Hello from the Lunagals!

Hello world, and welcome to Lunagals: Adventures in Social Entrepreneurship!

Way back (as in the early 90s!) when we started our business, our focus was on making and selling products that make a difference in the world: we didn’t call it social/mission/impact etc yet – we were just entrepreneurs trying to build a successful values-based business.

As the years went by, we tried out all kinds of ideas, raised money,took chances, launched products and multiple websites, hustled at craft fairs and trade shows, started our families, and generally made it up as we went along. It was and remains busy, fun, stressful, creative, fascinating and highly rewarding. To us, this path is about as awesome as it gets: earning a living, creating employment for others, doing something that we believe in and making a difference

A few years ago, we started to notice that people like us had a name: social entrepreneurs. We also started receiving a growing stream of requests for interviews, speaking gigs, mentoring and brain picking sessions from aspiring entrepreneurs and changemakers. We love to share our story and encourage others, but it was becoming exhausting re-sending the same links and answering the same questions over and over again.

This site is basically all of it: personal and business stories, videos, blog posts, media articles and more. Want the real scoop on what 40+ years of trying to change the world through business looks like? Here you go!

Oh and hey: if you want to go deeper, let us know. All funds raised via our consultation sessions go towards funding United Girls of the World, a registered non-profit society that supports girls empowerment around the world.

With best wishes for your success,

The Lunagals

PS: Let us know what you think about the site and ask questions.

Look! It’s our new Website & Blog

screenshot_1000xWe’re doing a big happy dance here at Lunapads because we’ve given ourselves a fabulous new makeover! Here’s a highlight of what we’re excited about at Lunapads.com.

New Logo & Branding: We are thrilled to finally be syncing up our new brand artwork (which has been gradually rolling out since 2014) with a complete website makeover. Our fresh new logo & branding is thanks to the fantastic design work by Lake Visual Communication with branding advice from Cause+Affect.

New Site Design & Functionality: Our newly designed & upgraded website + blog is thanks to the considerable efforts of our incredibly talented in-house webmaster Lisa. Our gratitude also extends to our outside developer Josh, and to several members of our team for their ideas and generous support – especially Morgan and Kitty, who put in a substantial amount of work and research to help make this website happen. Many thanks to all of our site testers and everyone who shared their helpful feedback with us before launch, too.

Mobile responsive: Mobile devices are ubiquitous and so this feature is essential. Now the new site looks just as good on your mobile device as it does on your desktop. Try it out and share it with your friends!

Improved navigation and functionality: Upgrading our site was no small technological feat but we love all of the new features that make shopping easier and more fun. For example, the convenient “Shop By” categories help you narrow down your options quickly. Looking only for “leakproof” Luna Undies in size XL? No problem! Navigate to our Luna Undies section and use our shop by filters to narrow your choices down to the size and functionality you need.

New resources: For customers new to our collection, our Learn and Why Switch? sections feature easy to follow resources to help you navigate through the options and choose the right products to best suit your needs.

Find a Store: Our new store locator makes it easy to search for retailers in your area (and other online stores, too) that carry our products. Thanks to Christa & Tiffany for their help getting our store list updated just in time for launch!

Wholesale Application Form: Speaking of our store locator, are you a qualified business interested in carrying Lunapads, Luna Undies, or The DivaCup? We have a convenient new wholesale application form for you to use.

Paypal as a Payment option: We’ve added the convenience and security of Paypal. Why not use up some of the balance in your Paypal account to treat yourself to something special? (Note: you can still checkout securely with Authorize.net using your Visa or Mastercard if you don’t have a PayPal account)

New products for Health & Home, and Clothing too: We’re particularly excited about the new Sola Skin Care line. The coconut deodorant is flying off the shelves! We are always adding our favorite new products, including stylish apparel offerings like socks, leggings, and sleepwear.

We hope you like our new website as much as we do!
Please tell us what you think and share the link with friends.
