Bleed For You is an Australia and NZ based, subscription, delivery-to-your-door, organic tampon company, committed to giving 50% of profits away to support women.
Sign up on our products page, choose your mix (super, regular, mini) AND go through the checkout. We deliver to your door, so you won’t ever have to send your partner to the shop in the rain at 2 am again.
You can purchase 3 months, 6 months, or a whole year at once – and if you subscribe you get a discount. On subscription, we check you haven’t changed address a week before you are due to run out and then send them again without you having to remember to do it. Subscribers can cancel at any time!
Delivery within Australia is free. We only ship to NZ at the moment and this costs $7.95 for the three month subscription and $10 for six months and one year.

We hope to grow our investment into pads soon. Sign up and we will keep you posted!
Same. As we expand we will look at offering these as well.
Are your tampons organic?
Yes. Certified by GOTS – a rigorous European organisation.Look for our Organic Certification logo on every pack.
ICEA (Ethical and Environmental Certification Institute) plays an active and important role in preservation, supporting biodiversity, respecting common welfare, human rights, cooperation, participation, and sharing of choices as a democratic model. You can see this Ethical and Environmental Certification on the side of every pack.
NO tampons are made in Australia or NZ so we had to go to Europe. We considered other countries that were closer but the European Union has very stringent certifications on manufacturing. This was the only way we felt we could guarantee our customers that our product is really organic and chemical free.
We wanted to support a local and an international charity. So, we have formally partnered with Share the Dignity, (in support of homeless women in NZ and Australia) and are currently liasing with Marie Stopes International (who provide reproductive health services to women in the third world). Kimberley Hikaka is our Charity Advisor and has a range of experience. She is currently working in Syria for Medecin Sans Frontiers. Long term, we will be consulting with our subscribers over initiatives they’d like to see supported.
It all started with this simple question. Should big business corporates be raking in the profits from women bleeding once a month? Or is there a way to see these profits returned to women? We couldn’t see anything that did this – so we took it into our own hands to create this option.
Across the average woman’s lifetime, she will purchase around 14,000 tampons. The entire female hygiene market worldwide is set to reach $42.7 billion by 2022. All over the world women face inequality. They have less access to money, education, opportunity, and resources. We think that a business profit sharing model (like us) is a small but important step on the long road to an equal world.
If you’re going to bleed once a month – you may as well 'bleed for you’.
Vanessa Alexander, Cherry Connew, and James Sulzberger. Although we’ve had lots of support from others to get us this far. We are all parents who met at the school gate and shared a desire build on the conscious capitalism model to support women in need.

Cherry is an environmental engineer turned digital marketing consultant, who came up with the idea of running this whole thing as an online subscription business.
