When you purchase sustainable period products, you affect the environment in two positive and impactful ways. First, you are reducing the huge demand for plastic, therefore, reducing plastic production – which is critical because the extraction, production and manufacturing of plastics release toxic pollution into the environment. Second, you reduce the amount of plastic entering the waste stream once that product has been used — this never breaks down — in polluting the ocean, landfills, and threatening the wildlife around us.
At Grace & Green we have tried to address some of these challenges. We craft a collection of premium quality period products which have been intelligently engineered and developed for the discerning modern woman, a woman who cares about her health, the environment, of social value and the importance of provenance and origin.
Started in January 2019, we are one of the United Kingdom’s first premium period care companies, which is something we are incredibly proud of. The launch essentially marked the end of three years of very intense behind-the-scenes work. During this time we worked with better raw materials, improved manufacturing processes, and an evolved style to provide people who menstruate with a sustainable alternative to menstrual products that was effective and kind to the earth.
The result is a premium, sustainable collection made from 100% organic cotton which is biodegradable, super absorbent, breathable and soft as well as antibacterial. No chlorine or dioxin bleach is used in the manufacturing process, and products are individually wrapped in biodegradable sleeves before being packaged in recyclable cardboard boxes. We even use renewable energy in our production!
