Ethically Made Products

The Period Hub strongly believes in its duty to work in the interest of environment and society and hence actively working towards being a Socially Responsible organization. We have developed policies which foster an ethical balance between efforts to strive for profit-making and benefitting society as well.

We ensure that our products are produced by reliable sources which procure their ingredients sustainably.

We also believe in empowering girls and women at the grassroot level, so they can empower their families and be the change catalyst in their own capacities. To bring this change, we work with NGOs to distribute Period Essentials among adolescent girls and women.
