A Nanaimo entrepreneur is looking to make womanhood easier for those living in Africa with a new sanitary product.
News Bulletin sales representative Erin Burden is using FundRazr to collect money she’ll use to distribute her new menstrual cup product – Lunacup – to women and girls living in Zimbabwe.
The new product could also be stocked in Nanaimo stores if Burden gets Health Canada approval.
Burden, who will travel to Africa this January, hopes to make things easier for girls and women who don’t have access to proper sanitary products.
Fundraised dollars will cover the cost of the cups, which will be supplied to the Sandra Jones Centre in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.
The reusable Lunacup, an alternative to pads and tampons, collects menstrual flow and can last at least five years.
