Dio girls combat plastic waste AND period stigma with creative new product

Period. is a new business created by three year 12 students - Kate Wellington, Phebe Mason and Sarah Young - as part of their involvement in the Young Enterprise Scheme. 

They created wallets made out of 100% repurposed sanitary pad wrappers, with the aim of minimising plastic waste by turning a material that would otherwise be carelessly thrown away to pollute our landfills and oceans, into a sustainable product that can be used for a lifetime. Operating under a buy-one, give-one model, they intend to donate a package of sanitary products to girls and women who otherwise could not afford them in order to combat period poverty. In doing so, they hope to eradicate the stigma surrounding menstruation by having a product which will open up conversations and make a powerful statement.
