Higher Productivity

  • By providing free period products in the washroom, menstruators who unexpectedly get their period can stay at work instead of leaving to get pads, tampons, and possibly a change of clothes.

Healthier Employees

  • Out with the germ-ridden metal wall box, in with the touch-free, covered disposal. Employees are at lower risk of getting sick from viruses and bacteria that may live on old-fashioned disposal boxes.

Improved Sense of Wellness

  • 1 in 4 women in North America are unable to afford period products due to inflation. But with reliable access, they can focus on their priorities.

Menstrual equity in a nutshell refers to the safety, affordability, and accessibility of menstrual products to all menstruators. Furthermore, menstrual equity is not only defined by products, but rather an increased education and awareness surrounding reproductive care and the means to manage menstruation.

Providing free pads and tampons isn’t just supporting a basic human right, it’s a small price to pay for the comfort and dignity of employees, customers, students and visitors to public washrooms. From stained clothes, to lost work time, public embarrassment and serious health risks, the cost of period inequity can be, quite literally, life-threatening. Installing a tampon dispenser or sanitary napkin dispenser that offers free feminine hygiene products is critical for gender equality in the workplace.

Without a hygienic option for disposing menstrual products within washroom stalls, the chances of pads and tampons being flushed down the toilet increases significantly. Two thirds of plumbing blockages come from menstrual hygiene products being flushed down the toilets which increase your cost on plumbing maintenance.

Period dignity, also known as menstrual dignity, refers to shame-free and affordable access to everything a menstruator needs to manage their periods and maintain health – from free period products to accessible and hygienic sanitary napkin disposal.
