries. Also, to inspire other women to have the courage to go their own way and never be dependent on anyone.
HOW DOES YOUR COMPANY WORK WITH SUSTAINABILITY?
For us, social sustainability is where all human basic needs are met. That is what we are working towards every single day. We want to make sure that no girls' school attendance or any woman's work effort depends on if they are on their period or not.
There is a lot of taboo related to this subject in a lot of countries and we want to be a part of that change. In some parts of the world women are not even allowed to sleep inside of the house when they are on their period.
Due to the fact that most of our market right now is in Scandinavia we have chosen to have our production in Sweden to minimize emissions. We have also chosen to have our manufacturer of our menstrual products close to us, located in Poland. And within Sweden, all of our shipping is climate compensated.
WHAT IS YOUR MAIN GOAL?
Our goal is to make sanitary protection in bathrooms as natural and accessible as toilet paper and soap. In that way we can be a part of creating a more equal society.
