A sustainable flow of menstrual protection for those who can't afford it.
Launching in collaboration with WEN's Environmenstrual Week 19th-26th 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 19th-26th October 2020, for every product you donate, we will match it! ***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*** Please note, at the moment you can only donate our organic cotton single-use pads, liners and tampons. We totally get how brilliant reusable products are, but in many cases they're not suitable for many of the women A Bloody Good Period work with. Refugees and asylum seekers generally live in accommodation without reliable access to lockable bathrooms, for example, to be able to practice using cups; or reliable washing facilities to keep cups or reusable pads clean. Many have also suffered trauma, at minimum displacement and the journey to reach this country, but possibly also including FGM, which makes using cups difficult or impossible. We therefore prioritise getting these women the products they are familiar with and feel comfortable with.
