Hey Girls www.heygirls.co.uk was set up with the philosophy that girls and young women should never have to compromise their wellbeing or their health. Period Poverty is a first world problem and girls and young women regularly skip school and work because they cannot afford sanitary products. So thats why we set up Hey Girls – to offer a no leak, super comfy, chlorine and bleach free, environmentally friendly product that tackles period poverty in the UK, and all the profits from Hey Girls Buy One Give One Sanitary Pad go straight to help girls and young women in need as for every box sold to a customer Hey Girls gives a box away.
Our health and education objectives allow us to distribute sanitary pads to girls from disadvantaged communities in the UK, in schools via teachers networks and girls groups thus assisting girls to manage menstruation in a way that doesn’t put them at risk of infection. Educational packs and workshops for girls and boys create awareness around the benefits of better menstrual health and help build confidence, self-esteem, improve educational attainments, participation in sports and an increased quality of life.
