Period for Good is a new “time of the month” box that gives you a chance to “do good” just by buying your monthly essentials. Every month, Period for Good donates 25% of their profits to one of six carefully chosen charities (you decide which charity you’d like your portion to support!).
Period for Good boxes are totally customizable. You can choose from tampons, pads, or a mix of both. They have a variety of popular brands, as well as organic. If they don’t carry what you’re looking for, just send them a note to let them know. Every box comes with the pads/tampons of your choice, as well as cramp tabs, chocolate, and “something special”. Boxes range from $19 to $29, depending on how many supplies you need. Shipping is always included.
I was recently sent a Period for Good box for review, so let’s see what was inside!
The goods were sent in a plain, nondescript brown box. Nothing that screamed “there’s feminine hygiene products in here!”. 😉
Everything was wrapped in pretty blue & green tissue paper with a handful of colorful tinsel(?). Cute.
There was a nice little “welcome” note that doubled as an info card.
On the back of the card was some information about the charity I chose to support — the Best Friends Animal Society. They help care for animals in need, such as this sweet blind kitty, Miss Dot.
Yellow Chevron Fabric Basket by Willowtreedecor – This is a handmade fabric basket to keep your monthly “supplies” in. It’s a cute yellow chevron print, chosen because of the healing properties that the color yellow has in relation to the stomach region (according to color therapy). The info card notes that these can be purchased on etsy, but a Google search kept telling me that the shop/url didn’t exist. 🙁
Satin Chevron Pouch – This little drawstring pouch was included to discreetly hold your tampons while on the go. I don’t think the hot pink print holds any healing powers… They just chose it cos it’s cute. 😉
Cramp Tabs – Pretty self-explanatory. Cramps, be gone!
Witor’s Italian Pralines – Four assorted flavors of these Italian pralines were included. I passed them along to my mom and she thought they were great.
The Essentials – I chose the $19 “Little” package, so I received 17 Regular Thin Always pads and 3 Overnight pads. This is more than enough to get me through the month.
I was pretty happy with my introduction to the Period for Good box. I love the cute chevron fabric basket, the tea and cramp tabs are nice to have, and they had the brand of pads that I normally buy. Plus, I helped care for a blind kitty. 🙂
