Company Description

Cora makes organic tampons and pads.

300 million girls and women use rags, plastics, sand, and ash to manage their periods; there’s a 90% decrease in school dropout rates when girls have access to menstrual supplies. Cora’s mission is to empower women by providing safe menstruation products. For every month’s supply of products purchased, Cora provides a month’s supply and education to a girl in need in developing countries. For every Fearless Necklace sold they provide a girl in Kenya with a year’s supply of pads. For any products sold in Target, they donate a percentage of profits to ZanaAfrica, which delivers reproductive health and sanitary pads to adolescent girls.

To protest the U.S. tampon tax, Cora pays the sales tax for all of their online sales; they’ve partnered with nonprofits to donate over 100k products to women across the U.S. Their products are made with 100% Certified Organic cotton, with GOTS Certification to ensure they’re healthy for people and the environment — it’s a form of radical transparency, in an industry known for obscuring ingredients. They partner with the Mile High Workshop in Denver, CO, where women transitioning out of addiction, incarceration, or homelessness package their products.

They offer a free trial of their products, which you can purchase online and at certain Target locations.
