Why Your Campus Should Have Aunt Flow

Why Your Campus Should Have Aunt Flow

A new school year can be scary, whether you’re a faculty member or a student. You’ve got new schedules and routines, fresh-faced folks looking to learn and grow into themselves, and a level of uncertainty around what exactly you’re hoping to accomplish this year. 

What should be certain is that if your period catches you by surprise, Aunt Flow will be there for you. Between all-nighters, early mornings, and the longest days, your flow doesn’t always fit your schedule, but that’s what we’re here for.

As we kick off a new school year, here is why your campus should have Aunt Flow.

Aunt Flow Pads and Tampons Are FREE For Menstruators

1 in 10 US college students experience period poverty or lack access to menstrual products when needed. Why wouldn’t universities want to give their students free access to those products, especially for as low as $10 per menstruating student a year? Just take Princeton University’s Preeti Iyer’s word for it.

86% of students using the products are using them because Mother Nature caught them unprepared. Instead of running from the engineering building back to the dorms to grab a tampon and then back to class in time for an exam, having stocked menstrual products helps the student body be exactly what they should be—students who are at school to learn.”

Aunt Flow Products Are Sustainable

Did you know most pads and tampons aren’t made with organic cotton? Students deserve to know the ingredients in their period products. That’s why we stock restrooms with our organic cotton and sustainable bathroom products. Why not help menstruators AND the environment at the same time?

Aunt Flow Promotes Inclusivity

No matter the college, its student body can be diverse in a number of ways/its student body is representative of many various forms. Regardless of what these differences may be, we believe that period products should be accessible to all students, regardless of ability or language. How do we ensure accessibility for all?

  • Our dispensers are ADA compliant and easy to use. All you have to do is push a button to dispense (no knobs!).
  • We refer to all pads and tampons as ‘period products,’ rather than ‘feminine hygiene products’ to create kinder spaces and eliminate gendered language.
  • Our dispensers include braille, English, Spanish, French, and icons!

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.®
