Reusable Pad Donations! Fund raw materials/UK living wage employee manufacturing. Help us end a person’s period poverty for up to 10 years!

by TCS-eco Ltd in Irvine, Scotland, United Kingdom

We are an urban based manufacturer of Cloth Sanitary Protection (CSP) and we would love to be able to offer a UK made Period Poverty Pad for anyone that is willing to try a reusable. We make these pads in the same way as our retail bespoke range, the only difference is that we use a standard fleece backing instead of the usual premium Windpro and our stitching is white.    

1607711088_tcs-eco_pppc_full_stash_and_day_tester_pack-2.jpgWe firmly believe that if you choose to reuse we can end a person’s period poverty for up to 10 years (the same can't be said about disposables). Currently the options available are imported and although they are great they are not amazing for the carbon footprint. We want to tackle this as well as pay a UK living wage to our hard working manufacturing team. 

1607710940_tcs-eco_pppc_full_stash_and_day_tester_pack.jpgWe plan to kickstart this project through Crowdfunder, allowing us to supply a network of organisations that are as passionate about ending period poverty as we are. This money will help to launch our Period Poverty Pad Champions supporting us with funding for raw materials, going towards reducing carbon footprint and paying for our staff to train in a real manufacturing environment whilst earning a living wage.

We understand that not everyone can afford projects like 'buy one give one' so this Crowdfunder means you can donate whatever you are able to. We are very grateful for any help you can give us to drive this project!1607711254_the_pppc_project.jpg
