Wā Collective is a social enterprise. These ladies are a collective of fun, empowered humans ending period poverty, period waste and the period taboo in Aotearoa.
Menstrual cups are just the beginning.
Two years ago the Wā Collective put out a survey. A bloody good one, with a bloody terrible finding:
🍒 Of 1000 menstruating students, one third had skipped class because of a lack of access to menstrual products
To say the least, they were shocked and saddened. Via a lot of maths, they then discovered:
🍒 NZ sends 357 million disposible tampons and pads to landfill anually, that's enough to wrap the circumference of the globe.
So, they set about pulling a few strings to find the best solution, with no strings attached.
Donated & Subsidised cups
It's simple, every gold standard Wā menstrual cup sold subsidises one for a student in need, keeping students in class and stopping period poverty from adversely affecting education in Aotearoa. #StandingOvulation
You can either donate a cup here or get one for yourself which subsidises one for a student.
