Product Choices

Each menstrual product that Period Postal offers was chosen with great care based on accessibility, quality, sustainability of sourcing, ethical working conditions, and lack of gender-based marketing.

We are always looking for ways to improve. Please send your feedback to periodpostal@wwu.edu if you have concerns or ideas about our purchasing.

The companies we purchase from include:

Period Aisle

Period Aisle is a B Corp Certified Company recognized for meeting “high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.” Their products are lined with organic cotton and both of their manufacturing partners are owned and operated by women.

Flex

Flex’s menstrual cups are made with 100% medical grade silicone and their menstrual discs are made with 100% medical-grade polymers (no BPA, phthalates, or rubber latex). Their menstrual cups are designed to be removable with one hand, making them more accessible than some other menstrual cup options. Flex manufactures their products in the United States and Canada. They also combat menstrual stigma through their blog, The Fornix.

Menstruation Equity

PEOPLE HAVE PERIODS, meaning not all women have periods, not all people who have periods are women, and people who don't fit into the cisgender binary often face stigma and risk around menstruation, as do people with mobility limitations or other disabilities.

Period Postal operates from the knowledge that students at WWU do not have consistent access to the menstrual products that meet their specific needs without having to sacrifice money for other essential costs. We also know that students with marginalized identities often face higher barriers to accessing these products.

Broadly speaking, Period Postal aims to fight stigma, eliminate cost barriers, support students with marginalized identities who experience menstruation, prioritize accessibility, and advance menstruation equity at Western.

Specifically speaking, Period Postal exists to distribute free menstrual products to Western students and to learn how to do that better by listening to students. If you have any feedback for us, please email periodpostal@wwu.edu.

Project Funding

Period Postal is operated by students in the WWU Sexual Health Advocacy Group (SHAG) and their advisor, Liz Stuart. This project is funded by a student-written grant from the Sustainability, Equity, and Justice Fund and supported by the Counseling and Wellness Center.
