Oi believes that women deserve the choice to remove plastics and impurities from their tampons and pads, and therefore their bodies. A woman will use about 11,000 tampons or pads in her lifetime, that’s enough tampons to scale the Sky tower – twice. Yet most are shocked to learn that their tampons and pads are synthetic products full of plastic, perfumes, bleaches, or cotton sprayed with pesticides, herbicides and dioxins. The lasting impact of 500 years on the environment is also concerning.

Oi’s campaign “#Changeyourworldthismonth” will encourage women to switch to Oi’s pure certified organic cotton tampons and pads, which are also biodegradable. The form-fitting zero waste Oi CupTM also eliminates plastic from the environment. Oi celebrates three years in the market in October 2018, and its impressive growth reflects the demand for products that women trust, and the desire to remove plastic from our world.

Oi is designated a “one to watch” in the 2018 Deloitte Top 50.
