Dignity Period in Seattle and Northwest Washington

 

Period poverty is widespread—even in Seattle, which is home to some of the world’s most recognizable corporations and some of the United States’ most affluent people. However, many in our community are struggling to make ends meet.

When it’s hard to pay rent or buy groceries despite having a full-time job, where do you find the money for menstrual hygiene products for yourself or your family? That’s why Dignity Period is excited to expand its efforts in Northwest Washington by establishing partnerships with local organizations.

The cost of living in Seattle is 50% higher than the national average, and the cost of housing is 111% higher than the national average.

Building Local Partnerships

 

Dignity Period can make the most impact in Seattle and Northwest Washington by partnering with organizations that already serve vulnerable populations. We will equip these organizations with reusable, washable menstrual hygiene pads that they can distribute to those in need.

We are actively searching for new partnerships in and around Seattle.

Partner Spotlight: Compass Health

Compass Health is Dignity Period’s first Seattle-area partner. We will provide Compass Health with 5,000 Dignity Period kits to distribute to those in need throughout five counties in Northwest Washington. Each Dignity Period Kit contains 4 washable, reusable pads and an educational packet about menstrual health.

Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities

 

Corporate sponsorships help us accelerate our Seattle programs. Whether it is an event opportunity, an employee giving campaign, or a donation, let’s discuss how we can collaborate. Reach out to tell us more about your organization and areas of interest.

Better for the Earth

 

Our reusable pad kits provide worry-free period coverage for at least 12 months. Because they go into the wash and not into the trash, reusable pads keep the equivalent of up to 240 disposable pads, tampons, or panty-liners per person, per year out of the garbage.

Empowering Women Workers

 

Each reusable menstrual pad is made to our specification by The Collective Thread, our production partner, a woman-led factory in St. Louis, Missouri. They provide job training to women who would otherwise struggle to find employment, empowering them to become economically independent.
