Designed for Sustainability


Our goal is to change the status quo on period protection. We want to educate our customers on how reusable period protection is better for our bodies, the planet and our wallets. 

Rosaseven Sustainability

All of our products are made ethically, locally and sustainably.

Impact drives all of our decisions; our fabric choices are considered with the health for our bodies and the well-being of the planet front of mind.

WHY?

1. It takes over 500 years for a disposable pad to decompose. 
We use a pad for 2 to 8 hours only. 
500 years = 7 generations of women. 
2. Disposable conventional period products contain up to 90% plastic
One pad can contain up to 4 plastic bags’ worth of plastic.
3. Pads are one of the biggest forms of ocean pollution and the fifth most common item found on beaches. Gross for us, and fatal to marine life.
4. Close to 20 billion sanitary napkins, tampons & applicators are discarded
each year (in the United States alone). 
5. The process of polyethylene & ethylene used to create tampon applicators and the plastic back-strip of sanitary napkins requires high amounts of fossil fuel generated energy.

DID YOU KNOW?

Disposable pads & tampons are processed using a lot of different chemicals? These include bleached chemicals, pesticide residues & unknown fragrance chemicals that can be harmful. And then we insert them directly into our body or on an extremely sensitive area? Exposure concerns include cancer, reproductive harm, endocrine disruption and allergic rashes. 

HOW ROSASEVEN IS SUSTAINABLE?

1. Rosaseven products are made with sustainable fabrics only.
2. We choose organic fabrics & fibres that are good for our body and the environment. This decision is based on how they are processed,
where they are manufactured and how well they can decompose.
3. All our products are made by a local manufacture in Vancouver, BC with impeccable working conditions, and we can tell you precisely
"who made your clothes". 
4. We produce in small batches to avoid over stocking and waste produce & minimising transportation costs by producing locally.
5. Our products are well made and last for years.
6. We recycle scraps we can't use. When making the products there is still some wastage we can't avoid, which we make sure to recycle with a local Vancouver based textiles recycling facility. 
7. We source all of our trims, care labels & packaging from sustainable sources in North America to reduce our carbon impact of transportations
We choose TENCEL™ Lyocell as our main fibre in all our products (it represents a minimum 70% of each product).
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres are produced from wood pulp from sustainably managed sources, a renewable resource. They have earned USDA BioPreferred® designation.
Derived from nature, all standard  TENCEL™ Lyocell fibre types are biodegradable & compostable under industrial, home, soil and marine conditions, thus they can fully revert back to nature.
 

OUR FACTORIES & SUPPLIERS

The main TENCEL Lyocell & organic cotton fabrics we use from our Okeo-Tex certified fabric mills are based in Shanghai, and the Recycled polyester we use for our bathing suit is in Taiwan. The Canadian company that we work with have personally visited all of the facilities our fabrics come from to check the labour market requirements are being met and following all strict labour codes, along with the green initiatives in place. The factory uses solar panels through the parking lots & facility roofing to provide as much solar energy to the facility as they can, whilst also saving the steam and as much waste water to be reused as possible.

They bring all of the fabrics we use in by sea freight to reduce carbon impact from air freight. 

Our manufacturer is in Vancouver, Canada where we have personally visited the facility and they are following labour market requirements of Canadian government. 

 The next generations will look back and say,
"They had disposable pads? That's insane!"
