Your Menstruation, Her Education

We want to create a movement, where women can empower each other and inspire people around them to do better. Choosing Yoppie doesn’t just mean loving and honouring yourself, but that you care for the environment and our planet too.

Meet the Founders


Yoppie started with the goal of making everyone’s period that much happier, hence our slogan ‘Your Happy Period’!

We thought the market was missing a simple and natural option for sanitary products. A product that not only discloses all the ingredients but draws attention to some of the major problems that still exist in the world. A world where over 100 million girls lack appropriate sanitary products. Menstruation is often a reason for why these girls miss out on school or even drop out. This, in turn, means that their chance of developing as an individual as well as a collective is hindered.

In addition, we were tired of having to frantically search through bags in the hopes of finding a single tampon or run stressed and hormonal to the nearest store each month. We were also tired of having to buy boxes of differently sized tampons just to obtain the size suitable for that month’s cycle or that day’s flow. Making our period unnecessarily pricey.

We also marvelled over how few people there are that actually question the industry for sanitary products. Yet, a woman on average wears a tampon for more than 100,000 hours over her lifetime, where ingredients such as chemicals and synthetics are extremely common in ordinary sanitary products. These were harmful ingredients that we expose our bodies to every month. Substances that we know are bad for both your body and the environment.

We also want to give our sisters less fortunate that us, who suffer in multiple ways due to their menstruation, a better chance. We have chosen a business model where every customer matters and who can, in turn, help a girl in need. We believe it’s important and necessary to implement philanthropy not only in our personal lives, but also in our profession.

It’s time for a change!

Our Story

Spring, 2015

It all started while strolling through Hyde Park, pondering over the fact that we never had tampons at home when we need them. ‘Can you imagine never having to run around all stressed-out and hormonal to the nearest store ever again? Or never having to buy several boxes of different sizes that makes the period unnecessarily pricey?’ That is how it all started…

Autumn, 2015

We started sourcing the market for the best organic cotton. When we started we realised that we didn’t know what was actually in regular tampons and when we found out… let’s just say that we are proud of our products being 100% organic.

Now, imagine getting your period with no sanitary protection at all. What would you do?

There are so many girls in that situation every day all over the world, making them miss out on important opportunities in life. We don’t want girls to be held back by something as natural as menstruation. So we decided that we had to do something.

28 September 2016

Is the day we launched Your Happy Period and the rest is history… No, just kidding, we are only at the beginning of our journey. An exciting and important journey that we hope to share with you.
