"Every single one of us can make a small difference alone. And together, we're even more powerful, we can make huge change. "

At FLUX Undies, we're on a mission to change the world of period care - that includes fighting period poverty and improving access to proper menstrual care. When you buy from us, we give back to people in need, so you can purchase with purpose.
Changing the world of period care means tackling the stigma that still surrounds periods. We're committed to encouraging open honest conversations and a safe comfortable space for people to talk and learn about the things no one is talking about.
Period poverty means not having access to menstrual care products that allow you to properly and comfortably manage your cycle.
For many people across the globe, this can mean using things like toilet paper, newspaper, or old fabrics. In turn, the lack of menstrual care products and the shame and embarrassment that is often associated with their periods often causes people to stop doing important things, such as attending school or work.
Period poverty is a global issue and affects people in many different ways. We think it's time it comes to an end.
Period stigma is when someone feels shame or embarrassment around the idea of periods, having a period or even talking about periods. These stigmas and taboos have conditioned us to believe that menstruation is something that is dirty and should not be discussed.
At FLUX Undies we're all about busting taboos and encouraging open and honest conversations that allow people to learn and grow. We want young people to feel prepared when expecting their first period and not to feel any shame or embarrassment when discussing it.
We aim to provide a safe comfortable community and space for people to learn and discuss, and we partner with great teams that run educational programs in schools, colleges and youth facilities to open these conversations up with the next generations.
