On a trip abroad, we realised that not all children are able to access hygiene products like underwear and sanitary pads. We also noticed the billions of people inject money into the world every day, buying every day items like underwear.
That is why we decided to start a company where some of the profits could be a force for change. The thing is, we don’t believe that a product donation model can really be sustainable. So we decided to establish local production that employs people with a distance to the labour market, encourage entrepreneurship and create an educational program about health and hygiene in Tanzania. Children in local schools join workshops on hygiene, sanitation, puberty and menstrual health and receive products during classes. That way we create a lasting impact with your purchase.
We didn’t want to help some people at the expense of others. So we put a lot of thought into how the underwear we sell on our webshop is produced. We happily share how our underwear is made, the environmental and health factors we consider and most importantly, what we’d like to improve in the future.
