In the production of our period underwear, we follow a business model that ensures an ethical, climate-neutral and environmentally friendly value chain.
Regional products from Europe
Regional products produced in Europe are one way we keep our carbon footprint as low as possible. At KORA MIKINO we consciously work with regional suppliers with short transport routes. The absorbent layer in our period panties is produced in Bavaria; The production of our panties takes place in the Swabian Alb and in Europe. We obtain the MicroModal from Lenzing in Austria. The fibers are produced at their fabric in a way that conserves energy and resources. In addition, the MicroModal is manufactured at Lenzing in a closed cycle. This means that there is no material waste that is discharged into the wastewater.
Saving resources is easy with Period Underwear. Of course, some resources are used for the production of our panties. The decisive difference, however, lies in the useful life of our products. While a standard bandage is only used for a few hours, our panties can be worn for several years.
"Our product does not end up in the trash after use and is allegedly out of mind afterwards; the panties are a long-lasting companion."
Julia Rittereiser, founder of KORA MIKINO
Cradle to Cradle: A circular economy without waste
Cradle to Cradle means a circular economy that doesn't generate any waste. That is exactly what we want to achieve!
But what actually happens to the materials in our panties after their useful life? Ideally, all raw materials, resources and materials are reused and hardly anything is really "thrown away". Until then, if you no longer have any use for your panty, you can send it back to us. We then dismantle them and take care of the best possible recycling.
"And at some point - this is our dream - you can simply bury the worn-out panty in the garden, where it will decompose to soil after only a few weeks."
Julia Rittereiser, founder of KORA MIKINO.
