📚📌 Download RedLocker's Community Material

At RedLocker we believe that the most powerful way of making long lasting and impactful change is from the bottom up, when students are at the forefront of the changemaking process. Students are the ones who know their own needs the best, have an established relationship with their school administration, and are at the top of their principal’s priority list. Therefore, we think that when students come into direct contact with their principals, they can advocate for free menstrual products more effectively, their school administration takes their request more seriously and prioritizes the implementation of a solution.

How do I convince my school administration to get RedLocker?

First things first, you have to assess what the situation currently is at your school. Maybe you already have a solution, but it is not working; your school administration has put this issue on the sideburner, or they just fully do not agree with having period products available free of charge. Whatever the reason is, we can guide you on how to move forward with this process. You can read more about different counter-arguments in our Community Playbook!.

How many RedLocker dispensers does my school need?

This totally depends on how many buildings your school has, how big the school grounds are, how many menstruating students would need products at any given point, and how spread out the bathrooms on campus are. Here is a guideline of how many dispensers your school might need based on the amount of students that would be needing menstrual products:

50-100 students: 1-2 dispensers

101-200 students: 3-5 dispensers

201-500 students: 6-8 dispensers

501-800 students: 9-12 dispensers

801-1000 students: 13-15 dispensers

1000+ students: 15-18+ dispensers

When you are assessing the situation at your school and setting up a plan, you do not need to know exactly how many dispensers your school needs, but it might be good to have an idea as you present your arguments to your principal. If the school administration decides to take the next step and install RedLocker in your school, they will be able to talk more in depth about the administrative and logistical side of things with our amazing Sales Team. 📮

How much does it cost for my school to install RedLocker?

Our mission is to support students to succeed in school and perform at their full potential, regardless of the day of the month. At RedLocker we believe that a financial burden should never be the reason why schools decide not to have free and accessible menstrual products available to their students.

Therefore, we provide schools with a generous discount when subscribing to a RedLocker subscription. Feel free to contact us for more information!

I think this is such an important issue, but I find it embarrassing to talk about periods and menstruation in public. How can I get a conversation started with my principal?

There is absolutely no shame in being embarrassed to talk about periods. It takes a lot of work and energy to dismantle the shame and stigma we carry as a society surrounding menstruation. If you find it difficult to start a conversation around it, try finding a friend or a teacher who might be able to be a spokesperson for you! They can do the talking, while you can focus on other things, such as organizing a signature collection.

Otherwise, we have some amazing materials that you can either email directly to your school administration / principal, or print out and leave on their desk anonymously. Take a look at our PDF Ta det vidare available when you join our RedLocker Community.

You do not need to be loud in order to make a change!

I do not speak Swedish, but I would still like to get involved. Do you have the Community Playbook available in English?

Yes, we do have a version of the Community Playbook in English! In order to get access to it, just send us an email at hello@redlocker.se and we will send it over to you as soon as possible. 📕

Can I get support from RedLocker during this process?

At RedLocker we believe that the most powerful way of creating meaningful change in schools is when the students themselves are those at the forefront of the decision-making process. Students are the ones who know their own needs and the ones of their peers the best, have an established relationship with their school administration, and lie at the top of the school principal’s list. Thus, when they are in direct contact with their school administration they are able to more effectively advocate for menstrual products and their school administration is more likely to take the issue seriously, prioritize it, and implement a solution!

We have created materials to support you in advocating for free and accessible menstrual products on your own! From dropping off a pamphlet on your principal’s desk to organizing a signature collection and setting up a meeting with your school administration. You decide! And of course, the RedLocker team is always here to support you if you need any help. Your principal can always contact our Sales Team if they would like to hear more about what we do, prices, logistics, and so on. They can do so by heading over to the Contact Us page via the redlocker.se website.

We’re here to support you throughout your whole journey, so don’t hesitate in reaching out if you need help! You got this!
