About

 
 

It's a girl thing.

The Periodical has been created by women, for women and to give back to women because, let's face it…solidarity with your sisters is important. Only women know what it's like to have their body launch an all out assault on their insides each month. It's messy, unfun and it freakin' hurts. 

Periodical tampons are made from organic cotton. Nothing else. And will biodegrade in 5 years, not 500 like other tampons. Because why would you want to put nasty chemicals up your baby-maker?

For every pack you receive, The Periodical will also be funding maternal health and girls education projects in the developing world. (Stay tuned for more snazzy info on that!) I mean, why shouldn’t your period do a little good while it’s there! 
 
So if you period, join us for a menstrual time! 

Meet our Chief Executive Ovulator & Founder

The Periodical is the womb-child of a city dwelling, ethical and sustainable woman Bethany Noble. She has already had over 250 periods, used over 3,000 tampons and skipped P.E., yoga, a first date, work or jury duty 78.5 times. 
 
Bethany knows what it’s like to be surprised with a visit from Aunt Flow, which is why, after been caught without a tampon too many times, she realised that since you can get everything else delivered to your door (except the man of your dreams), why not a period care package subscription for the most natural subscription of all?
 
Being mindful of our bodies and the world we live in, Bethany has an uncompromising value to ensure every level of her business is ethical and sustainable. And she absolutely does not want anyone sticking bleached tampons up their hoo-haas anymore!


p.s. The Periodical is a community that we hope you will always feel a welcome part of no matter who you are, love or identify as.
