Pay it forward - Period pants
Period poverty affects 1 in 10 people with periods in the UK.
A study by Plan international in 2017 found that 1 in 10 people with periods aged 14 to 21 can't afford to buy menstrual products. 49% of people with periods have missed a day of school due to their period and nearly half were embarrassed about having periods.
Our pay it forward scheme means that by purchasing a pair of zero waste period pants from Thinx, we can donate a pair to someone in need.
This product is a donation to someone effected by period poverty.
For each pair of 'pay it forward pants' you buy we will donate a pair within 30 days.
These period pants are donated to Exeter's St Petrocks charity that helps local people suffering from homelessness and who are vulnerably housed Find out more here
Such a great scheme, hopefully someone else is more comfortable now.
The two Thinx I got for myself make me soooo happy, I am even happier I payed one forward for someone else.
Very happy to support this initiative. Well done Sancho’s!
