As a social enterprise, Oi has a greater focus than caring for women’s health and the well-being of our planet. Educating the world that we all have a choice as to what products we choose to use and that together we can remove plastics and chemicals from our society is one of our core values, but we also want to make sure that we are doing our part for our communities right here in New Zealand.
In 2016, the Oi team focused on helping those in need, donating our products to people who can really use them. Two major groups we’re proud to support are Helping Hand, a wonderful organisation who reach out to the most vulnerable people in our community, and the Auckland City Mission, gifting 700 tampons to both charities to reach those who can really use our support.
Oi customers were also incredibly generous in 2016, donating 288 boxes of our products to women in need through our partnership in Annah Stretton’s RAW (Reclaim Another Women) Initiative when they purchased their own Oi products in our online store.
