WHO ARE ORGANICUP?
Founded in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2012 these guys have been on a plastic-free journey longer than I have. Normally, I'd write a little blurb about the company here, but I think they sum it up really nicely themselves:
"We believe no woman should be held back by her body. We believe period products should not contain harmful chemicals nor absorb natural bodily secretions, resulting in infections. Periods should not be the cause of major pollution. And they should never, ever be a source of shame."
