Cheers to the Freakin' Weekend (Even in Quarantine)

Lately, I have been feeling like my weekdays and weekends are blurring together. I can’t keep track of the date, I tend to have the same routine 24/7, and that exciting feeling you get waking up on a Friday morning has slowly faded away. Before quarantine, differentiating your days kind of happened naturally. We had a work schedule, classes to get to, public transportation times, meetings, and appointments. Structure helped keep our days separate. While the WFH lifestyle first felt like a long weekend, there is less excitement for Saturdays and Sundays as time in quarantine goes on. As soon as we get out of this, I for sure won’t take for granted getting to go bar hopping with friends,...

It's OK to have a Complicated Relationship with Sustainability

It’s OK to have a Complicated Relationship with Sustainability Let’s be real, if I were to define my relationship with the planet as if it were a Facebook status, it’d be: It’s Complicated.    As an entrepreneur leading an earth-friendly brand, I put a lot of pressure on myself to live the life I preach, but I am nowhere near perfect. I don’t live a strict raw vegan life, I occasionally find myself stuck using a single use fork or plate, and I’m definitely not like the incredible Zero Waste Shop founder that can fit all her trash from a year in a tiny mason jar (props to you, you’re incredibly inspiring!). I often find myself feeling a lot of...

How to Have a Healthy Relationship with Social Media

Do you cringe when you see the amount of hours your screen time logged at the end of the week? We do too. We often get lost scrolling on and on in our feeds, realizing later that we’ve been drawn in. It can be the last thing we see before we go to sleep as well as the first thing we see when we wake up. It has become a way for people to stay connected when apart, network within the business world, generate new ideas, change a perspective, and even escape a reality. But to what extent can social media have on our mental health? There is a correlation with the increase of depression that has risen in tandem...

The Unexpected History of the Menstrual Cup

We are so excited to announce our new product of menstrual cups!  With the rise in popularity of menstrual cups, you are probably just as curious as we are in where they came from and why now? Turns out patents for menstrual cups date back to the 1850s! This beats the first pads by a whole decade and even the modern tampons by a half century! These early dated patents were mostly just inventive and never quite made it to the market.  The first modernized menstrual cup, like the ones we use today, was invented in 1937 by an American actress named Leona Chalmers. Her patent of the design was made from latex rubber. But in WWII, there was a...

What is the menstrual community doing to support COVID-19?

What the Menstrual Equity Activists are doing to Support COVID-19. Periods dont stop for a pandemic.  One out of every four menstruating individuals struggled to make ends meet before the outbreak to purchase the proper menstrual care products for themselves. Stores have shown shortages of not only toilet paper and hand sanitizer, but menstrual products as well due to people stocking up. According to I Support The Girls, homeless and domestic violence shelters are becoming desperate in need of supplies. Without the proper period care supplies, menstruators may be forced to use their products longer than usual or be driven towards other materials to fill the gaps.  So, what is our community doing about it?  I Support The Girls is...
