Hey, we are Riley
Also known as Áine, Fiona & Lauren, & we're changing the period game 🩸
Riley began while we were catching up over a glass of wine; don’t all good things happen over wine? Áine got her period and literally scoured the entire house; every bag, every bathroom, every pocket and there wasn’t a pad or tampon to be found.
Of course we were first annoyed that this disrupted our evening because we had to head to the shop for period supplies. We know our periods are coming every month but yet we still always manage to run out so surely there was a better way?
With some tipsy googling, it led us down a shocking discovery path; that many mainstream period products are full of toxins and harmful chemicals. After finding all this out, we felt really compelled to do something about it and that’s how Riley was born.
The fight against period poverty.
Period poverty is a serious injustice all over the world and we're proud to be part of the fight against it. We're working here on the ground in Ireland but also further afield in Kenya. Already we've provided over 60,000 period products and we'll continue to donate as much as we possibly can.
We've partnered with Development Pamoja, an Irish registered charity in Kenya. We donate product regularly and we also sponsor a doctor-led menstruation education programme to almost 3,500 Kenyan students to educate them about their period, which is often a taboo subject in Kenya.
Closer to home, we've partnered with Period Positive Ireland, who are on a mission to end period poverty in Ireland. We work with PPI to donate eco-friendly period products to Homeless Outreach Centres, Direct Provision Centres and Women’s Refuges throughout Ireland.
Our newest charity partner is UK based Bloody Good Period. They’re fighting for menstrual equity and the rights of all people who bleed. We’re working with them to provide period products to those who can’t afford them in the UK. They also provide reproductive health education to those less likely to access it.
Period poverty is a very real issue that affects an estimated 500 million people worldwide. With these partnerships, we're determined to put an end to it, one menstruator at a time.
Providing Riley Period Products in the Workplace
"At AIB we pledge to do more to promote sustainable solutions. As a member of AIB’s Women’s Network, I was proud to sponsor the availability of Riley’s eco-friendly period products free of charge in the female and universal toilets in AIB offices for our people across the country.” - Anne McComish, AIB Ireland
At Riley, we are empowering our community of corporate partners who want assurance that the products they are purchasing are made with sustainable, socially responsible and ethical practices, while also reducing the exposure to users of potentially harmful chemicals and materials. We are proud to supply our award winning products that are independently certified by GOTS, a globally recognised standard. Access to safe and high-quality sustainable period care should be considered a basic necessity that all individuals are entitled to as and when they need them.
We couldn’t be prouder of our community and corporate partners who have joined us on our journey to a more period positive world.
