Here, at The Flow, we’re motivated to get the word out about resuables because…they’re great and more people should try them. Kind to your body. Light on your wallet. And easy on the environment. For example, one menstrual cup can stay in up to 12 hours, last up to 10 years and cost only $20-$40. It may not be rock science but it is mind-blowing!
We’re especially interested in getting information to moms and to soon-to-be/new menstruators because we want to do better for our teen daughters and other girls. We hope that they can experience menstruation in a climate of period positivity and with more choices. And help spread that confidence and power to girls everywhere. We also distribute information and reusables to the people who need them most – low-income menstruators here in the US and everywhere!
Finally, we want to support and motivate others to support equity legislation around menstruation – like removing the “tampon tax” and providing free menstrual products to people who can’t afford them. It’s about fairness, social justice and health. Hopefully, unlike so many other issues, it’s something we can all get behind.
So please help us get closer to the day when all girls can start their menstrual journey with laughter and choices, and we all live better, fairer and healthier!
