Let’s be frank – periods happen. In fact, they happen about once a month to approximately 50% of the 7.5 billion people on earth.

I guess what we’re trying to say is… periods aren’t a big deal and we shouldn’t be ashamed to talk about them!

Why are soap, toilet paper, and hand towels free in washrooms but just-as-necessary menstrual products have you reaching for a loonie? We want to change that!

As of January, you will find FREE (that’s right FREE) tampons and pads across the Humber and Guelph-Humber campuses (for full list of locations check below). No more freaking out when that time of the month sneaks up on you or you don’t have any change in your wallet.
