I think this is an important question but it feels a little embarrassing to talk about periods and menstrual products. How can I start a dialogue?
There is absolutely no shame in feeling that it is difficult or embarrassing to talk about periods. It takes a lot of work and energy to break the taboo that still exists around menstruation in today's society. If you find it difficult to start a dialogue around periods, you can try to find a friend or a teacher who can act together with you! You can talk and at the same time, for example, organize a name collection.
Otherwise, we have good material that you can either email directly to your school management/principal, or print out and drop into their mailbox anonymously. Please take a look at our PDF "Ta Det Vidare" (at the moment only available in Swedish) which you get access to when you fill out the form above.
You don't have to stand out 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 email@example.com 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 to create long-term change in schools is when the students themselves are at the forefront. You are the ones who know your own needs best, have a relationship with your school and are at the top of the principal's priority list.
We have created materials to support you in advocating for free and accessible menstrual products on your own! You can either print a leaflet and leave it in your principal's mailbox, or organize a petition and have a meeting directly with your principal. Of course, you decide yourself how involved you want to be! Once you've taken the first step, make sure your principal gets back to us so we can start implementing the practicalities like (prices, logistics and numbers).
We at RedLocker are of course always here to support you if you need help! You as a student can also write to us directly if you have any questions or if you think we can help you in some other way. You got this!
I have sent you a tip, but nothing happens!
We fully understand your frustration if you have spent a lot of time without anything happening! Once you have done what you can, it is up to the company/school to take the next step. If necessary, we will also contact them. But these things take time, so be patient!

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!
