In honor of Menstrual Hygiene Day, we wanted to take a moment and shine some light on the importance of creating a world where no person is limited because of their period.
 
In fact, Kind Cup believes that menstrual justice is social justice. Our commitment to increasing awareness and creating a positive social impact are part of why we started this company, and we are so thrilled to be sharing the journey with all of you!
 
On that note, we wanted to provide you all with a brief update on our Kind Impact.

Kind Cup is honored to be working with local non-profit, Direct Relief, who has distributed our donated cups to safety-net health facilities that care for uninsured and underserved populations. Our cups have gone to facilities in the Direct Relief U.S. network in Virginia, Arizona, Maine, Colorado, Texas, Nevada, and nine locations throughout our home state of California.
 
We look forward to being able to further increase our Kind Impact as we grow so that we can continue to fulfill the expressed need for a high quality, sustainable period product.
 
Are you as passionate about menstrual justice and eradicating period poverty as we are? Want to learn more about improving menstrual health? Click here to check out a report funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Remember, every opportunity you have to discuss and normalize menstruation, you are actively participating in creating a positive change for people everywhere! :)

Microplastics are contaminating numerous food sources from the seafood we eat to the water we drink. And we, humans, are ingesting the equivalent of one credit card of plastic a week!

But there's hope. If Kind Cup, a small, bootstrapped startup can make the commitment to being plastic free, then larger companies can ditch plastics for good.
