Hey there!
You're about to enter the THINX Periodical, a blog with *adult-ish* content. Do you want to proceed?

We believe in paying it forward

When you choose underwear by THINX Inc.—THINX, THINX (BTWN), or Icon—you’re doing more than wearing a brand, you’re supporting the mission it was founded on. With your support, we empower *every body* through innovative solutions and social change across our three pillars of giveback work: advocacy, education, and access.

Since day 1, we’ve been committed to supporting people with periods around the globe by advocating for equitable, sustainable policies.

In 2018 we partnered with PERIOD, the largest youth-run nonprofit in the world, to launch our United for Access campaign demanding free and easy access to period products for US students. We’re proud to be the first menstrual hygiene company to work at a grassroots level to shift policy within local communities.

Through our EveryBody program, we work with schools, after-school programs, and nonprofits to empower young people with medically accurate and inclusive information about their changing bodies.

Many young people today lack critical information about how their bodies work and the protections they’re afforded—only 24 states in the US mandate sexual education and just 13 require that information to be medically accurate (plus, only 8 require the curriculum to be unbiased against any race, sex or ethnicity!).

We’re focused on expanding access to vital information that empowers young people with body literacy. During the 2018 - 2019 school year, we’re reaching more than 800 students across 8 partner sites. At the end of 12 weeks, students who participate in EveryBody will be able to advocate for themselves and their needs, explain the science behind puberty and periods, and evaluate how access to menstrual hygiene can change lives.

About our EveryBody program:

  • 12-week puberty education curriculum developed by experienced teachers and healthcare providers, and informed by the students who participate
  • Equips all genders ages 10 - 13 with core knowledge about periods, puberty, and human rights
  • Activity-based and delivered by qualified, trained facilitators
  • It’s effective! Our post-program assessment shows improved student understanding of reproductive anatomy, greater knowledge of how to manage periods, and increased confidence asking questions about puberty.

  • Interested in bringing our education program to your school, afterschool program, or nonprofit organization?

    Period poverty is when a person cannot access the products they need to manage their period, and it affects people around the globe: from Nepal and Uganda to our hometown, New York City.

    Without proper access to products, girls, women, and people with periods miss school, lose work opportunities, and struggle to maintain basic hygiene. Together with our partners we’re committed to expanding access to period products and support services.

  • We make donations of period products to grassroots organizations and local initiatives who ensure distribution.
  • We also provide funding for programs and services that support underserved communities, including survivors of domestic violence, refugees, and people experiencing homelessness.
