Those looking for a comfortable yet discreet reusable period pad need look no further. Floco’s innovative products are more comfortable, discreet and absorbent than traditional disposable pads. On top of being a more efficient pad all around, you can also feel safe in the knowledge that you’re helping to reduce the carbon emissions created by disposable pads by up to 90%. 

Floco (pronounced flow-co) is a community for people who flow. Founded by Alison Wood and Mhairi Cochrane in 2018, Floco is fed up with period inequality. They are on a mission to ensure everyone has the best period they can. They are committed to equality, progress and smashing the glass ceiling through game-changing innovation.

Floco does this in three ways. Firstly, designing high-quality period products because why should people who flow put up with anything else? Secondly, through working with people around the world increasing access to period products in countries where they are currently much less available with real consequences for women in those communities. Finally, through an education programme that is encouraging young people to pick apart the stereotypes and stigma that surrounds periods and puberty, so they can openly learn.

Floco is on a mission to ensure everyone can have the best period they can. For every pack that Floco sells, they sponsor another to people in need around the world.
