YOU

Sourcing sustainable materials from ethical manufacturers is important to us. For every stride we make in our period advocacy, we will be conscious of the footprints we are leaving behind

1
100% organic cotton, always:

Our product journey begins in Mesin, Turkey, where our cotton is farmed. When we learned that 65% of the world's cotton is grown via forced labor and harmful farming methods -- we went on a hunt to find a supplier that grows pesticide-free, chemical-free, fragrance-free, hypoallergenic, biodegradable, and ethically sourced cotton. Once our cotton is harvested and processed, it hops on a ship to Germany (to be turned into tampons), and to China (to be turned into pads)!

How organic august pads are made

Our 100% organic cotton and fully biodegradable pads are made with our trusted manufacturing partner based in Jiangmen, Guangdong City, China. Our factory manufactures sustainable products with in-line inspections and yearly audits to ensure that the factory is running smoothly, your products are top quality, and their employees are happy!

Before locking in our partnership, we did our due diligence by partnering with Intertek to run a second round of checks to ensure the factories were up to our high levels of ethical and environmental standards. For a full list of certifications click here!

how organic august tampons are made:

August tampons are made from 100% organic cotton and are fully biodegradable, with recyclable applicators. Our manufacturing partner is based in Saxony, Germany. What stood out to us about our tampon manufacturers is that they went above and beyond the regular certifications of their competitors! With an enforced code of ethics, annual sustainability reports, as well as an official commitment to the UK 2015 Modern Slavery Act, we are proud to stand by a manufacturer that wears their values on their sleeve!

our august packaging:

Our rad packaging is made of recycled materials in Moorestown, New Jersey, just a short 97 mile drive from our fulfillment center in Middletown, PA. When you’re done with them, send them back to where they came from: the recycling bin!

How we distribute august period care to you: our fulfillment center

Our products travel by boat from all over the world and meet at our fulfillment center in Middletown Pennsylvania. Instead of each individual order making a solo trip across the Atlantic, we use a fulfilment center as our home base in the USA. By shipping full containers to Pennsylvania and sending out your orders from there, we keep our carbon footprint , prices, and shipment time low!

Our supply chain is carbon neutral — all emissions generated from the production and distribution of our products are offset through trusted partners. Click here to learn more!

We are committed to being fully transparent when it comes to the manufacturing, distribution, and sustainability of our products, because greenwashing is NOT it.

We recognize that our goals to change culture around periods cannot be done in a day, so our promise to you is that we will continue to learn and grow together. We will never stray away from our mission: To eliminate period stigma and democratize access to period care.

Expect a full impact and sustainability report from us at the end of every quarter. Get excited for our first one dropping August 2021!
