Tsuno pads are made from a natural bamboo and corn fibre top sheet, individually wrapped in biodegradable sleeves, and finally packaged in recyclable cardboard boxes.
Bamboo is one of the most eco-friendly and sustainable fibres available due to its fast growth-rate, low demands on resources and natural resistance to pests and fungi. It is also super absorbent, breathable, soft and comfortable, antibacterial, and just generally amazing!
There has also been no chlorine or dioxin bleach used in the manufacturing process. Tsuno's tampons are certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), and are registered under the Therapeutic Goods Administration. They believe using organic cotton is a non-negotiable for their tampons, and that pesticides, fertilisers and unhealthy farming practices have no place in our products, or our bodies!
All net profit of Tsuno sanitary pads goes to One Girl in support of its menstrual supplies and scholarships for girls in Sierra Leone and Uganda.
