I know many women today (including myself) who still get embarrassed about my period. It doesn't matter if you're 12 and getting it for the first time, or 55 and getting it for the last. Society makes women getting their period feel embarrassed. It comes from an early age where we feel we need to hide our pads in our backpacks at school so the boys don't see or make fun of us. Or, bringing our purse to the bathroom at work because we can't just go around carrying a tampon. Even girl to girl we often don't talk about our periods. It's very hush-hush, privately kept to each woman. It's perfectly fine if a woman wants to keep it private: it's her choice! But she should never, ever feel like she has to keep it private due to embarrassment or shame.
Cora is a menstrual delivery service for your monthly needs. The essence of the company stems from women helping other women. For every box of products sent to your door each month, Cora gives a girl in a developing country her own month's worth of products. That way she can continue doing whatever she puts her mind to.
When it comes to the shame and embarrassment surrounding periods that I previously talked about, Cora's got your back on that, too. In the monthly box, you receive a box of tampons where you choose the absorbency, a sleek black clutch for sticking in your purse, and mini stowaways that serve as convenient covers for you to slip a tampon in your back pocket without anyone knowing. Everything is clean, classic, and chicly designed. You would think a service with this many benefits would be more than the $9.99 you pay for a 12 pack of tampons at CVS... but Cora's prices are around $12 for a full month of tampons. Oh...and did I mention free shipping? *eyes light up*
