VOICE FOR CHANGE
We have periods and we are proud of it. At Fern, we’re striving to be the voice of positivity and encouragement for people with periods.
The stigma around menstruation is still prominent:
Environmenstrual has found that 48% of girls in the UK are embarrassed by their period – let’s change this for all individuals who menstruate.
WEAR, WASH, REUSE
Our sustainably sourced, reusable period products help to fight climate change and reduce plastic pollution by lessening the amount of disposable products going to landfill.
We use only the finest certified organic cotton core for our period pads, along with bamboo fibre to maintain and promote a sustainable fabric footprint.
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
We believe education on period products to be key. Education gives people who menstruate the power to make the right choices for them and their body, their health, and the environment around them.
PERIODS ARE NOT A LUXURY
We believe that everyone who experiences periods should have access to period products and safe, hygienic spaces in which to use them. Everyone should have the right to manage their own menstruation without shame or stigma.
About 10% of girls in the UK have been unable to afford period products; 15% have struggled to afford them; and 19% have changed to a less suitable product due to cost – Plan UK
At Fern, we stand by the message that a period is not a luxury, which is why we donate 2% from our turnover to help fight period poverty.
