Frost Products: Championing Menstrual Equity with Free Menstrual Products

In a landmark move towards menstrual equity, federally regulated workplaces in Canada will soon provide free menstrual care products starting December 15, 2023. This significant step aims to address the issue of "period poverty" and ensure access to essential period products for nearly half a million individuals. Frost Products, a leading manufacturer in the field, has been at the forefront of advocating for this movement by producing innovative and convenient solutions to combat period poverty. Our range of free tampon/napkin vendors, such as the code: 618 Push-Button Free Feminine Product Dispenser and the code: 614 Surface Mounted Retail Feminine Napkin Dispenser, have played a crucial role in improving the health and well-being of menstruating individuals.

Menstrual equity is an essential aspect of achieving gender equality and promoting the overall well-being of individuals who may require menstrual products during their workdays, including cisgender women, non-binary individuals, transgender men, and intersex individuals. Access to affordable menstrual care products is a fundamental right that should not be limited by financial constraints. Unfortunately, "period poverty" has been a pervasive issue affecting individuals who struggle to afford or access these vital products. Recognizing this challenge, the Canadian government has taken a significant step forward by amending the Canada Labour Code to ensure that federally regulated workplaces provide free menstrual care products to their employees. These federally regulated workplaces include: Air transportation, Banks, First Nations band councils and Indigenous self-governments, Postal and courier services, Radio and television broadcasting, Parliament, and more. The Canadian government also established the Menstrual Equity Fund in 2022, which aims to help make feminine hygiene products available to people who may have challenges affording them.

Frost's commitment to menstrual equity is exemplified by our line of free tampon/napkin vendors. One of their notable products, the 618 Push Button Free Feminine Product Dispenser, is available in both stainless steel and white painted steel, ensuring durability and professional appearance in various workplace environments. This dispenser offers a user-friendly experience, allowing individuals to access the necessary menstrual care products discreetly and conveniently. Additionally, Frost Products manufactures the code: 614 Surface Mounted Retail Feminine Napkin Dispenser, which further enhances the availability and accessibility of menstrual care products. This dispenser can be easily installed in restrooms, ensuring that individuals have access to the products they need, regardless of their location within a workplace.

The announcement of free menstrual care products in federally regulated workplaces in Canada marks a significant milestone towards achieving menstrual equity. Frost Products, a passionate advocate for this movement, has played a vital role by manufacturing and supplying innovative tampon/napkin vendors that offer easy access to free menstrual care products and are both physically and financially accessible. By championing the cause and actively contributing to the reduction of period poverty, Frost Products has made a profound impact on the health and well-being of menstruating individuals and has provided practical solutions to make these products easily available to individuals in need. With our commitment and dedication to improving the health of menstruating individuals, Frost continues to pave the way towards a more inclusive and equitable society for all.
