Juuni Is Australia's New Subscription Service for Organic Period Products
The cute boxes (with bonus gifts) arrive at your doorstep each month — just like Aunt Flow.
Nowadays there are subscription services for just about anything. Board Games? Check. Booze? Check. Legos? Check. Organic period products? You betcha. Meet Juuni, a subscription that delivers a customisable box of organic tampons, pads and liners to your doorstep each month.
If you're anything like us, every 28 days, you'll find yourself digging around the bottom of your bag or making a desperate run to the convenience store. To help save you from the stress of being caught out — because, face it, periods are stressful and annoying enough as they are — founder Eri Stewart (who's also behind Hard to Find) created a line of organic products that look and feel more like a gift set than a necessity.
Unlike your typical tampons, Juuni's products are bleach-free, pesticide-free and 100-percent biodegradable. The certified organic cotton is hypoallergenic and contains no synthetic dyes or fibres. The pads and liners also have an organic top sheet and the plastic wrappers are biodegradable, too.
Apart from the necessities, the well-designed boxes also include surprise gifts each month to help brighten up your week. And you can choose to include one of Juuni's face mask to boot, which contains aloe leaf, cucumber, pomegranate and green tea — all of which help soothe and brighten skin and combat hormonal skin break outs.
So, how does it work? You build your custom box with the likes of tampons ($3.99 for a ten-pack), pads ($3.20 for a five-pack) or liners ($3.20 for ten-pack) and choose if you want to receive deliveries every month or every three months (the latter works to be slightly better value and includes free shipping). All new customers get their first box free, too, and you can cancel whenever you want.
