Goondiwindi farming family team up with cotton tampon entrepreneur

A Brisbane-based startup creating tampons using Australian cotton has provided a potential new market for a Goondiwindi-based farming family.

Down Under Cotton, the brainchild of Kim Coskun, has sourced cotton from the Newell family's Korolea Farming as part of the journey to bring the product to the market. 

Ms Coskun said the idea was sparked when she saw a tampon commercial in 2015 and felt a disconnect between the imagery in the advertising and women's actual experiences.
