lokal produktion

Local production

Our headquarters and heart is based in Gothenburg, Sweden and it is also there that we produce all our dispensers. We are very proud to have a swedish production where we have full transparency throughout the manufacturing process. Being close to it allows us to witness how these revolutionary machines that are changing the world slowly but surely come to life. We also have a circular approach where containers that for some reason have broken or are no longer to be used are taken back into production. This is to be able to reuse as much of the material as possible.

All our dispensers are produced in Sweden. Since 2024, we offer our customers the opportunity to choose dispensers made of recycled material. The goal is to switch completely to recycled material by the year 2025.


The UN’s sustainability goals

We are actively working towards a better society and contribute to achieving UN’s sustainability goals number 3 and 5.

UN goal number 3 – Good health and well-being.
Good health is a fundamental condition for people to reach their full potential and contribute to the development of society.

UN goal number 5 – Gender equality.
Gender equality between women and men is a prerequisite for sustainable and peaceful development. Equality is about a fair distribution of power, influence, and resources.

Herbox offers 100% organic menstrual products – What exactly does that mean?

Is it better? For who? What is required for the cotton to be called organic?

Cotton is not naturally as pristine white as we like to imagine. To make cotton free from everything you can find in a field – insects, dirt – it needs to be treated in some way. For every kilogram of cotton, 10,000 liters of water are needed. Water still needs to be used for the cotton plant to grow, but instead of overusing groundwater, organic farming often focuses on restraining resources and reusing rainwater for cultivation.

Organic cotton must be certified to be allowed to be called as such. The cotton should be produced completely without chemical pesticides and artificial fertilizers. The land where the cotton is grown must have been free of chemicals for at least three years. Choosing toxin-free cotton demonstrates that you not only care about Mother Earth and your fellow human beings, but also about yourself by avoiding exposure to toxic chemicals.

Every customer makes a difference. We donate 1% of our profit to Kvinna till Kvinna.

Why support women?

Supporting women is a smart way to contribute to sustainable development. Poverty, conflicts and natural disasters affect entire communities Women are disproportionately affected as they face discrimination and have less power and influence in society. When women receive education and empowerment in their lives, they often create a better future not only for themselves but also for their children. It yields long-term effects throughout society.
