Saalt Menstrual Cups, Discs, and Underwear
In April 2023, the ASI Food Pantry launched a pilot
program to provide free reusable menstrual product to Sac State
students. This pilot program was made possible by Student Affairs
grant funding. Our staff taught 286 students how to use, clean,
and store the products through in-person demos, tabling events,
and at the
2023 Sac State Earth Day Sustainability Fair. We
will update this page when we purchase more reusable menstrual
products for distribution.
A big thank you to Saalt, a
certified B-corp that creates sustainable period underwear
and reusable period cups & discs, who was our partner in creating
materials, program planning, and product distribution. More
