Why I Support These Sustainable Period Products + A Giveaway!
Hi, everyone! My name is Gretchen Gatan and I’m a writer and editor based in Metro Manila, Philippines. If you’re new here, welcome to Greta’s Junkyard—a dumpsite of beauty and lifestyle articles since 2013. Once in a while, I host giveaways for my readers and followers and I’m excited to announce this giveaway in partnership with Mirko! We’ll be giving away sustainable period products to three lucky women.
But first—who is Mirko?
Mirko is a local brand that seeks to be an innovative leader in women’s essentials. They target basic needs with thoughtful solutions to improve our overall quality of life—without all the fuss. Moreover, they ensure that their solutions remain beneficial even for the generations of ladies to come.
Mirko hopes to revolutionize every woman’s period. They provide essential products that are high-function, affordable, easy to maintain, lasting, and sustainable. These include period underwear, menstrual cups, and organic sanitary pads.
Sustainable Period Products
More than the simple designs and affordable price points, what I love about Mirko is that they created sustainable period products like their menstrual cup and their organic and eco-friendly sanitary pads. I’ve been meaning to shift to a menstrual cup to lessen my waste every month, but I have yet to get used to it. So it’s nice to have an option in their sanitary pads, which are breathable, hypoallergenic, and safe for the environment!
Meanwhile, their period undies have been so useful as well. I usually wear them overnight or on my heavy days for extra protection. They’re super comfortable, too. These are manufactured locally and constructed with two layers of fabric with a capacity to absorb up to 10 ml of liquid! The sleek designs have a full back coverage to prevent leaking. Plus, the smooth polyester spandex material is resistant to stains, thus ensuring stress-free washing and cleaning.
Besides wearing it as extra protection on heavy days, you can wear it alone on light days! I’ve tried it and am happy to report that there were no leaks or stains.
To know more about Mirko, visit their website at mirkoessentials.com or follow them on Instagram at @mirko_ph and Facebook at facebook.com/MirkoPH.
To spread the love, Mirko and I partnered to give away a pair of period underwear or briefs and a menstrual cup to three (3) lucky readers or followers. All you have to do is enter the giveaway below. Be sure to read and follow all the mechanics because failure to do so can result in the disqualification of your entry or entries. Some mechanics can be done once a day until the giveaway ends to increase your chances of winning. The contest is open to Philippine residents only and will run from November 20 to 29, 2022. Then, I’ll be drawing the winners randomly via Rafflecopter and announcing them via Facebook, Instagram stories, and this blog post on November 30, 2022.
I hope you can share the news with your fellow female family members and friends. Good luck to everyone joining! Lastly, please follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube at @gretchengatan to stay updated with all things beauty, home, and lifestyle.
