We at Geenees are committed to driving change in a sustainable and meaningful way. We are excited to introduce our two new partners, Joni and Applecheeks, and all the impactful work they do.

Joni - Organic and Biodegradable Pads for Everyone

Founded with the mission of providing people across Canada with accessible and innovative period care options, Joni has donated over 40,000 pads in Canada to-date since March 2020. Truly revolutionizing the industry, Joni sells the only biodegradable bamboo pad in Canada and is making strides in fighting period poverty in a sustainable manner. The company also offers free-shipping across Canada to ensure that accessibility is kept top of mind. Additionally, not only are their pad wrappers plastic-free, but their pads require 10X less water to produce, a product that is truly sustainable in and of itself.

Applecheeks - Cloth Diapers.

Founded in 2008, AppleCheeks has been committed to providing parents across Canada with cloth diapers.

Over the years, the company has garnered large amounts of success, receiving awards such as W100 Top 100 Female Entrepreneurs of 2012 and competing on Dragons Den. Their customer-focused business is revolutionary in both having an impact and providing options.

What does this mean for non-profit organizations?

As a non-profit organization adding Joni and Applecheeks into your wishlist is the first step to a sustainable future. Families and individuals will be able to use essential products such as diapers for a longer period of time, rather than having to purchase them frequently.

What does this mean for Donors?

Donors will now have the option to give in a way that has long-lasting benefits to the individual or family in need. Additionally, Donors can give knowing their gift is not only meaningful but is also ethical and sustainable, holding benefits for the environment as well.
