How Is
Here We Flo Sustainable?

Learn how we keep it natural with our Eco-Friendly Period Care, Bladder Care & Sexual Wellness.

Materials By Mama Nature

We only use planet-friendly materials in our period care, bladder care, sexual wellness - so our messiest moments don’t make a mess of our planet.

Better Cotton

Certified organic cotton means no toxic substances on your bits & higher labour standards. It’s also ridiculously soft. Naturally!

Our period pants are made with BCI cotton (Better Cotton Initiative) which is great for your body + the environment.

Plant-Based Wrappers + Applicators

We use biodegradable + compostable plant cellulose for our pad, liner and tampon wrappers, and sugarcane biopolymer for our applicators (95% plant-based) - NO plastic here. 🙅‍♀️

Oeko-Tex Bamboo

Our bamboo is organic & edge-grown meaning it doesn’t replace food crops & certified by Oeko-Tex (it's tested for nasty chemical residues).

+ All of our outer packaging is made of FCS-certified recyclable cardboard and we’re vegan & cruelty-FREE!

Earth Changing Sex

Our Righteous Rubber Condoms are Climate neutral, meaning you can give back while getting some. 🍑

You can check out the latest projects we support via Climate Partner here or by scanning the barcode on the back of your XO! pack.

Peace, love + agroforestry

We are founding members of the Regenerative Rubber Initiative, which means we use Fair Agroforestry Latex: we cooperate directly with smallholders who earn fair wages & practice biodiverse, sustainable farming of rubber trees.

Our natural rubber condoms (once opened), biodegrade in under a year, whereas most condoms on the market take hundreds of years! 🤯

How does the regenerative rubber initiative work?

A latex processing factory in Thailand buys the raw material directly from agroforestry farmers within a premium pricing system.

After processing the natural rubber latex, it is sent to Malaysia where a manufacturer produces our condoms in a solar powered factory and then sold to you! The whole supply chain is fully traceable.

B*tches b bcorp'ing

The UK BCorp community is growing faster than ever.

There are now over 700 B Corps in the UK, across 56 industries with over 41,300 employees.

As a B Corp Pending business, we cannot wait to join this community making a positive impact!

What is a B Corp Business?

still got questions?

We're glad, we LOVE an eco-conscious babe. It's important to question brands to make sure that green washing is no where to be seen! 👀

If you can't find your answer here, please email hiya@hereweflo.co and our customer love team will have the answer you need.

Are you sustainable when it comes to transporting your products?
We keep our manufacturing processes local to the regions where the ingredients are sourced from, so that our overall carbon emissions are kept at a minimum.

We also aim to ship our products via sea most of the time for the same reason AND we offset our company CO2 emissions through organisations like Climate Partner and Ecologi.

As a small business, our aim is to become fully carbon-neutral by the end of 2021.💪
What are 'Sustainable Period Products'?
As opposed to the standard corporate period products (no ‘sanitary / hygiene products’ at Here We Flo, bye!), which are typically made of more than 90% non-recyclable plastic materials, we pride ourselves in offering alternatives that are both accessible + better for the planet!

We know not everyone will adapt to a menstrual cup or reusable alternative, so we're giving you a different option that's still better for us + the planet.

That's why we use either compostable, biodegradable or recyclable packaging for our products, and we use no nasties like harsh chemicals (buh-bye chlorine bleach🙅‍♀️), dyes, fragrances or allergens. Nothing but natural goodness here!🌱
Can I flush biodegradable tampons down the toilet?
Nooo. 🙅‍♀️

Please never flush any type of period care down the toilet regardless of biodegradability unless stated otherwise - It can wreak havoc on the water systems and wildlife. 🐠

We recommend you dispose of them in the general waste bin, and they will naturally biodegrade in landfill in a few years. How wonderful is that? In contrast, the existing corporate alternatives take 100+ years to biodegrade.👎
Is Here We Flo Bcorp certified?
Almost!

We are Bcorp pending, which means we are working hard to gather all the information ready for review and aim to be Bcorp certified within the year.🤞
“Great eco products I’ve been telling everyone “it’s like a cloud in your vagina”. So soft and comfortable to wear. i'll never go back.”
Laura
“I like the pads, they're comfortable & not too bulky. I'm gradually switching to eco friendly products where I can, so these are a great find. It's useful to have them arriving regularly in discreet packaging.”
Rosemary
“My daughter loves the products she doesn't get Cystitis from them and finds them more comfortable than the non eco brands.”
Mr. Jones
“Not only are they eco friendly but they are so so soft to the point where you will forget you are wearing them! I am so shocked how affordable they are for high quality materials used.”
