Single-use menstrual products are a major source of waste that has a negative impact on the environment. This is mainly due to the plastic that is found in most of these products, which takes several years to break down. For example 771,248,400 products end up in landfills each year in Canada.

Canadian legislation does not regulate the display of ingredients used in menstrual products. This means that menstrual products from popular brands include, among others, an average of 20 to 30 chemicals, are among the 10 most harmful chemicals in the world and are not required to display the list of ingredients.

Why They Chose Iris+Arlo

As a collective, we need to continue to learn about what we are putting in and on our bodies, as well as how our consumer habits impact the environment. This movement is so important because it lifts the taboo surrounding the topic of feminine health and makes accessibility to safe, high quality feminine products closer than ever.
Alexandra Vincelli, Host, Anxious Millenial Podcast
I am part of the Iris + Arlo movement because everything about this project makes sense. It is based on a solid trend analysis. It puts design at the center. It reaches a huge population. It adds environment and well-being. It starts from a specific individual need but is part of a collective strategy. And it is simply necessary, because improving women's health is improving the health of society.
Simon Lafrance, CEO And Principal, Strategeum
It was only natural for BROUILLARD, whose team is 100% female, to join the Iris+Arlo movement. I love the idea of offering my team access to healthy menstrual products, on the one hand, but also, to point products. Sharing and smuggling tampons during this "time of the month" is already natural for us, let's make it even easier, more designer and assumed in 2023!
Florence Brouillard, General Manager, BROUILLARD
For me, offering feminine hygiene products while running a business of 26 people, 24 of whom are women, is a no brainer. I was already doing it before Iris + Arlo came along, so it was an easy yes to jump on board not only to continue that momentum, but to be able to benefit from this easy, effective and very current formula.
Léonie Pelletier, Founder And Owner, OUI l'agence
Iris + Arlo embodies values that appeal to me: equity, social and environmental responsibility. I want to join the movement and help "change the rules" to make the world a better place.
