Period Equity refers to equal access to hygiene products, but also to education about reproductive health. 

The most commonly recognized definition refers to the affordability, accessibility and safety of menstrual products.

But we know it’s more than that. In fact, the definition is growing and changing, as voices from all over the world continue the conversation about period health, product access, affordability, education and safety. Education towards period health starts from knowing & understanding the body and being aware about various parts of the body. It is very important for menstruators to understand the why behind menstruation.

As we combat period poverty’s consequences, we must also think of the environmental impact of period products to avoid adding another burden to disenfranchised communities. Saathi’s goal is period equity with the planet in mind. Tackling the taboo and providing free period products is only part of the equation. To truly help people and put in place a sustainable, viable solution, we must also focus on increasing the accessibility and affordability of natural and organic period products that don’t cause environmental harm. The waste management in underserved communities & rural areas are very broken which leads to ending up all the waste in the landfills destroying the quality of soil, increasing the CO2 emission and destroying even the quality of life.
