Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share a different type of subscription box with you. I was contacted by the Founder Molly Hayward and asked to inform my readers about CORA and what this subscription is all about. This is a very picture and word heavy post. I used alot of direct info from the company website so that I would get all the details correct. Keep reading to hear all about this box!
CORA is a monthly subscription box that delivers 100% organic tampons to you each month. They also provide free feminine products to girls in need from third world countries.

Here is what is said about CORA on the company website:

We see a mission where others see “that time of the month” Your period is a natural process—not something to be stigmatized. After all, it’s an essential part of all human life. That’s why we believe “that time of the month” should never be a source of shame, harm or uncertainty. (Also: excessively pink packaging.) And it should never keep a girl from getting her education. We’re committed to giving all women access to safe and effective period products as well as valuable and trustworthy information to educate and empower.

We promise to be:Relentlessly innovativeRadically transparentProfoundly humanUncommonly generous

It’s time to transform the experience of having a period—and make sure no woman or girl is left behind by her biology.

PASSION MEETS PURPOSEWE SEE a world where women can live fully-embodied—with confidence, pride and reverence for the awesome power of their female bodies.WE WILL be a tireless advocate for the health and equality of women and girls globally—and a trusted source for pioneering products and information." 

"Every woman and girl on the planet had a safe and effective way to manage her period?

With over 100 million girls lacking access to adequate menstrual products around the globe—causing them to miss schooldays during their period which can often lead to dropping out by the age of 14.We want to turn “what if” into reality.How? For every month’s supply of Cora you receive we give a month’s supply of sustainable pads to a girl in a developing country so she can do anything during her period.


Lots of people ask us if the products we give to girls in India are the same as the ones we sell. Nope—we give something better.Instead of sending products abroad—which can undermine the local economy—we partner with social enterprise organizations globally that are revolutionizing period management. Our shared goal: to empower women and girls in need.


355 million Indian women and girls menstruate on a monthly basis. However:
  • Only 12% have access to sanitary napkins
  • 200 million have a poor understanding of menstrual hygiene and related healthcare
  • One in four Indian girls drops out of school when she gets her period


We’ve partnered with some of the leading organizations in the global movement for accessible menstrual hygiene products within developing communities. Every sanitary pad is all-natural, sustainable and biodegradable, plus they’re produced in small-scale manufacturing units in rural villages and urban slums to support the local economy and employ the women who live there." https://cora.life/pages/cause
Here is how it works:
  • YOU get your supply of Cora.
  • WE add up our month’s total sales—then buy the equivalent supply of sustainable pads from our local partners in India.
  • A COMMUNITY sets up small-scale manufacturing units to produce the pads.
  • LOCAL WOMEN are employed and paid a living wage.
  • WOMEN’S HEALTH education—including reproductive and menstrual wellness—is provided to empower employees (and their daughters).
  • THE PADS we’ve purchased are distributed to girls in local schools who otherwise couldn’t access or afford them.  https://cora.life/pages/cause

The CORA subscription is $9-$18 a month and is tailored to your specific needs.
The first box comes with a signature kit. The kit includes a keepsake little black storage box along with 18 regular and 18 super absorbency tampons.
They are 100% premium organic cotton tampons with BPA-free plastic applicators. Their soft touch rappers are quiet and discreet.
Store your tampons in these cute little containers that look like lipstick tubes. Give one of these to a friend and if she signs up, you'll both get a free month's supply of tampons.


Lastly, it comes with this cute little clutch to hold your tampons and whatever else you want to put in it. The clutch is made with vegan leather and you won't have to hide your tampons up your sleeve anymore.
I really love the idea of this subscription box. It is great for people that like natural organic products and don't like how many chemicals are in regular store bought tampons. I like the cute accessories that come with the subscription which allow you to go about your week with discreetly hidden tampons.  Most of all I love Cora's cause. Giving back to women and girls who can't afford feminine products each month is so great.  Lastly, the fact that they are helping provide jobs and business to these communities in 3rd world countries is amazing.
