You probably use them monthly, so why not support a sustainable sanitary products brand that also empowers women around the world?
We are all about sustainability here at Honeycombers Hong Kong. From living free from single-use plastic to cruelty-free makeup and vegan skincare, we like to cause as little harm to the planet as possible, and if we can buy from social enterprises that help others, then we will always do that too. Enter Tsuno, a sanitary product brand from Australia that creates sustainable tampons and pads while giving a large percentage of their profits to charity. Plus it’s founded by a ladyboss – #triplethreat!
You need some Tsuno products in your life
Five years ago, Roz Campbell, founder of Tsuno, created the brand when she was at university, after her lecturer brought up the charity One Girl while discussing global issues on menstrual hygiene.
“I thought that I could make a difference by making a product that was organic, and as eco-friendly as possible, whilst also supporting women in need and giving girls a better chance in life,” says Campbell.
Tsuno products are sanitary pads made from sustainable bamboo fibre and organic cotton tampons, making them better for your body, and for the earth, plus 50% off the profits from buying them go to charities that focus on empowering women, which is pretty rad.
On top of that, these products look absolutely stunning, with packaging designed by Australian artists, including: Erin Lightfoot, Tim Royall, Evi O, Eloise Rapp, Andrea Shaw, Obus, Abbey Rich, Mirador, Kip & Co and Natalie Byrne.
Tsuno is currently working with One Girl, the same brand that inspired Campbell in first place, with profits helping to provide education and scholarships and sanitary pads to marginalised girls in Sierra Leone and Uganda, and we think that’s pretty great.
