The bottom line
With the power of diversity and collaboration, VOXAPOD is part of a wave of purpose-filled ventures proving that profit and philanthropy can be aligned to create sustainable impact. We take pride in our work and embody the social and environmental change that we crave in the world around us.
If you didn’t know, “voxa” is the Latin word for “voice.” With a bottom line that includes people and planet, we’re not only giving a voice to the needs of women and our environment, but we’re opting to do something about it.
A (loud) collective purpose
Menstrual health is not just a women’s issue; it’s a humanitarian issue. Because the problem isn’t that women bleed. The problem is the way we’re addressing it (or not addressing it).
Let’s talk stats for a few.
Globally, we don’t tax Viagra, razors, Rogaine, or even potato chips. Yet, because tampons and pads are considered a “luxury item," they receive a 5–20% tax, making them largely unaffordable for women in developing countries. In those same countries, 57% of girls don’t attend secondary school, mostly because they lack access to menstrual health products—and those that do attend will often drop out for the same reason.
Every purchase of VOXAPOD™ helps create equity and keep girls in school by meeting their menstrual health needs.
Inspired, authentic and bloody brave
We are a benefit corporation made up of real humans aspiring for a better future, and putting in the hard work to make positive social change. Just like you.
