CDA Highlights the Implementation of Aunt Flow at O’Hare

On May 18, the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) published the new accessibility features at O’Hare and Midway International Airports.

Notably, the article mentions the installation of Aunt Flow period product dispensers in women’s and gender-neutral restrooms on the secure side of Terminals 1, 2 and 3 at O’Hare. This comes as a result of the new partnership between Aunt Flow and the CDA.

The free Aunt Flow products replace fee-based dispensers currently used in the airport. A total of 55 dispensers will be installed, including: 

  • 18 in Terminal 1
  • 9 in Terminal 2
  • 28 in Terminal 3

Installation of the Aunt Flow dispensers, serviced by Citron Hygiene, began in January 2023 and is scheduled for completion this July. The CDA encourages all visitors to O’Hare to be mindful of other travelers and to only take what they need.

We are committed to creating a supportive and inclusive travel experience for everyone who passes through O’Hare and Midway, and we work closely with the FAA Office of Civil Rights and the Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities to ensure we’re meeting the needs of all travelers.

 CDA Commissioner Jamie L. Rhee

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.®
