Overall B Impact Scoreinfo_outline


The B Impact Scores are being compared against all businesses that have completed the B Impact Assessment

Founded in 1993, GladRags has been a leader in environmentally-friendly products with a message of period positivity for over 20 years. GladRags offers high quality, washable cloth pads and menstrual cups available online or in stores nationwide.

Having products that serve people and the planet is not enough: we want to “do right” by the world in every aspect of doing business. We became a B Corp to challenge ourselves to continually improve and to ensure that we continue to maintain our core values of environmental and social justice as our business grows.

The average menstruator uses 12,000 or more disposable pads, pantyliners, and tampons during her lifetime. That's a lot of waste! Since 1993 GladRags has diverted tons of trash from landfills and beaches by providing a healthier alternative.

GladRags believe that menstruation is not inherently dirty or messy, and that people deserve to feel pride in their bodies. GladRags strives to provide effective, comfortable products and promote positive attitudes toward menstruation.
