Cora is an organic tampon company that provides monthly boxes by mail. The subscription box is available on cora.life and at some Target locations (find the nearest one here). The company's founders have put a lot of thought into every aspect of their product and I believe it's because they have a well-rounded view of a woman's experience. The company was created by two people with similar interests. Molly traveled the world and saw how women without money and resources struggled in extreme ways during that time of the month. Morgen's interest began when he empathized for his wife's forgetfullness and anxiety towards buying tampons every month, and later grew into a concern for the chemicals that are used in traditional tampons. Cora now donates a month's supply to a woman in a developing country for every box each subscriber receives.
Cora provides a few additional black accessories that store new tampons; the Little Black Clutch, Little Black Box, and Stowaways. The "little black clutch" stores enough tampons for your estimated daily needs. The "little black box" holds the remainder of your monthly supply at home. And "stowaways" which resemble a tube of lipstick and is made out of cardboard are meant to further disguise the tampons while you are on the go. I love the sleek and discreet neutral packaging. The wrapper is "noiseless" which further aids in preventing the advertisement of your business. The applicator is currently made of plastic which troubled me. This was surprising because the company provides biodegradable tampons. However, I saw that they are aiming to create a more eco friendly, "bio-based plastic" applicator on their website. The tampons are short and expand width wise which is said to be better for the cervix. The cotton tampons were comfortable to insert, wear throughout the day, and absorbed well.
