Periods are a fact of life
Here’s a staggering stat: half of everyone in BC who menstruates – women, girls, non-binary people, and trans folx – has struggled to purchase products for themselves at some time in their life.
It’s more than an inconvenience. Limited access to menstrual products can be a health risk. And period poverty can stop people from reaching their full potential.
Families skip out on important social events. Single moms have to make tough choices at the supermarket. These sacrifices have an impact on all of us—not just those who menstruate.
