‘Half the planet bleeds – we should never have to compromise our health and wellbeing because of our period’. So says Sherine Maas, Founder of Nuflo, the online retailer of reusable and organic menstruation products, and we’re proud to say, a partner of Friends of Buburi.
NuFlo are supporting us by giving period products that we can distribute to girls in Western Kenya and as they’re reuseable, they’re better for the environment. Sherine’s vision for her business is to bring sustainable organic menstrual choices to girls and women while also supporting those experiencing period poverty. She recognises, like us, that period dignity is essential to gender equality and this is especially important in poor areas where girls and women live in very challenging circumstances. By giving them period products, it allows them to access education and have better life chances.
As a daughter of a NHS nurse and a mother, Sherine has always been aware of the need for good menstrual health and wellbeing and so it’s important to her to be able to offer a wide range of organic and reusable products that can be delivered to your door, enabling us to make safe and healthy choices for our bodies and planet.
We’re looking forward to continuing to work together to support girls in Western Kenya.
