More love for you – and the environment.

We want to help menstruators to minimize their CO_2 footprint. But we also want to give you more self love. That’s why we have a focus on a comfortable design, sustainable materials and pads that are easy to get. Conventional pads are made plastic or cotton and  both materials are harmful to the environment. Cotton spend more than 5000 l of water and a huge amount of pesticides.

Put an end to plastic in nature.

Did you know that sanitary towels are one of the top-ten plastic products that end up in nature? That is why we use hemp fibres that can be produced using five times less water compared to cotton. The plant we use does not require pesticides or other chemicals, and its fibre yield is three times higher than that of cotton. This means that we can use a third of the land area to produce the same yield. The vast majority of sanitary towels on the market today consists of 90 % plastic, which is made from crude oil. Plastic made from crude oil has a large CO2 footprint, which is why we avoid it in our products. Instead, we use materials like bio-foil, which is certified for home composing and has a CO2 footprint that is about ten times smaller than the plastic that is used today.

Put an end to plastic in nature.

Did you know that sanitary products are on the top 10 list of plastic products in the nature? That is why we use hemp. Hemp fibres only use 1/5 of the water compared to cotton. Hemp doesn’t need any pesticides and has an output of fibers that is 3 times higher than cotton. The conventional sanitary pads on the market today consists of 90% plastic made from crude oil. This plastic has a high CO_2 emission which is why we avoid this. Instead we use a biofoil made from starch that is certified for home compostable and has a CO_2 footprint that is 10 times less than the plastic that is used today.

UN Global Goals at the core

Clean water and sanitation

Clean water is an essential and scarce resource. Conventional production of personal hygiene products uses cotton, which requires huge amounts of water to process. Also, pesticides are used during cultivation, which contributes to groundwater contamination. At Mewalii, we want to change this. That is why our products are made from hemp fibres that contain no pesticides and require far less water to produce. The hemp plant we use in our production grows and thrives without pesticides or other chemicals.

Responsible consumption and production

With our communication, including media and packaging, we want to share knowledge about how to ensure a sustainable lifestyle. But we don’t just talk the talk – we walk the walk and lead the way. Our pioneering work entails that we maintain a 360-degree approach to sustainability. This includes our production, where we only use materials that contain no pesticides and are grown in Europe to avoid long transport. It also includes our choice of packaging material and the decision not to post subscription boxes every month – also to limit transport. It is important for us to remain transparent, ensuring that we can inspire other companies and put pressure on them to ensure more sustainable production. Our goal is to have the lowest carbon footprint in the entire personal hygiene market.
