By working with environmental partners that align with our own mission and
vision we can have an even bigger impact on improving our eco-system.
Our Corporate Actions
Partners and progress
We proudly partner and financially invest in the work being done by Women’s Voice for the Earth (WVE) and the Women’s Environmental Network (WEN). These organizations fight to ensure transparency around manufacturing processes and ingredient disclosure in consumer goods. Within our local community, we’re active members of Sustainable Waterloo Region, always looking for ways to lead and learn about more sustainable ways of doing business.
Every action we take,
no matter how small it
adds up to a
We are thrilled to offer North America’s first free menstrual cup recycling program, DivaRecycles! In partnership with international recycling partner, TerraCycle, DivaRecycles gives our customers the added value of being able to recycle their previously unrecyclable DivaCup Menstrual Cups and DivaWipes packaging.
Operating nationally, in over 20 countries, TerraCycle is on a mission to eliminate the idea of waste, giving products a second life. Together we are creating a more sustainable future for all.
We’re powered by Bullfrog Power, meaning that Bullfrog Power’s generators put green electricity and green natural gas onto the grid and pipeline to match the amount of conventional electricity and green natural gas used by our head office.
For close to 100 years, disposable tampons and pads have been disrupting
our eco-system with chemicals, plastics and dyes. Diva offers a better way, an
eco-friendly way to period that is better for everyone.
12 billion tampons and pads
used and disposed of annually
- Each year, a person will use up to a total of 240 tampons, pads and
liners. Using one DivaCup will offset this waste from landfills.
- More than 12 billion pads and tampons and pads are used and
disposed of annually.
- The average menstruating person uses 250 to 300 pounds of tampons,
pads and applicators over their lifetime.
- Menstrual product use over a lifetime: 12,000 and 15,000 pads, tampons and panty liners.
Several years, one DivaCup
There are more than 12 billion pads and tampons used and disposed of annually. Unlike disposable tampons and pads, the DivaCup is a reusable option that can last for several years.
We disclose every ingredient
Although the US FDA does not require manufactures to label ingredients on
menstrual care products, Diva discloses every ingredient in our products, so
consumers know exactly what they are buying.
The DivaCup naturally breaks down
Tampon applicators do not decompose, but rather break down over time into
smaller and smaller pieces. The medical grade silicone of the DivaCup
naturally breaks down over time.
One drop is all you need
Unlike other cleansers on the market, DivaWash is
highly concentrated, which means one drop is all
you need to clean your cup.
DivaWash ingredients are naturally derived, and manufactured with sustainable palm oil and palm oil derivatives.
Unlike other cleansers on the market, DivaWash is highly concentrated, which means one drop is all you need to clean your cup.
100% recyclable & vegetable-based
The DivaCup’s packaging is 100% recyclable and is printed using water and vegetable-based inks. Our packaging takes place in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, and we continuously work with our vendors to find ways of making business more sustainable for the planet.
The DivaWash’s packaging, including both the bottle and cap, is comprised of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) which is the most widely recycled plastic in the world.
Our logistics team works closely with our suppliers and performs an
annual audit to ensure they are participating in their own eco initiatives.
This includes water and hydro savings, as well as recycling, reusing
and reworking products. In addition, we choose to work with trucking
companies that are environmentally friendly as well.
Our social impact program called DivaCares.
We’re dedicated to giving back to our community and those in need. This has always been at the core of Diva’s mission and vision. Since our start we have offered our products, at no cost, to many organizations around the world, and these practices have blossomed into our corporate social responsibility initiative called DivaCares. In addition to product donation, we invest financial resources in support of causes that are helping to improve people’s period experiences.
We also encourage our staff to become involved in their communities by offering paid time off to volunteer with non-profit organizations and projects they’re passionate about.
