Have you ever wondered how your period is related to sustainability? This is what erdbeerwoche is all about: sustainable feminine hygiene! While others still talk about people, planet, profit, we talk about people.planet.PERIOD. As a young start-up in Vienna we address the topic of menstruation in a positive way and try to break this last taboo in our society. At the same time we are offering alternatives to conventional pads and tampons which are often related to health and environmental problems.
In 2011 we founded our business, we created a website and a web shop and started our social media activities (blog, facebook, twitter). Moreover we began a round table session, called “tampon – talks” and we participated at four fairs on green products in Austria and Germany. On December 14th we will have our first tampon talk at the Hub. If you want to join please write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the next year we are looking forward to producing our own range of organic tampons and launching our erdbeerwoche organic and fair trade pants.
We want to continue the revolution of feminine hygiene in Austria and the rest of the world!
