We’re fighting for period equality
Because of our day job (being the UK’s leading hygiene services company), period equality is a cause that is a natural fit for phs and something that we are passionate about supporting.
But we’re not just talking about period equality, we’re taking action too. phs are proud to be contributing to a newly formed Period Poverty Taskforce, chaired by the Minister for Women and Equalities, Plan International UK and Procter & Gamble. The taskforce will focus on tackling period poverty, providing period equality and end stigma around menstruation.
In consultation with schools, local authorities and FM providers, we have also developed a free-vend sanitary machine which we believe is the best solution in providing free sanitary products to young women. Located within washrooms, it’s not only convenient, it’s also discreet and offers a managed and hygienic method of distributing products without the embarrassment of having to ask a teacher or colleague.
We believe every woman should have access to free sanitary products – because they are a necessity, not a luxury.
We’ve created some resources, which are free to download, with further information on our period equality initiative and the free-coin vend.
