What is Aunt Flow?
Free-vend tampon and pad dispensing system with 100% organic menstrual products being made available at sports stadiums, Fortune 500 companies, and schools and universities.
Why it matters:
The average menstruator spends upwards of $5,000 in their lifetimes on period products.
Why you should care:
Period products like pads and tampons are a basic and constant necessity – equivalent to toilet paper. Yet, it is treated as a luxury that is often stigmatized and ignored instead of a fundamental human right. It is estimated that over 1.8 billion people menstruate monthly, but out of this number, only 500 million have access to period products.
