About the products

The products are supplied by Time of the Month (TOTM), a certified B Corporation whose ethos fits well with the University’s commitment to sustainability.

The ethical and sustainable period care products are:

  • Made with certified organic cotton - grown without toxic, synthetic pesticides and using sustainable farming methods. Organic cotton also produces fewer greenhouse gases and uses less water and energy.

  • Designed to reduce waste, with no plastic packaging or applicators - to help reduce the 200,000 tonnes of waste generated every year by menstrual products in the UK.

  • Trademarked vegan - free from animal ingredients since 1990.

TOTM also supports charities such as Endometriosis UK and In Kind Direct, who deliver essential products to those in need.
