The Super Project (Sustainable Periods)
We did it
On 14th July 2021 we successfully raised £920 with 23 supporters in 69 days

We want to increase access to reusable sanitary wear to the most vulnerable in our community and reduce period poverty.

Lets talk periods

One of our hopes for this project is that it will get more people comfortable talking about their periods!

This is something we've been seeing since we very first started to look into reusable sanitary wear. We find that people DO want to talk about it, its just something they don't have a safe space to do so. We've found through conversations with people that reusable sanitary wear has loads more benefits than just financially. Many menstruating people have told us how they always struggled with disposables due to irritation, infections and thrush, issues that have gone away since they switched.

If you would like to give reusable sanitary wear a try, you can choose a reward instead of just a simple donation. We offer 2 types; a starter pack (a basic kit giving you chance to have a try of reusable sanitary wear), or a jump right in pack (which should give you plenty of reusable sanitary wear to completely switch straight away). 

To those of you that have already donated, we cannot thank you enough! Please continue to share our project and get the word out to help us support as many people as possible.

This reward is for those of you that know us and support our recycling and sustainability aims. We make lots of bags, and have been working on a Owl Emblem Day Bag, roomy enough for all your bits, a pocket for your phone, a contrasting purse attached to the handle and best of all a cute owl made from vinyl samples attached to the front. With a buttoned closure for security and wear on your shoulder handles, it makes a great summer bag.
