our vision is for a future where retail creates social change, enabling people to find new, better and more sustainable ways of living…

Plant powered and zero waste – but that’s not all! We don’t only give back to the environment, we give back to society too.

We are proud to support local communities via supply to eco-shops across the UK such as The Refillery, The Good Choice, Filling Good, and Zero Store.

Hey Girls reusable products have a lifespan of 5-10 years, so it’s only logical that the packaging is equally as sustainable. With eco wash bags made from ocean-bound plastic bottles and a reusable cardboard sleeve that opens up to be used as a period tracker for up to 12 months, it’s no wonder we were the first social enterprise to be recognised for an award at COP26 for the ‘Heroes of Net Zero’ award..

Hey you, did you know…
We were the first UK period product manufacture to tackle the issue of water pollution by adding the ’do not flush’ logo to our product wrappers, educating customers on how to responsibly purchase and use their products.

FAQs

Why should we partner with Hey Girls?

Hey Girls is good for society as well as for nature. We offer sustainable and award-winning period products whilst also tackling period poverty. Also, we have experience working with a range of businesses across the UK, providing guidance on period dignity in the workplace.

Why have ‘girls’ in your name when not all people that menstruate identify as female?

Hey Girls was set up by Celia and her two daughters Bec and Kate after experiencing period poverty first hand themselves when Celia was a single mum. Celia used to always greet Kate and Bec by saying ‘hey girls!’ as a term of endearment. It was not intended to be exclusive.

We have been working behind the scenes to become more inclusive and have big plans to ensure we are supporting diversity and equality around period care and education.

We’ve changed our packaging to be more inclusive (removing images of girls from the boxes), widened the messaging to change to ‘people’ rather than ‘girls’ and ‘women’ from our resources and website.

We work very closely with The Diversity Trust and focus groups to create educational resources, lesson plans and campaigns to ensure LGBTQIA+, BME and disability communities are part of everything we do.

We also have extensive educational resources on www.myperiod.org.uk – a website designed to create awareness and education around periods, that has been designed as more of a gender neutral menstrual educational tool.

How do we incorporate reusables into our period dignity campaign?

We offer reusable pants, pads and period cups. When cared for, these can last between 5 and 10 years. Although a higher price point than the disposables, they are better for the environment and more sustainable for your staff. Imagine being able to hand your staff reusables and knowing they may not need to worry about buying disposable period products for 5-10 years? Magic.
