It's time for change,
Menstrual products are a basic human right, PERIOD. That’s why at TAF we are donating 50% of our profits to help bring menstrual products to those of us who are most at need.
We know stats talk, so here they are.
800,000 menstruators are currently living in period poverty every single day.
In 2016, a study by human rights watch found that an estimated 1 in 10 girls across Africa miss school during menstruation.
Menstruator can miss up to 20% of their school year due to period poverty and the shame associated with it.
If every menstruator had the ability to go to school or work, equipped with the proper menstrual education and access to products we normally take for granted, then they have a real opportunity for a bright future.
The Cova Project is an amazing Aussie charity providing both menstrual health education and products to menstruators across the globe, who do not have access to either due to lack of financial resources or access to basic needs.
We have so much love for what the Cova Project do, because they saw a prevalent problem that had a simple solution and decided to do something about it, by providing menstrual cups and partnering with local communities to provide menstrual health education tailored to cultural norms and languages.
In the two years COVA has been operating they have provided over 6,000 womxn with menstrual cups that will last them up to 10 years.
(We use the term ‘womxn’ to be inclusive of trans and nonbinary people)
We believe transparency and open conversations are important, not just in life but also in business. That’s why we aim to be as open as possible on not just how much of your hard-earned money is donated from each purchase, but also how that money is used to promote change in the world. After we complete our first quarter of business will we be providing a break down on the numbers for everyone to see, which we will then update annually.
With each purchase we will donate 50% of our profits (after all those boring business expenses are taking care of) to the COVA project.
What about the other 50% of the profits? Well ask anyone who has ran a business before, and they will tell you it is hard! It’s survival of the fittest out there (more than 60% of small business’ fail in their first 3 years of operation).
So, for our business to grow so we can continue to kick period poverty’s butt, we use this other 50% to grow the business and thrive.
Here we pay for all our essential costs like the wine, keeping the lights on, packaging etc. Once all that's taken care of we get to the PROFITS!
The juicy party. Here we straight up donate 50% of everything that's left after paying the essentials to COVA. We also keep some profits to help market and grow our business.
