NATURAL

THAT’S HOW YOUR PERIODS SHOULD BE

Freda provides the highest-quality, 100% organic cotton tampons and eco-friendly pads, free from the chemicals and perfumes you find in popular brands. If you’re like us, you’ve never really thought about what goes in your tampons. An average woman uses 12,000 tampons during her life in her menstrual cycle so it’s worth checking. We did and found that big brand manufacturers aren’t actually required to give a full disclosure of what’s in their tampons. What we do know is that generally tampons are made from cotton, rayon and synthetic fibres. They contain odour neutralisers, dyes, pesticides and perfumes, and an undisclosed mixture of chemicals that have been linked to allergies, rashes and endocrine dysfunction. Conventional tampons also contain GMOs, and if we’re concerned about GMOs in our food we should also be concerned about using a GMO tampon! The vaginal wall is permeable, allowing toxins into our bloodstream. Wondering about what goes into your tampons now? Our tampons only have one ingredient : 100% CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTON

CONVENIENT

THAT’S HOW YOUR NEXT PERIOD SHOULD BE

Another month, another period, another trip to the same shop for the same mass-market pads and tampons you’ve been using since you were 13. There’s got to be a better way. Here’s an idea… You tell us exactly what you need, we send it out. Done. And since no two periods are alike, we don’t have a one-size-fits-all solution. Best of all, you don’t even need to be at home, our standard deliveries are letterbox friendly.

RESPONSIBLE

THAT’S HOW WE SHOULD ALL BE

Freda is a company with a conscience. We care about you, the environment and women around the world who don’t have access to sanitary pads. Our driving force is to start a meaningful conversation. We want to be a gathering place for a growing collective of conscious women who aren’t afraid to use their voice or their purse to change the way things are, and seek a better way – both for environmental sustainability and universality of access to sanitary pads.

OUR SOCIAL MISSION

At Freda we believe in universal access to sanitary products for girls and women. We’re building networks with global campaigners to push this agenda forward. We ask questions to stimulate debate and we explore the most effective ways to push our agenda forward and we take part in local and international forums that advocate the advancement of menstrual health education and management across the world. In this way we hope to enable more schoolgirls to have unfettered access to education and that women everywhere are able to manage their monthly periods with the dignity that we all deserve.

 

OUR ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

At Freda we’re committed to reduce our impact on the environment by supplying products which are natural, organic and as eco-friendly as possible. We have carefully selected our supply partners in Europe based on their environmental credentials . We use 100% Certified Organic Cotton to produce our premium tampon range and are working with our supplier to explore bio-plastic applicator alternatives which will be biodegradable.

Our sanitary pad partner uses 100% renewable energy and produces zero landfill waste. We will always use the highest possible content of renewable and sustainable raw materials whilst ensuring that the performance of our pads is not compromised. Above all, we believe in transparency and a detailed description of what’s in our products will always be provided.

At Freda we are also working on how to reduce waste and increase recycling. Given that the average European discards 159kg of packaging material each year, reducing the amount of packaging has become a top priority for consumers. We cannot guarantee zero-packaging but we strive for more and more efficient packaging solutions without compromising the integrity of our products.
