26.4 MILLION WOMEN IN THE U.S. CAN'T AFFORD PERIOD PRODUCTS
Government assistance programs, like food stamps, don't cover tampons, pads, and liners
Most U.S. states tax period products as luxury items
Menstrual pads are the highest demand personal care item among female-focused service providers and shelters
THE CONSCIOUS PERIOD SOLUTION:
*For every box of tampons we sell, we dontate organic pads. This serves the immediate need of product for millions of women, every month.
We donate pads instead of tampons because:
-Pads can be used for a longer period of time
-Pads are more convenient to change, even if there is no bathroom available
-Pads pose fewer hygiene challenges
BUT WE'RE GOING EVEN FURTHER...
We're hard at work developing programs and manufacturing capabilities to employ the same women we serve and fill shelters' long term needs
