Logo for Sew On Period Care Sew On Period Care

This is a grass roots collective started by Christine Keller (she/her) and joined by Riley Young for people with periods, based in Dunedin, New Zealand. Frustrated by commercial, plastic-laden, mainstream period products, they want to educate about healthier alternatives. The solutions for period care do not need to be bought, but can be made inexpensively by sewing reusable pads ourselves. They encourage people to rethink their period management and consider starting their own sewing groups to make pads for their local communities. They organize activities that get people talking about healthier periods and bladder care to normalize communicating the problems and solutions of this everyday activity. They also aim to provide workshops for local teachers and community leaders to spread the information broadly. They will produce resources online at no cost to anyone to work actively against period poverty. .
