Here We Flo, a black-owned and female-led menstrual health company, is proud to announce that it has achieved recognition as a Certified B Corporation™ (“B Corp”), making it one of the few menstrual health companies in the world to earn this esteemed designation.
B Corporation certification is awarded to companies that meet rigorous social and environmental performance standards and are committed to using business as a force for good. Here We Flo scored an impressive 109.9 points, surpassing the required minimum of 80 points. By meeting these standards, Here We Flo has demonstrated its unwavering commitment to making a positive impact on the world and being a leader in the menstrual health industry.
Founded six years ago by Susan C. Allen and Tara Chandra, Here We Flo is on a mission to challenge shame and disrupt the period, bladder, and sexual wellness markets with its organic and vegan products, including tampons, pads, bladder pads, and condoms.
“Becoming a B Corp™ is a dream come true for us. Our vision for Here We Flo was to create a business that did good from cradle to the customer, and B Corp™ is proof that we’re succeeding in that vision,” said Susan C. Allen. “Achieving our B Corp status has only intensified our motivation to continue being sustainably funny, feminist, and fierce, and creating a world where our messiest bodily moments inspire laughter rather than feelings of shame and stigma.”
Here We Flo’s B Corp certification is the result of a rigorous assessment process that measures the company’s impact on its employees, customers, community, and the environment. Globally, Here We Flo has saved 17 million tampons/pads and over 2 million bladder pads from landfills.
Here We Flo is also committed to using sustainable materials, such as bamboo and sugarcane, to make their products, increasing awareness of plant-based manufacturing. They offset CO2 emissions and work towards integrating regenerative practices into their supply chain, sourcing regenerative rubber and producing with solar power.
In addition to meeting these high standards, Here We Flo has also implemented several initiatives to promote sustainability and social responsibility. These include using eco-friendly materials in its products, partnering with nonprofit organizations to provide menstrual products to those in need, and advocating for menstrual equity. The company donates 5% of its profits to charities that help people and the planet and has already donated over 58,000-period pads to those in need through its incredible charity partners like Bloody Good Period.
