Initially we knew that there was a better way to shop for tampons than running to the drugstore at the last minute... We are on a mission to convert women from buying traditional feminine hygiene product to using organic tampons.
(PRWEB) January 11, 2016
With the recent attention brought upon harmful ingredients in traditional feminine hygiene products, many women are looking for a healthier alternative to the traditional products they have been using. Kali is the latest brand to join the marketplace for better-for-you feminine essentials with their first shipment sent in December 2015.
Kali provides 100% certified organic cotton and biodegradable tampons through a convenient monthly subscription service that is also socially conscious. Kali Tampons are free from chlorine bleach, synthetics, chemicals, and dyes, and are accompanied by natural feminine products to ease and enhance that time of the month.
Each Kali Box includes:
- 14 Kali Tampons, with your choice of absorbency [Regular, Super, or Half+Half]
- 10 Kali Wipettes, Individually Packed Pre-Moistened Towelettes Made with Organic Cotton
- The Mist, a Hydrating Rosewater Toner and Aromatherapy Spray
Kali uses the tagline, “Friends don’t let friends use nonorganic tampons,” to promote what Co-Founders, Sara Shake and Jonna Piira, call the Tampon Revolution. “Initially we knew that there was a better way to shop for tampons than running to the drugstore at the last minute,” says Shake, “but now Kali represents much more than that. We are on a mission to convert women from buying traditional feminine hygiene products to using organic tampons. We are shedding light on how important it is to know what is going in your body, and make an educated choice on the products you use.”
And the word is spreading. With the help of brand ambassadors aptly titled Kali Girls and organic living enthusiasts throughout the country, Kali shipped their first boxes on December 20th, 2015 to arrive in time for the New Year. A Kali subscription costs $25 per month and includes free shipping; subscribers can pause or cancel anytime.
In addition to providing an organic alternative, Kali wanted to create a culture of giving from the beginning. Piira explains, “The process of choosing a partner organization was something that we spent a lot of time on. We knew that we wanted a female-centric charity, and when the opportunity to work with Girl Up arose, we knew that is was perfect fit.”
Girl Up, the United Nations Foundation’s adolescent girl empowerment campaign, is led by a community of half a million passionate advocates who raise funds and awareness to help the hardest to reach girls living in places where it is hardest to be a girl. The campaign knows that girls are the most powerful force for change, and when they’re educated, healthy, safe, and counted, they can transform their communities.
“We are so excited to partner with Kali,” said Melissa Hillebrenner Kilby, Director of Girl Up. “Like Kali, Girl Up is on a mission to empower girls around the world to be confident, because a confident girl is powerful. We look forward to working with Kali to unite girls to change the world.”
