OUR STORY

 

Viv was created by like-minded eco-conscious menstruators looking to reduce plastic waste in their own lives.

When we learned how harmful traditional period care is on the Earth, (like 1 pad taking 800 years to break down, yikes!) we knew there needed to be a change in the space.

Our mission is to bring earth-friendly and toxin-free products to the hands of all menstruators.
