The Period Co. Impact
Waste Products Diverted
Since our start in 2016, we have helped thousands of users switch to environmentally friendly reusable menstrual products.
By our estimates, we have diverted 11,406,385 disposable pads and tampons, the equivalent of 57,000kg of plastic, from entering our waste system.
2% Give Back
The Period Co. has proudly partnered with Go With The Flow to give 2% of our total online sales in-kind to their cause. These menstrual healthcare products will be distributed to beneficiaries under accredited social service agencies.
Go With The Flow (GWTF) is a local charity that aims to provide better access to menstrual healthcare for Singapore's low-income communities, through donation and distribution of menstrual necessities.
Our Brands' Impact
Eco Femme is a women-led social enterprise founded in 2010. Based in Tamil Nadu, India, their goal is to create environmental and social change through revitalising menstrual practices that are healthy, environmentally sustainable, culturally responsive and empowering.
Pad for Pad Program
Pad for Pad connects customers and adolescent girls in India through the shared experience of menstruation, respect for our bodies, and love for the earth. When people around the world choose to use Eco Femme's cloth pads, their purchase ensures that other girls, who might not otherwise be able to, get to access clean, alternative menstrual products and answers to their questions.
Pad for Sisters
Eco Femme provides cloth pads in bulk at a subsidised price which reflects willingness of Women Self Help Group members to pay (based on research and market trials). Alternatively for organizations or clubs interesting in sponsoring cloth pads for people who otherwise could not afford the products, they offer bulk rate discounts.
