PERIODS ARE NOT A LUXURY

Help us fight against period poverty by donating menstrual products for those that can’t afford them

PERIOD PRODUCT DONATION

Period products are not cheap and for anyone menstruating they are an absolute necessity. Sadly, the reality is that many people living in the UK are unable afford them and for those living in poverty they can be forced to use socks stuffed with tissues, toilet paper and old scraps of fabric or nothing at all. Period products should not be an unattainable luxury.

We believe that menstrual care is a basic human right. Period. No-one should have to face the distressing, monthly burden of not having access to products due to their financial situation. That’s why we’ve launched a Period Product Donation initiative in a number of our stores and The Body Shop At Home network to help create a sustainable flow of menstrual protection for those who can’t afford it. The contents will be given to local organisations in need, including refuges, drop-in centres and shelters.

Bloody Good Period

We’ve teamed up with Bloody Good Period, a charitable project who provide menstrual supplies to asylum seekers, refugees and those who can't afford them. Gabby Edlin founded Bloody Good Period when she realised that food banks and drop in centres were not supplying menstrual products in the quantity or at the frequency that is required by a menstruator living in poverty i.e every month, several products a day and most were not thinking to supply them at all.

“Periods have been considered shameful, secret and stigmatised for so long, is it any wonder people with less money have been forced to go without instead of being able to access products for free? We are delighted to partner with The Body Shop to extend our reach throughout the UK, providing period supplies to those who can't afford them”. GABBY EDLIN, CEO & FOUNDER OF BLOODY GOOD PERIOD

Our Period Product Donation boxes will enable customers, supporters and likeminded activists to donate packs of unopened period pads helping to make them more accessible for those in need. Let’s take a stand for menstrual equity and create Pad-emonium together!

The Body Shop Period Product Donation initiative can be currently found in several cities across the UK. If your local store is not included you can still support the menstrual movement by donating direct to Bloody Good Period.
