Pads for others in Australia
The 'Pad It Forward Program' - supporting Australians at risk of period poverty
Period Poverty is a prevalent issue in Australian communities. At risk groups include people experiencing homelessness, Indigenous communities, school children, people experiencing poverty, and people fleeing domestic violence, among others. At TABOO we want to give customers like you a practical way to support people experiencing, or at risk of period poverty.
Our "Pad It Forward Program" allows you to purchase period products on behalf of someone else, for as little as $7 per month. These products are collected and distributed by TABOO to our charity partners all year round. These partners support people who are at risk of period poverty.

We celebrate the diversity of culture in Australia and appreciate that each of our partners delivers culturally suitable educational programs, alongside the distribution of period products where appropriate. Menstruation is a sacred practice that is celebrated in different ways by different people!
