Why should I provide menstrual products at a school?Healthy students = happy and successful students. Menstruation is a vital component to the overall health and wellbeing of all who menstruate and while the average female will menstruate for over 40 years of her life, almost every menstruator will begin their period during their schooling years. Young people have more frequent period emergencies and are less likely to be able to afford products. Students report feeling ashamed, distracted, unsettled and embarrassed when they are not prepared for their periods while at school. FACT: 1 in 5 menstruators in Swiss Romande feel they cannot always afford the products they need and 95% of those who cannot afford products are under the age of 25. FACT: 7 out of 10 Swiss menstruators have had to leave school in an emergency to find the menstrual products they needed.
Are the products in Fem.Friendly dispensers safe?We partner with leading brand, Organ(y)c, to stock our dispensers with GOTS certified non-applicator tampons and MADE SAFE™ certified pads with wings. The products are trusted by gynecologists and dermatologists and DO NOT contain any of the harmful chemicals like synthetics, polymers and chlorine that are traditionally present in non-organic products. Every piece is individually wrapped to avoid cross-contamination and ensure the highest possible hygiene standards.
