Let’s talk about periods. In conversation with The Organic Project (TOP) Co-Founders, Thyme Sullivan and Denielle Finkelstein, the ladies talk candidly and laugh often about an experience all women share but few talk openly about. Learn about what’s in your tampons and why organic is so important; how you can skip the cardboard and cup while still “saving the planet”; and, when and how you can start the period talk with your daughter.
Co-Founder of The Organic Project (TOP), Thyme brings 27 years of Executive consumer product experience to her period product company. After identifying a gap in the market, Thyme and partner, Denielle, are inspired to design better and more eco-friendly period products for their daughters.
Co-Founder of The Organic Project (TOP), Denielle brings a career in marketing and retail along with a personal passion for all things organic to build a brand that is healthy and safe for our girls and the environment.
