Hey guys! August has been such an amazing, overwhelming and intense month for TABOO. We have seen many milestones reached, most of which revolved around the launch of our line of organic pads and tampons!
On the 7th of August, a big container of TABOO’s pads and tampons arrived at our office, having just made its way from Barcelona! It was extremely surreal to finally have the product in our hands that we had been working towards for the last 3 years.
Considering the crazy lead up, the launch party needed to be nothing short of spectacular! The weeks leading up to the 22nd of August were spent organising the entertainment, food, drinks, venue, running sheet and of course the promotion of the event. The aim of the night was to celebrate the journey with our community and thank everyone who has been a part of our journey.
Alongside this, the website, postage and packaging processes needed to be put in place ready for orders to be made following the 22nd. Since then, we have been madly packing and sending off pads and tampons to all corners of the country.
Surrounding the launch, we have been so lucky to have some incredible media coverage. On the morning of our launch day, we received a call from ABC asking for us to be in a live segment on national TV! Following this, we headed back to the office to be interviewed for another news article, and then made our way to MOD to start party set up! If you’d like to know more about how the night unfolded, please visit the blog post in our newsletter.
Over the past month, we have also had the privilege of speaking at various school and community events.We were so honoured to have been invited to speak alongside some incredible women at an event hosted by the Unley Council, celebrating the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in SA.

Until next month boos! We can’t wait to see what September holds!
