DUXBURY, MA, (October 16, 2019)—TOP The Organic Project (TOP), an emerging, women-owned social impact company founded by two mothers, is on a mission to make clean, organic feminine hygiene products accessible for everyone, driven by sustainability and empowerment.
The average American woman will use more than 12,000 tampons in her lifetime, yet significant challenges like affordability, environmental waste, and unsafe toxins have been largely ignored—until now. With TOP’s biodegradable, 100% organic, hypoallergenic tampons and pads, Co-Founders, Thyme Sullivan and Denielle Finkelstein, are delivering easy-to-digest education for young female consumers, public awareness, and a viable eco-friendly alternative that is as strong as the women they aim to support nationwide.
Social impact is at the forefront of TOP’s agenda. Recent research shows that 1 in 5 girls in the U.S. have missed school due to lack of access to feminine hygiene products, which hit home for Sullivan and Finkelstein who ditched their corporate executive roles to support quality life experiences inspired by their young daughters, and the hope to positively influence the next generation of women. With every purchase, TOP donates tampons and pads to schools and organizations throughout New England with the goal to diminish “period poverty”, given food stamps, health insurance, and flexible health spending accounts do not cover the essentials.
TOP is penetrating the market through key distribution partnerships, including household retailers soon to be announced, who will be adding their product suite to shelves in designated grocery stores across the U.S. by early 2020. TOP is also collaborating with like-minded organizations, such as Beautycounter, Girlology, EmpowerHER, The Penny Pack, and Period.org, who are working diligently to provide education and eliminate the period taboo for young girls. Furthermore, TOP is participating in the Reebok 10K for women’s wellness in Boston this week, where they’ll be donating one case of pads and tampons per TOP runner to local non-profit, Dignity Matters, who will distribute those products to schools in need.
“I took a leap of faith in launching TOP after conducting market research on the feminine care space, and was deeply compelled to make a tangible difference for women, particularly the next generation like our daughters,who simply deserve more options,” said Thyme Sullivan, Co-Founder & CEO of TOP. “As mothers and industry leaders, Denielle and I feel personally responsible for arming young women with the tools they need for success, and we believe that feminine hygiene must be an integral part of that equation. We are proud to bring our vision to life with organic products that are both accessible and better—for our children, for ourselves, for the planet, and for others.”
TOP products are available online by the box and subscription. Free shipping is available on all custom subscription orders, which send TOP products discreetly to your door every 30, 60, or 90 days. For more information, visit TOPOrganicProject.com.
