For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.
We believe in empowering women around the world to become productive members of society. That’s why THINX has teamed up with AFRIpads in Uganda to hire local women to produce and manufacture washable, reusable cloth pads. AFRIpads creates more local jobs, giving local women the ability to
go back to work, as well as stay in school. Our mission is to help create a sustainable ecosystem for women around the globe. This is the power of your purchase!
