There are hundreds of thousands of homeless living in the US today. They typically know where to get food and shelter, but it can be near impossible for homeless women to get the feminine hygiene essentials they need to safely manage their periods. Often times, they have nowhere to turn.
These women can't afford to buy pads or tampons, and they rarely have access to clean showers, which increases their risk of infection. Tampons and pads usually top the list of shelter needs, but they're rarely donated.
JOLIE ORGANIC has a mission to change that, and we invite you to join us so that women and girls everywhere have access to essential feminine hygiene products.
For every box we sell, we donate a JOLIE Care Pack of organic pads to women and girls in need in the United States and around the world.
Why Choose JOLIE ORGANIC?
All our products are made with 100% Certified Organic cotton, including the tampons.
Why does it matter? Because most tampons on the market are made of rayon, a synthetic material that comes from wood pulp.
Even tampons with "100% Natural Cotton" are made with the use of pesticides or herbicides, and often use chlorine in the bleaching process.
But you won’t find these listed on the box because the FDA doesn't require companies to disclose their ingredients.
Organic cotton is made without the use of herbicides or pesticides. It never contains chlorine or fragrance.

What’s the problem with menstrual health in the US today? Maybe you've heard of the #TamponTax…
Feminine hygiene products are taxed in most states even though many women can’t even afford them without the tax.
These gender-biased taxes on feminine hygiene products are unfairly taxing women for their biology, and the lawmakers pushing to remove these taxes are getting a huge wave of support from the public.
Our government offers food stamps to low-income people, but it doesn't offer financial assistance for tampons or pads because they are considered "luxury goods."
We don't know anyone who thinks of menstruation as a "luxury."
