Why We Love Them
Have a plastic-free period with this reusable menstrual cup! The fabulous products from Hey Girls are not only better for the environment, they are also better for your health. And not only that! The 'Buy One Give One' scheme means your purchase is helping to end period poverty for someone in need, right here in the UK.
Disposable period products account for 200,000 tonnes of waste per year, with 1.5-2 billion period products flushed down the toilet annually. Commercial pads and tampons contain up to 90% plastic, meaning they will take centuries to biodegrade. Hey Girls work closely with manufacturers to ensure all their products are sustainable. In 2019, they developed a range of Applicator Tampons with sugar-cane bio-based applicators. In addition to their sustainable disposable products, Hey Girls also makes reusable period products – menstrual cups and reusable pads. These products have a typical life of 5-10 years, reducing waste and also supporting their goals to end period poverty as one purchase (or donation) lasts for several years.
In an industry that has never been required to disclose its product’s ingredients or test their safety, Hey Girls knew that there was a better way to communicate with their customers: a commitment to health and transparency. So every Hey Girls product is made with pure, ethically sourced ingredients. When you buy from Hey Girls, you are not only protecting your own health, but also the health of the amazing workers’ that made your products, their human rights and our global environment.
At Hey Girls we know that you girls and young women are all powerful individuals, care about your health, are passionate about the environment and want to make a difference.
That’s why we girls created Hey Girls – to offer you a no leak, super comfy, chlorine and bleach free, environmentally friendly product that tackles period poverty in the UK. How? Well that’s simple – all the profits from our Buy One Give One products go directly to help girls and young women in need – no fat cat shareholders taking a payout. So that means for every box you buy we give a box away- yep just that straightforward.
Hey Girls was founded by myself and my daughters Becky and Kate, with the philosophy that girls and young women should never have to compromise their wellbeing or their health. Having been a single parent I understand firsthand the financial strain of buying period protection when struggling to survive on benefits. The situation for women just like me hasn’t changed in twenty years, which is why we set-up Hey Girls.
We seek to enrich the lives of girls and young women in the UK by exercising social and ethical responsibility in every aspect of our work—from where we source our products through to our supply chain, and the way we run our social business.
