Our Yoni Promise
Welcome to Yoni, a growing collection of sustainable period products created with the belief that the time has come to open up, share our stories, and knowledge so we can take better care of our vaginas. Our platform and all of our products, our investments and aspirations aim to make this world a little more vagina friendly.
Our founder’s story: By Mariah Mansvelt Beck
It was never my intention to start a period care company, but everything changed when I had a cervical cancer scare a while ago. I started looking into what we put into, and close to our bodies every month, and found plastic, synthetics and more.
With the goal to make period care as honest and sustainable as possible, I started Yoni in 2015 – and now can’t imagine it having gone any other way. I hope that by opening up to new ideas about menstruation and vaginal wellbeing we can make periods a little kinder for everyone who has them, and the planet we live on.
What we do to make a change
Together against period poverty
Period products aren’t a luxury item, they are a necessity. Everyone should have access to products, education and facilities necessary for a safe period. In 2024 we will start donating 2% of our sales revenue towards the fight against period poverty. We currently already work together with the Dutch Poverty Foundation, Armoedefonds, providing products when we can. In 2024 we want to make this more a structural part of our business. If you want to go the extra mile you can also consider donating directly through our Pay for a Period programme.
End the stigma, end the shame
The taboo around menstruation has a huge impact on people who menstruate. Not only does it affect mental health, shame and stigma can prevent people from being able to go to school or work. Through our collaborations with schools and workplaces we hope to contribute to creating more safe menstrual environments. Interested in having your workplace or school provide Yoni? Contact email@example.com. Talking about everything taboo within the world of vulva’s and vagina’s is something we’ve been doing since the start. We are committed to using our platform to share stories and knowledge. Curious? Check out our Instagram or our Game Changer campaign.
Business as a force for good
There are many different ways to run a business. We intend to use our business as a force for good. Not only do we want our products to have a positive impact on the lives of our users, we also want to ensure that everyone in our supply chain is treated fairly and we work as sustainable as possible. Our products are certified organic cotton according to the Global Organic Textile Standards, certified by the SOIL Asscociation. In 2018 Yoni became a B Corp. B Corp challenges us to look beyond our product and to make sustainable and healthy decisions in everything ranging from the type of coffee we drink at the office to how we treat each other while doing business.
