About Us

WHO WE ARE 

Cariona was originally built by my boyfriend and I as a passion project to better the environment while also helping spread the gospel. We are based in Connecticut, USA and ship our products from here. Our staple product, Cariona reusable menstrual pad, was created because I had been experiencing uncomfortable skin rashes and terrible cramps for many years, and thought there must be a better way to go through my period. Thankfully, my boyfriend supported my journey into researching and finding a better alternative for a healthier and more eco-friendly menstrual cycle. In sharing, creating and providing environmentally sustainable goods, we believe that we are doing our part to make the world a better place for future generations.

We started from nothing and prayed for wisdom and guidance to start our small business, while pledging to give 10% of our gross sales back to God through carefully vetted missions and churches. We are not imposing our faith on anyone nor are we against on any other organizations or ideologies. Menstruation is something that a lot of people are ashamed of and we are determined to use Cariona as a support system and a bridge to bring individuals with different opinions together while saving our planet.

We are a Christian couple who 
do not impose our beliefs on anyone. We never have and never will force anyone to believe in God nor do we discriminate against anyone who has a different belief than ours. Our donations and tithes are very carefully vetted and we will never donate to organizations that force people to convert or force people to accept Jesus in their lives. Regardless of your age, sex, religion or beliefs, we accept you and are willing to provide service, products, and support in any way we can. 

OUR MISSION

At Cariona, we believe there is a better way to live. A more sustainable, less invasive way where every choice made is one with the Earth in mind. We're obsessively passionate about it and our mission is to be everyone’s go-to for thrifty, innovative and eco-friendly products. We're excited to simplify the eco-friendly movement for everyone through our community engagement and products. We care about you and our planet.

We do our best to accommodate requests from people of all walks of life. Whatever you identify as, let us know and, together, we’ll handpick styles that fit best with your own preference. Menstruation is very personal, so you deserve something to love.

THE PRINCIPLES OF PLENTY (PROV. 3:9–10)

Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the first fruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine

While we do not wish to impose any beliefs on our customers, my boyfriend and I believe in the "Great Commission” to preach the gospel to all nations (Matthew 28:19-20). We established our store by faith so we give back to God by committing 10% of our monthly gross sales to support churches and missionaries worldwide.

To God be the Glory!
