C - SUPER l'Alternative, serviettes périodiques 100% BIO accessibles à toutes!

I grew up in a family which has always handcraft everything : houses, gardens, sewing, craftworks… Shelter, food, clothing, and pleasure! I have always sewn and collected, recycled all materials, dragged into flea markets and yard sales.

With "Les Poupées De Zou" for the last fifteen years, which became "Les Trucs De Zou"! (https://www.facebook.com/lestrucsdezou/photos/ in auto-company since 2016), I have created a lot of rag dolls, princess dresses, cosplay, clothes etc.... by recycling all these materials and fabrics intended to be thrown away.

For example: Donkey Skin

I try to work to develop my life as close as possible to nature (not simple every day), whether it is the environment in which I live, my thoughts or my actions. I believe that the evolution of each individual on his or her own scale will necessarily lead gradually to the evolution of humanity.

I am in a process of ethical life, ecological, recycling, locavore and organic when I can, concretely since the birth of my daughter 15 years ago. Since she became a "Big girl", I have obviously advised her on the different means of classic periodic protection, while having a small voice whispering in my ear that there is better to do...

(HEY GUYS, IT'S ENOUGH)

Something more sensible than buying menstrual pads- so polluting waste - plastic-based - so oil derivatives... Organic pads are fine but you have to buy them every month, they are disposable...

Something more sensible than risking the syndrome of toxic shock with tampons, even bios - risk also present with menstrual cups- or the diffusion of glyphosates, endocrine disrupters contained in the cotton of tampons, in the intimacy of our adorable and adored vagina, when the fibers are not synthetic... It's a reality and the list is compelling!

(MOVE YOUR... :) )

Inspired by others, I first created my own pads designs just for me. I have been making them for some time now by recycling cotton fabrics, sometimes with new ones, but especially bamboo sponge - very fine and highly absorbent - and waterproof coated cotton bought new, all attached to the snap button under my panties.

Five models in total for the moment : Night, Abundant, Regular, Light and panty liner.

Organic for all, that's what should be the norm, right? I dream of having good soft organic cotton to make them, as well as organic sponge, organic bias, organic yarn!

For the waterproof fabric, also made of organic cotton coated with a thin layer of polyurethane, which unfortunately cannot be avoided. But the one I plan to use is OekoTex certified (International Control and Certification System for Harmful Substances in Textiles) and is not in direct contact with skin or blood.

I would also like to create a brand and register it, obviously have labels made, as well as a website to benefit as many people as possible. In a word, I dream of creating a beautiful, healthy, solid product for you girls because 100% ORGANIC for everyone is what life is all about!

I'm very motivated to start making these pads!

I don't need a lot of money to start with, but I just can't do it. This project in particular seems to be aimed at girls and women who are concerned about the consequences of chemicals on their health, or that of their daughters, but it also concerns fathers, sons, brothers, friends, guys!

We are all concerned because it affects our privacy and the origin of life. And this object that looks so harmless: the periodic pad, simple, natural, ecological, washable, economical, zero waste! All girls and women deserve that!

I would like to make them 100% organic, in packs, with their small pockets to carry them cleanly in their bag, very strong to ensure that they last as long as possible. And especially at a very affordable price, it must not be a luxury product.

This is very important to me.

 

Waar dient de collecte voor

First of all, the first and most important tool:

My little Singer sewing machine from the 70s is getting tired, and I would really need an efficient overlock machine that will guarantee me solid seams that will guarantee the life of a pad. It is a necessary machine for an impeccable finish with a much better level of finish and solidity. It will make this a little repetitive work much easier, faster and more resistant. Work that I will do with great pleasure, because I am very methodical.

The sewing machine of my dreams:

MATERIAL FOR 300 SERVICES to start with

SURJETER 4-wire Juki MO-654DE 449,00€

Organic cotton sailcloth - On average 20 serv. for 0.70m long x 1.40 wide for 300 serv. Approximately 10.50mL 10m/121.50€

FABRIC BIO COTTON SPONSORS - 60 overnight stay X 3 sponge thicknesses 22cm x8cm = about 3m 60 abund X 3 sponge thicknesses 21cm x8cm = about 3m 60 regular X 2 sponge thicknesses 19,5cm x8 cm = about 2m 60 light X 1 sponge thickness 17cm x 6,5cm = about 1m 60 pro-slip = 0 10m/187,50€

Organic PUL FABRIC (imper) - On average 20 serv. for 0.70m long x 1.40 wide for 300 serv. Approximately 10.50mL 10m/177.80€

INPI BRAND DEPOSIT 210.00€

CREATION OF A WWW SITE 200.00€

TOTAL: 1986,80 € +8 % transactions =2145€

I have calculated my budget as close as I can to 300 pads, but if the amount I need is exceeded, I will take the opportunity to buy more fabric, equipment and create new models. I will also be able to broaden the range of products offered always with the same objective, on my future site.

the value of crowdfunding for me?

Huge! Huge! Solidarity, mutual support , sharing, equity, awareness, empathy, that's crowdfunding! All this and friendship, love, I already receive some in my life with my more or less close entourage (geographically) and I really feel like I don't give enough... I want and need to do something that makes real sense, with conviction to help in turn. And if this project succeeds and traces its little road to contribute to KISSKISS, it would be great. Interdependence is what is beautiful.

The funds raised on the platform will be donated to Marie poquet, a self-entrepreneur and bearer of the project.
