Access to period products

During the COVID-19 pandemic, an increasing number of people have struggled to get period products and are worried about their ability to afford them in the future.

This has been driven by multiple factors including:

  • Reduced access to stores
  • Increased short term consumption
  • Supply shortages
  • Increased demand in foodbanks and other relief organizations
  • Increased unemployment and financial hardships.1

Always® has been helping address this need by producing and shipping pads to stores as fast as we can and by donating them to those most-in-need and healthcare workers through our charity partners.
