Tsuno sells disposable, sustainable bamboo fibre sanitary pads.
They are a social enterprise, so 50% of profits are donated to charities that focus on empowering women, with the main focus being education and menstrual support. Tsuno has a current agreement with One Girl, who provide education scholarships and sanitary pads to marginalised girls in Sierra Leone and Uganda.
Tsuno pads are made from a natural bamboo (not viscose- which means no harsh chemicals used to process it) and corn fibre top sheet, individually wrapped in biodegradable sleeves, and finally packaged in recyclable cardboard boxes. There has also been no chlorine or dioxin bleach used in the manufacturing process.
Tsuno hope to develop a 100% biodegradable product, however it is important to note, at this stage, the bottom layer is a breathable polyethylene film to ensure the pad is leak proof and does the job it’s made to do efficiently, and will be used until they can find a suitable alternative biodegradable material.
