Leave No Woman Without – Brewdog tackles period poverty

Scottish craft beer company, Brewdog, are taking on the social crisis that is period poverty. Teaming up with Hey Girls, they would like to see that no girl (or woman) goes without the products they need. Hey Girls report that 1 in 10 girls in the UK miss school or college because they cannot afford sanitary products, particularly those who are in receipt of free meals.

Period poverty in the UK is real and this was recognised by one of the team members in Brewdog’s head office. One week later, and with Hey Girls onboard, Brewdog kitted out their bathrooms across all of their UK sites with free sanitary products and signed up to the buy one, give one business model.

With the belief that no girl should pay for essential items such as these, Brewdog is doing their bit to tackle period poverty.
