The average woman will use more than 10,000 tampons over her lifespan. That’s a lot of waste, and a Kensington entrepreneur is doing something about it while enacting some social good in India at the same time.
Founded by Molly Hayward, Cora sells monthly customized subscriptions for organic cotton tampons. The company also operates on a buy-one give-one model. Per Technical.ly Philly:
The company partners with local, women-run village factories in India that produce biodegradable sanitary pads. Cora, in partnership with other organizations in India, helps set up these partnerships, which provide a key source of revenue for the factories’ home communities. Cora then distributes the pads for free in India, so that girls who might not otherwise be able to go to school while on their period can do so in comfort.
