Hey Girls is very pleased to be a major provider in the Scottish Government’s initiative to provide free sanitary products all pupils and students, announced this week.
Hey Girls is working directly with a number of Scottish councils and universities to provide products as part of the new national scheme that will provide free sanitary products to those at school, college or university.
Hey Girls is supplying sanitary products directly to a number of local authorities including The City of Edinburgh Council, Glasgow City Council, South Lanarkshire Council, West Lothian Council, and Stirling Council, as well as Glasgow Caledonian University.
Celia Hodson, Founder of Hey Girls, said: “We’ve been working really closely with a number of councils and their schools to ensure we’re providing their students with the products they want, and in the delivery method that they want, rather than rolling out a ‘one size to fit all’ approach.
“It’s a really positive thing that these councils are choosing to order a range of products so that people are being given a real choice to choose the item they’re most comfortable in using, but are also given the option of trying out something else, including reusable products which are more sustainable in the long term.”
Hey Girls is also the main provider of menstrual products to Fareshare, who will distribute sanitary products to communities across Scotland via their four distribution centres in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Dundee and Glasgow.
Celia adds: “We are really delighted to be able to provide Hey Girls products to Fareshare in this really important programme. As with all of our sales, we are matching ‘box for box’ every packet ordered, making that money go further to help those in need.”
