International Women's Day is a celebration of the women in this world. Past, present and future. However, without bravery, action and challenging what is in front of us there can be no change and no success in bringing gender equality. So this year International Women's Day is about raising this awareness.

We would love to help raise a awareness of this statement by focussing on plastic-free periods. A reminder of the long battle in banning taxes on period products because of the people that were brave enough to challenge it! However, although part of this battle has been won - unfortunately, there is still a little way to go!

So how about it - do you fancy a challenge? Read more information in our blog post below on how you can help!

A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change. So let's all #choosetochallenge.

The Period Product Tax Has Finally Been Scrapped! What now?

Reusable period PANTS are still taxed at 20% as they are not deemed to be designed solely for your menstrual flow, which is ridiculous. Help us challenge this unfair and unsustainable outcome! 👊

Find your MP

Email your MP. Use this template.

Ask your MP to write to the HM treasury to update the VAT categories for menstrual products and recognise period pants as one of the menstrual products and make sustainable periods 20% cheaper.

Use the template above and make sure you write your full name and address. The MPs are more likely to response if you put your full name and address. Please only email to your MP of your constituency.

Help us to spread the word!

Shop Plastic Free Periods

By choosing a plastic free period you are proving that reusable period products are a necessity for your period, but also for this world.

Did you know, disposable sanitary ware accounts for 200,000 tonnes of land fill per year in the UK and the average woman will use over 11,000 disposable, one-time-use menstrual products in her reproductive lifetime.

A sustainable flow of menstrual protection for those who can't afford it.  

Launched in collaboration with WEN's Environmenstrual Week in October 2020, you can now donate a plastic free period product to A Bloody Good Period who distribute products to over 40 asylum seekers shelters in the UK. Sadly, the reality is that they're a luxury that many refugees and asylum seekers living in the UK cannot afford. Many people living in poverty resort to using toilet paper, old scraps of fabric or nothing at all. 

How It Works

1. Simply select the period product you would like to donate. 

2. The purchase price for each donation is c.10% cheaper than the rrp.

3. At the end of each month, we then send all of your donations direct to A Bloody Good Period.

4. Through  8th-12th March 2021, or every product you donate, we will match it in celebration of International Women's Day.

***update*** We donated 34 items during 19th-26th October 2020. THANK YOU!

You will not receive the product yourself when purchasing through this option. The item will show in your cart amongst the items you will receive as usual.

If this is the only item you purchase, we will refund the shipping cost after you purchase.

***update 27/10/20, you can now donate reusable period products too*** 

About A Bloody Good Period

Menstrual supplies are not cheap, but for anyone with a period, they are, of course, an absolute necessity. "We give period products to those who can’t afford them, and provide menstrual education to those less likely to access it. And we help everybody talk about periods."


Struggling to decide which period pants are best for you?

We've all been there.... organic cotton? medium/heavy flow? premium or basic? I know it turns our mind to mush too! 🙈 Take a look at our new and simple blog post and save yourself lots of time and confusion! Including what they are, what they are made from and all the reusable period pant jargon and why we love them!

We hope we've given you something to think about on International Women's Day and you are feeling inspired to #choosetochallenge in some way! If periods aren't doing it for you, why not reach out to the women in your life that are worth celebrating instead - the small things in life are usually the most appreciated.
