Guest Post: LUÜNA - Social Impact & Period Poverty in Asia

Posted by Gee Ann on

LUÜNA is Asia’s social impact period care company. We believe in making periods better; for our bodies, our planet, and those in need. We do this in 3 ways; by providing healthy, planet-friendly period care, hosting taboo-busting period workshops and giving back through our social impact business model. 10% of every purchase funds period product donations to vulnerable communities.

We believe everyone deserves an honest period hence we use every purchase of our products to equip vulnerable communities with access to healthy period products & taboo-free knowledge about their bodies alongside alleviating period poverty in Asia. Here’s how we do it:

1. The LUÜNA Period Collective

We established a global network of social initiatives, whose communities in need we support through donations of healthy & planet-friendly period care and providing taboo-free menstrual health education. These organisations work tirelessly to tackle deeply embedded menstrual stigma, together, we’re combatting period poverty.

2. A better period

In 2020, in response to the impact of COVID-19, we launched a new global initiative called, ‘a better period’. Using a portion of profits from purchases made by our community and corporate partners, we continue to raise period product donations to vulnerable groups affected by the virus including frontline medical staff & low-income families.

3. You Buy, We Give

In 2019, through our You Buy, We Give initiative, we raised over 1,000 cups to be donated to communities in need. alongside the donation of products, we delivered our #NoMoreSecrets workshops to promote safe usage of the cup and break down the menstrual stigmas prevalent within many low-income communities.

In summary, we believe that by incorporating these initiatives to help alleviate period poverty, we are better able to educate and provide essential period products to those in need. Education is the most important thing that can be shared through the generations and we hope to be able to continue to bridge that gap especially within low-income communities.
