Period dignity is essential to health and wellbeing at work. It’s only right that female team members should have menstrual protection provided in every working environment. The Hey Girls Period Dignity campaign is part and parcel of a wider campaign to assist employers, leisure and facility providers to make conditions a little more equal for women at work and play.
Each pack contains everything that you need to hygienically deal with any menstrual situation. Hand sanitizer and tissues are also included in each box, just in case these essentials aren’t available in the toilets – which isn’t uncommon in the industry. The packs contain an array of sanitary products with a range of sizes and types, to cover whatever type of emergency they may be dealing with.
The box is small enough so that it can be stored away neatly in the women’s toilets and recycled when all of the contents are gone. Once each box is opened, it is the owners to keep and use as little or as often as needed.
This initiative started in 2020 and every piece purchased for our projects, the equivalent is donated to a local charity to help eradicate period poverty. In 2020 the business helped donate 1916 pieces to help support women and provide period dignity.
Overall, these packs have been able to open up the conversation regarding period poverty in the work place. They help females feel more secure in their setting and able to challenge the stigma against periods in a predominantly male industry. They also potentially stop people feeling negatively towards their natural cycle and holding them back from working in a dynamic and exciting environment.
