We’re tackling period poverty
One in 10 young women are unable to afford period products, according to research from children’s charity Plan International UK. What’s more, nearly 140,000 girls have missed school because they couldn’t afford sanitary wear. The campaign to tackle period poverty is growing nationally with Scotland being the first government to announce a directive for free sanitary products in schools, colleges and universities. Local authorities in England and Wales are also offering similar strategies.
The purpose-designed free-vend dispenser was created in response to the growing period poverty agenda and rise in demand from our customers. Free-vend machines are a real solution in tackling period poverty. Installing these within washrooms gives females who need it instant and discrete access to sanitary products without the embarrassment or inconvenience of having to visit an office or school nurse. The products are also stored appropriately so they are kept clean and dry, dispensing one item at a time as needed. The phs slim line free-vend machines stock individually-wrapped sanitary products and can be accessed without the use of a coin.
As we strive to help overcome period poverty, phs free-vend machines offer a discrete and convenient solution to our customers, enabling you to offer products to young girls who cannot afford them.

We’re improving air quality
We spend 90% of our time indoors and around nine hours every day sharing spaces with others. We breathe in 10,000 litres of air every day and, when we are indoors, we are breathing in air which is five times more polluted than outdoor air. It can also create the perfect environment for germs and allergens to spread quickly – significant when you consider that sickness absence costs UK businesses £14bn a year.
phs air purifiers are designed to improve indoor air quality and clean the air free from contaminants and odours. Tests show that the filtration units within AERAMAX® PROFESSIONAL air purifiers remove 99.9% of harmful germs, allergens and particulates.
The benefits of clean air extend to everyone in a work and leisure environment whether within the workplace, school, reception area, washroom or kitchen. It is believed that improving air quality improves productivity, reduces absenteeism and common complaints such as odours, and creates a more positive and health-focused environment.
