Take it away Victoria…
“In a culture afraid to talk about women’s bodies, we want to embrace an event that happens to half of the population every month that is still a taboo. We provide women with a box full of goodies, delivered right to their door within hours or monthly by subscription. All the items contained are specially selected to naturally counter unpleasant symptoms, resulting in a more comfortable and happy period. KudlBox is a company which revolves around beating the period stigma and raising respect and awareness surrounding women’s health. KudlBox aims to remain an eco-friendly and cruelty free company, and will only work with companies that share this ethos. Every time you buy a KudlBox, part of the money goes into charities that supply hygiene products to women, that do not have access to them and charities that support women’s education, health and dignity.”
