About

Chemicals don't belong in our bodies, our landfills, or our waters

Holy Sponge! began when Janeen was moving from the east coast to the west and thinking heavily on her relationship with Self & nature- which included how she disposed of waste. Namely, tampons…toxic commercial tampons going into landfills, full of chemicals and blood (two things that don’t belong together). She happened to pick up the book Cunt by Inga Muscio, read abut sea sponges for menstruation, and could not wait to get her hands on some- being both equally intrigued and terrified at the thought of using them as blood collectors. Upon making it to the Bay Area, she picked up a set of sponges and fell in love with using them- to the extent that she was telling everyone she knew about sponges, and if they were slightly interested, she made them a version of what is now our Moon Ritual Kit.

We offer these eco-friendly alternative menstrual products to support people who bleed on their journeys of healing their bodies. Most of us have spent a good part of our lives absorbing shameful messages about our blood & bodies as well as absorbing the toxic chemicals contained in commercial fem-care products. It’s about time that more choices are available- choices that are kind to the body and kind to the earth. As menstrual activists, we see our work as both 1. Providing alternative products and 2. Providing information & resources to women and people who bleed. If you would like to book us to teach a workshop in your space, please get in touch with us!
