What is Aunt Flow’s mission?
Aunt Flow’s mission is to fight period poverty and stigma. Alongside ensuring that businesses and schools offer free period products for employees and students, our donation program supports activist-led pilot program initiatives and various grassroots nonprofit organizations.
Which bathrooms should be stocked with Aunt Flow?
We recommend stocking every female-identified, all gender and male-identified bathrooms with period products.
For male-identified bathrooms, we do not recommend installing our dispensers in visible places inside the actual restroom. This is because privacy creates safe spaces for the transgender community and beyond.
What is period poverty?
Will people take more than they need?
When dispensers are first installed in bathrooms, there could be higher than normal usage, which then levels out over time once people learn that period products are not just a one-time luxury item but will be available ongoing.
To prevent the waste or misuse of Aunt Flow period products and dispensers, we have anti-vandalism signage!
How much does it cost?
We recommend estimating product quantities based on supplemental, as-needed period product usage at approximately 5 pieces per menstruator per year. You can use our handy pricing calculator to get a custom quote!
