By You, For Her
Our give back scheme empowers
girls & women across the globe.
With your support, we're fighting for every girl to have access to menstrual products, keeping them in education, and empowering women and girls worldwide. When you purchase FLUX Undies, you give back to girls in need across the globe. Read on to learn more:

Without access to menstrual care, girls in developing countries are often forced to stay home from school during their periods, leading them to miss 10-20% of school days every month. UNICEF has estimated that roughly 1 in 10 girls in Africa miss school because of their periods each month.
Often, the cost of sanitary products for girls is simply too high, forcing them to skip school to tend to their bleeding. In some countries, like Malawi, sanitary pads cost the equivalent of an entire day’s salary. In Kenya, two-thirds of women can’t afford sanitary pads.
Apart from cost, stigma also plays a major role in preventing girls from continuing their education past puberty. In India, it's estimated that 1 in 5 girls drop out of school after they get their periods.
We believe everyone deserves the right to an education and access to sanitary products, and so for every purchase made by you, a reusable cloth pad is donated to a girl in need, with our 'By You, For Her' giving back scheme.
We've teamed up with a family run manufacturers in India who produce our reusable cloth pads. By the end of 2019, we will have donated over 10,000 reusable cloth pads to girls across the globe.
We distribute our reusable cloth pads directly to women's shelters, girls' schools, and orphanages in developing countries and also work with partners like Freedom4Girls who help in making sure the reusable cloth pads reach those who really need them across the globe.
Thanks to your purchases of FLUX Undies, we're able to make these donations possible and continue working on our mission in helping girls in need. When you purchase our period-proof undies, you're doing more than buying comfortable and functional underwear to upgrade your own period — you're also helping girls across the globe access proper menstrual care, stay in education, and feel comfortable, confident, and dignified.
