All JuJu packaging is designed and printed locally, using recyclable paper and plant-based inks. We also use a local packaging assembly service that provides employment opportunities to individuals of varying abilities and skill levels who may otherwise experience challenges with entering the workforce.

 


Giving Back and Partnerships

Access to menstrual hygiene products is a major issue for people around the world, especially in communities that are economically disadvantage or where there is strong shame and stigma attached to menstruation. We believe that all people with periods should be empowered to care for their bodies and be free from discrimination that prevents them from participating in social, cultural or educational activities during menstruation.

This is why we are proud supporters of charities ‘Share the Dignity’ and ‘Days for Girls’. Both of these organisations are committed to ending period poverty through providing personal care products and health education to disadvantaged people within Australia and abroad.
