Providing long-term solutions to period poverty.
Period poverty, or the lack of access to adequate sanitary products, is real and disproportionately affects homeless, Indigenous and at-risk women.
In a bid to reverse this trend, Australian charity Share the Dignity is partnering with Melbourne-based feminine hygiene brand Moxie to donate menstrual cups to those in need. For the month of March, every menstrual cup purchased online will see one donated to an Indigenous woman in need.
The month-long charity drive has the potential to provide long-term solutions to ease period stress – if cared for, a menstrual cup can provide a years-long solution, plus it’s sustainable, safe and easy to use.
