The concept grew out of Welch’s frustrations finding appropriate period care for her teenage son, Clem. “I felt like I was having a mom fail,“ she says. “I’m this organized, powerful female—how could I not be prepared for this?

Each one has the equivalent of four plastic bags in it, which is shocking. Learning that made me want to have waste-free products to make things easier on my kid and myself.” Looking into the companies behind the $21.6 billion and largely self-regulated feminine-hygiene industry also proved sobering. “I don’t think that pads and tampons are the solutions to issues like period poverty,” says Welch of the inequities tied to menstruation, access to sanitary products, and education on the subject. “It’s all driven by capitalism and the need for continuous growth and profit [and] ultimately those products continue the cycle as they need to be constantly repurchased.”
