Loo of the Year Awards

Announcing the Period Dignity Award at the 2023 Loo of the Year Event

January 11, 2023

Make way, we’re coming to the UK for the 2023 Loo of the Year Awards!

What is the Loo of the Year Awards?

The annual Loo of the Year Awards is a competition that recognizes and rewards the very best washrooms throughout the UK and Ireland.

Since its introduction in 1987, the independently run and owned competition has focused on the simple objective: To encourage the highest possible standards in all ‘away from home’ washrooms. Winning a Loo of the Year Award is an established benchmark of washroom provision and compliance with national standards.

The Period Dignity Award

For this year’s Loo of the Year, Citron Hygiene and Aunt Flow are co-sponsoring the Period Dignity Award. 

A Period Dignity Award-Winning washroom provides a safe and hygienic place for people who menstruate. By providing touch-free, hygienic, in-cubicle sanitary bins and free period products, we can create an environment that is welcoming to menstruators! 

Period Dignity Washrooms are defined by, but not limited to, the following criteria:

  • Provision of free period products in all washrooms (female, male, and gender-free)
  • Regular stocking-up of period products to ensure they are available when needed
  • Provision of touch-free sanitary waste disposal bins in every cubicle
  • Provision of menstrual waste disposal bags for containment of sanitary waste
  • Regular and thorough emptying and sanitizing of sanitary hygiene bins

Citron Hygiene and Aunt Flow, along with Loo of the Year, are committed to advocating for menstrual equity and period dignity.

We are looking forward to seeing how all of the Loo of the Year contestants provide period dignity in their washrooms. See the full list of criteria and learn how we can work together at: citronhygiene.co.uk/period-dignity-award

Hi! I’m Claire. I founded Aunt Flow after getting my period in public without the supplies needed.

Founded in 2016, Aunt Flow is a certified WBENC women-owned company based in Columbus, Ohio. At 18 years old, I dedicated my life to developing a solution to ensure businesses and schools could sustainably provide quality period products, for free, in bathrooms. Our products are made with organic cotton (no weird stuff) and we are constantly working to reduce our environmental impact! For every 10 tampons and pads we sell, we donate 1 to a menstruator in need. I call this people helping people. PERIOD.®
