Yay! Period for Good has arrived! I swear, I say this every month, but they know my cycle better than I do. I love the service, the little extra treats, and of course, the fact that I get to do some good each month.
Not familiar with Period for Good? Period for Good is a monthly time of the month subscription box. There are a few others out there that provide supplies, a treat, and a small gift to get you through that rough patch we all hate so much.
Period for Good subscriptions start at 19 dollars a month and are pretty customizable. They offer 4 different basic boxes but you can add pads or tampons to any of those boxes for 2 bucks. Don’t see your favorite brand? Send them an email! Most likely they can find it for you!
Oh! And I almost forgot to mention the “good” part of Period for Good. 20% of the box price goes directly to a charity of your choice. They sponsor 6 charities plus a “U-Pick” option where subscribers can request a charity of the month. You can learn more about the selected charities by clicking here. I selected Tripp Halstead, but all of these charities are pretty amazing.
Period for Good ships via USPS. They don’t provide tracking info, but boxes typically arrive 1-2 weeks before your start date. When you sign up, you’ll enter all of your cycle info and they take care of the rest.
Period for Good doesn’t offer a traditional info card but more of a letter from the founder. The letter explains why they selected the products in your box. The products selected are generally picked from small women run businesses, most of which also “do good.” On the back, there’s an update from your charity of choice.
First look! Socks?! I love socks! There really isn’t many spoilers on Period for Good, so generally I’m totally surprised by this box.
This month’s box includes 2 pairs of socks. There’s a pair of adorable Christmas cat socks and a pair of warm, oversized slipper style socks for cold nights at home. I have a love hate relationship with the second pair of socks. They are warm and cozy (all positives) but if you even attempt to walk to the bathroom in these socks, they will slip down and provide JUST enough fabric around your toes to cause a trip and fall accident.
Period for Good always includes a little treat. Usually it’s chocolate, sometimes it’s chocolate AND tea.
They also provide cramp tabs. In my experience, these work a little better than Advil.
And then, the most important part, but probably the least exciting! They don’t offer “sealed boxes,” but honestly, it’s nothing I’m worried about, and you shouldn’t be either.
And that’s this month’s Period for Good box! I love the socks! Who doesn’t love new socks?!
