Period Pledge

Does your business’s washrooms provide toilet paper? Hand soap? Paper towels? These basic hygiene necessities allow your staff and guests to enjoy their time in your establishment. However, one thing missing from many washrooms is access to menstrual hygiene products. We know your business wants to offer the best customer service and washroom equality possible, therefore we have created the Period Pledge.

The Period Pledge is an effort to eradicate period poverty. This campaign is initiated to further the mission of No Period Without, to help provide and advocate for free menstrual hygiene products for all those who menstruate.

At No Period Without, we recognize the extra cost this will cause your business. However, the social gain is tremendous. Based on research of companies who have provided free menstrual hygiene products the upkeep cost has been found to be minimal. For more information on the corporate value becoming a Pledge Partner will provide your business, click on the How to and FAQ page below, or send an email to info@noperiodwithout.com.

Begin your process by signing the pledge and publicly dedicating your company to the fight to end period poverty and create gender equality.
