Bloody Good Period aims to create a sustainable flow (pun intended) of sanitary protection for those who can't afford to buy them.
Menstrual supplies are not cheap, but for anyone with a period, they are, of course, an absolute necessity. It is absurd that they are not free for those who need them. Many living in poverty resort to using toilet paper, old scraps of fabric or nothing at all.
We want to take the financial burden out of the most annoying time of the month by providing supplies to those who need them.
We supply 15 asylum seeker drop in centres based in London and Leeds.
Our ambition is to supply many more food banks and drop-in centres across the UK so that bloody good periods can be had by all!
About the founder
Bloody Good Period was started by Gabby Edlin who decided something needed to be done about the fact that very few food banks and asylum seeker drop-in centres were providing feminine hygiene products - despite a desperate need. What started as a whip-round on Facebook is now a growing enterprise with a vision to end period poverty.
