NJ Period Project
On average a woman spends $120 a year on menstrual supplies. For low income and homeless women that price may as well be $1 million.
In her lifetime a woman will use over 11,000 pads or tampons.
Why not reusable? Many women living in poverty don't have access to free washing machines (which would be needed for reusable pads), and some don't have a reliable place to wash their hands before using a menstrual cup. Disposables are the most convenient.
Who will receive these products? I'm currently partnered with several food banks, emergency shelters and long term housing. For a complete list of recipients please email.
