Julia Rittereiser worked for Google for many years, where she learned a lot and took the opportunity to work abroad. At some point, that wasn’t enough for her. The idea of ??selling advertisements while the polar ice caps were melting, the mountains of garbage were growing and most menstruating people on this earth did not have adequate hygiene products, became unbearable. So in October 2018, Julia founded KORA MIKINO SUSTAINABLE FEMCARE to counter the mountains of garbage caused by disposable hygiene products such as sanitary napkins and tampons. In addition, the simplest product for monthly hygiene on the market was simply missing: a reusable pant with a suction function. Fairly produced, without animal suffering, at a reasonable price with exceptionally good materials. KORA MIKINO’s mission is to sustainably remove the taboo from menstruation – through fair production and a realistic, open discourse. Every panty sold prevents around five kilos of residual waste and ten kilos of CO2 per year. In the first four weeks after the launch, KORA MIKINO sold over 2,500 panties, exceeding its own expectations. Even if the quick start of the company is a challenge, this success means that the company has so far saved its customers around 10,000 kilos of residual waste and 25,000 kilos of CO2.
