Everyone deserves to live in a healthy and safe environment. That environment includes where you live, work, play, and pray. We reject and actively push back against racist rhetoric, actions, policies and institutional oppression that leads to state-sanctioned brutality, gun violence, and harm that again and again assaults communities, particularly communities of color. We are committed to working for justice and equity, and are in solidarity with social, racial, and environmental justice organizations to build community, understanding and honest dialogue to address the root causes of violence, harm and hate.

Feminine Care Products: Detox the Box


Cassidy Randall
Director of Outreach
& Engagement

We are so excited to release the name and tagline for our new feminine care products campaign (kind of ridiculously excited, actually – we’ve been giggling like teenagers with a secret for a few weeks).

Ready? Drumroll please….

Detox the Box
Toxic chemicals don’t belong in feminine products. Period.


OMG, how are you women so clever, you might be asking? Au contraire. It’s our members who are clever.

Throughout the fall, we asked WVE members to fill out a survey on the best way to message this campaign, which is, as we all know, a somewhat touchy subject. After all, there are as many different names for the vagina as there are women, so we don’t even have a common language for discussing this. Then add in the both horrifying and uncomfortable element of toxic chemicals in the products we’re actually using on our vaginas?! Whoa.

But we knew our members were up to the challenge. Almost 1,000 women filled out the survey. In fact, the name of our November report on toxic chemicals in feminine care products came from a member’s response to the survey: Chem Fatale. Brilliant.

The chosen title and tagline were the best performing in focus groups and the survey. Smart women have spoken. We can’t WAIT to rocket Detox the Box into the national spotlight.

And now for your feminine care sublime moment of the day. Have a seat, if you’re not sitting yet, because it gets even better.
