Moontime Reusable Kits

The Period Purse takes seriously the issues of our responsibilities being on Indigenous territories. We have partnered with an Indigenous Community to bring 50 Moontime Reusable Kits to young people going through their rite of passage and learning about their moontime (period).

The Period Purse's Moontime Reusable Kits will include:

  • One Menstrual cup

  • Reusable cloth pads

  • Reusable period underwear

  • Reusable bag

  • And other comforting items like: tea, crystal, seeds or a candle

  • A motivational note with an Indigenous artwork and written in their language

Please donate today!
