Kelownian on Dragons' Den

Kelowna entrepreneur JB Owen will be featured on Thursday night's episode of Dragons' Den.

Owen pitched her eco-friendly female hygiene product, Lotus Liner.

"The disposable products did not make me feel good ... so I started looking into a solution for myself," Owen said.

In 2014, she started formulating Canada’s first hypo-allergenic, antibacterial, odour-free, stain-resistant feminine hygiene product alternative.

Owen says she took the step onto the dragons' stage back in May. 

"It was really nerve wracking.They take you to the top of the stairs and push you out the door. The next thing you know, you are walking down the steps and into the lights and camera."

"They were tough on me. Talking about menstruation wasn't their most exciting topic of conversation, I'm sure. They really want you to know your business and they expect you to know your numbers."

The Lotus Liner is available at Urban Fair and Pharmasave in Kelowna.

Owen says "1.7 billion pads go into landfills every year, and government and agencies aren't talking about the impact they are having on the environment."

Friends will be joining Owen at a viewing party at Moxie's on Cooper Road.
