Hi there, my name is Jessie, and I'm the founder of Monthlies! Ireland's newest period subscription box. Here's a bit about how Monthlies came to be...
If, like me, you use multiple products throughout your period you are probably more than familiar with the trek to the shop to purchase multiple boxes of different products, all for one period. If you're like me, you might also forget you have certain products already; meaning unnecessary cost, or leave them in a bag that you won't use again for 6 months, meaning unnecessary waste.
That’s why it was so important to me, when creating Monthlies, that we have a feature that gives people the ability to take control of their period care. Only ordering what you’ll need, and having it delivered to suit your cycle every 4 or 9 weeks - no waste, no unnecessary costs.
I’ve put a lot of effort into ensuring that the products we offer at Monthlies are both better for people and for the planet. Monthlies’ period products are made from 100% Organic Cotton meaning they’ll break down in landfill or compost much quicker than conventional products. Our period products are eco-friendly. They’re also wrapped in materials designed to reduce waste. Our pads come in a bio-plastic wrapping, and our ‘twist and release’ applicator tampons are made from recyclable cardboard and wrapped in paper. Monthlies period products contain no harmful bleaches or chemicals.
I originally had the idea for Monthlies back in 2020 (long time coming, I know), when making a TikTok video featuring a ‘period emergency kit’. I thought, "wouldn't it be great if every month you could just pick the products you need, and only the products you need?" A lot of researching, emailing, and sample testing later, and here it is!
I'm so excited to finally have Monthlies up and running, I’ve loved seeing peoples’ response to the ‘Own Your Flow’ feature.
