We not only want to ensure that our products are safe and sustainably produced, we also want to ensure that the partners we work with have values that align with ours. Our pads are manufactured in the People’s Republic of China. The factories are certified to ISO 9001, OEKO TEX, FSC, FDA, TUV, and SGS. We ensure our suppliers are compliant with modern standards of health and safety, equal opportunities, and diversity. We also ensure that our suppliers are aware of and comply with environmental standards. Our CEO visited the facility in 2019 to view conditions as we are working on our BCorp Certification.

joni's ultra-thin pads with wings contain ethically sourced FSC certified natural bamboo and cornstarch (a plant-based backing), and a food-grade non-toxic adhesive. joni pads are free of pesticides, dyes, toxins, latex, formaldehyde, and fragrances as required for OEKO TEX standard 100 certification.
We use ethically sourced FSC certified bamboo in our pads because it’s one of the most sustainable plants on earth. Bamboo grows in the wild without requiring any interference and is naturally anti-bacterial and so doesn’t require any pesticides. Additionally, bamboo consumes 10x less water to grow, has zero bi-product waste, and is 3x softer than organic cotton. We convert bamboo into fibres using the “OEKO-TEX standard 100” certified closed-loop process to have the least possible impact on the environment and to ensure that joni pads are completely free of any harmful chemicals.
Yes, we are very particular about how materials are sourced and who we work with. Our bamboo pulps are FSC certified to ensure the sustainability of the plant. Components within the product has been tested for harmful substances.
Our pads are up to 92% biodegradable in 6 months under standard compost conditions. Our pads have SAP and food-grade non-toxic adhesives in them, which takes longer to biodegrade in standard conditions. We are actively working towards making period products 100% biodegradable as part of our #progressnotperfection value.
We are actively collaborating with local NGOs, Schools, and Shelter homes to donate our products to local communities across Canada. If you know of an organization that we should partner with, please give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org
