“Everyone of us is here because someone got their period. That’s something that should be celebrated and supported. Period Poverty and accessibility to menstrual hygiene products is an everyone problem and it’s our goal to ensure there is No Period Without.”

About No Period Without.

No Period Without. was founded in 2017 when an Edmonton homeless  woman asked Scarlet Bjornson for change. Out of curiosity, as Scarlet gave her some money she asked the woman what she planned to spend the money on. The woman replied, “Well truthfully ma’am, I would like to buy some booze, but I need to buy some tampons.” In Scarlet’s words “This hit me like a brick. I went to my car and grabbed my emergency stash of tampons from the car and gave them to her.” She took to social media to ask her friends if anyone was interested in helping with a tampon drive and the response was overwhelming both from those that wanted to help, and from charitable organizations in the city hoping to be a recipient of the donations.

The overwhelming community support and requests for support from local organizations highlighted the ongoing issue of period poverty in Edmonton. It was clear there was a need for continual and consistent support as well as advocacy. This led to the evolution of No Period Without.

Did you KNow?

The Cost of Tampons

1 tampon every 6 hours = 4 tampons per day x 5 days of a period = 20 tampons per cycle

20 tampons per cycle x 456 periods = 9,120

At 36 tampons per box, that’s 253.3 boxes x $7 = $1,773.33

Women in Crisis in Canada

On any given night in Canada, 3,491 women and their 2,724 children sleep in shelters because it isn’t safe at home.

Approximately 70,000 tampons needed for women in crisis across Canada every month!

Period Pain

Periods are more painful in the cold.

Cold weather can also make your period last longer and be heavier.

Age of Puberty for Girls

Girls used to start menstruating at 16

Even as relatively recently as the 1800s, girls didn’t get their periods until they were well into their teens.

Today, whereas, the average age to reach puberty is 12 – better nutrition and more stress are to blame, says science.
