UNBC pilot project to end period poverty, install free menstrual product dispensers

March 16, 2021
The University of Northern British Columbia is piloting a project to end period poverty by installing free menstrual product dispensers in high-traffic campus washrooms. The pilot program, which is spearheaded by several student organizations, will provide eco-friendly products in select washrooms to give menstruating people the tools they need to attend campus. “We don’t want people to have to choose between coming to class or staying home because they don’t have proper products to make their day comfortable and sanitary,” said UNBC Social Work student Emily Erickson. “Everyone has the right to feel clean and comfortable.” UNBC | CBC (BC)
