Founded in 2002, Diva’s founder mother-daughter teams Francine Chambers and Carinne Chambers-Saini are passionate about their dream of creating a sustainable menstrual cup that is a disposable, healthy and effective alternative. Pouring has caused confusion in the menstrual care industry. Their hero product, DivaCup, is an easy-to-use, cost-effective, eco-friendly alternative to disposable tampons and pads, providing up to 12 hours of leak-proof protection. Diva is also keen on social impact programs. Its mission is to establish globally meaningful partnerships to address accessibility, menstrual equity and educational issues. In the past year alone, Diva’s Impact program has provided over $ 700,000 in products and financial support worldwide. Diva believes that menstruation is not a life-restricting thing, it should be a fact of life, so the company is committed to breaking the taboos that surround menstruation around the world.
