Sanitary pads made by Hey Girls are now available to buy at ASDA and Waitrose supermarkets across the UK.
Hey Girls products are available to buy in 80 Waitrose stores and 228 ASDA stores across the UK from Monday 13 August. Sales in branches will be tracked so that Hey Girls will donate the equivalent number of products sold in each branch to charities and organisations local to these shops will benefit from each sale.
The supermarket listings were made possible after a £50,000 investment and mentorship from Big Issue Invest’s Power Up programme, which has helped bolster the social enterprise’s ability to grow.
Celia Hodson, Founder of Hey Girls, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Hey Girls products are now available to buy in stores across the UK. Our thanks go to Big Issue Invest for helping make this possible – we wouldn’t have been able to scale up without their support.”
