We are on a mission to set a new standard for public restrooms across Europe
Here is how it all started
From Ridicule to Success
Back in 2018, Amanda and Lova, who were inseparable best friends, embarked on a school project called Period Pack®. This initiative came about when the two young ladies faced the embarrassment of getting their period in public and having no access to necessary products. Their shared frustration sparked a desire to make a change and help others who found themselves in similar situations.
Breaking the Taboo: How periods became a topic people want to be a part of
As we delved deeper into the issue, we realized that half of the population was affected by the lack of attention given to menstrual products. It was alarming that nobody was openly talking about this matter.
Determined to bring about a positive change, we set out with a grand vision of making period products as common as toilet paper in public bathrooms. To gain a better understanding of the issue, we conducted a market poll by asking anyone entering the restroom whether they carried period products with them. Not a single person did.
We returned to school with a renewed sense of purpose and started brainstorming innovative solutions that had never been explored before.
Our journey was not an easy one, but we are proud to have succeeded in breaking down the taboo surrounding periods and making it a topic that people want to be a part of. Looking back, we remember presenting our business idea to our class and being met with laughter and ridicule. However, we refused to give up on our vision.
Over the years, through hard work and dedication, we have grown into something beyond our wildest dreams. We have not only made period products accessible but have also created a sense of community where people can openly discuss menstruation without feeling ashamed or embarrassed.
It’s a fact that toilet paper is provided for free in public restrooms, so why aren’t period products given the same attention? Our goal is to normalize menstruation and make period products a basic necessity that is freely available to all.
