A unique concept in Quebec and around the world
Our Quebec-based company was created by two young entrepreneurs determined to bring a positive solution to the lives of people who menstraute – and to our planet. They were dedicated to creating a new reusable menstrual protection solution, an innovation that’d finally take on “the empire of tampons and disposable pads” once and for all.
So they designed cotton underwear with a thin layer of absorbent fabric and space for removable and reusable pads, which they sell in threes with each pair of undies. The pads can be changed throughout the day – whatever your flow desires!(How it works.)
It’s this special design that gives Mme L’Ovary’s period undies their advantage! For every pair of Mme L’Ovary undies, you’d have to buy 3 menstrual undies from another brand to get the same amount of protection.
Olivia Elting and Erica Athena Lebrun are the two passionate women helming the start-up. Their N°1 mission is to create a healthier future for people and the planet. Every year, 45 billion sanitary pads are thrown into landfills and oceans around the world.
Erica and Olivia are actively involved in promoting eco-friendly alternatives and changing the overall perception of menstruation via their conferences,Red Tables, campaigns, social media presence, and more.
At the political level, they’ve met with various ministers in Ottawa to push for a new government bill that could see period protection funded in workplaces. At the same time, their campaign #sangdéchet,which they successfully presented to the City of Montreal in January 2020, is a push for cities to offer grants for reusable period protection. Some cities and boroughs are already on board.
