&SISTERS is and always has been about inclusivity, equality and fairness.

Celebrating diversity has always been at the heart of our business. &SISTERS products have been designed by women for females of all colours, sizes, shape, race & colour and we believe in equality and fairness for all.

&SISTERS is working hard to change the conversation around women’s intimate bits by raising awareness, breaking taboos and smashing stigma.

Our Pledges

We pledge to do better for your body

Our 100% cotton period products are made using nothing but 100% Soil Association Certified organic cotton, a natural, hypoallergenic, pH-neutral material that is gentle on the delicate tissues of the vulva. Whether you’re black, white, cisgender, trans or somewhere in between, our period products are designed to make every menstruating person’s period more comfortable.

We pledge to do better for our planet.

We want to do what we can to preserve the earth’s delicate ecosystem for each and every one of its inhabitants, that’s why we’ve made it our mission to tread lightly on the environment, from supporting our growers community in rural areas through to workers rights in the production of our products, right through the distribution network to the time you buy and receive your period products. Periods are natural and we believe that the products used should be too.

We pledge to do better for womankind.

For us, the term ‘womankind’ is meant to elicit a sense of sisterhood amongst women of all skin colours and backgrounds, all people who menstruate and all people who identify as female. From the beginning, we’ve been determined to do what we can to empower womankind, and we’ve vowed to donate 10% of all profits to helping end period poverty in the UK and beyond. But as our business and awareness has grown, we would like to do more to elevate non-white voices and voices within marginalised groups. Going forward, we will be working hard to highlight more black and minorities on our website, blog, social media, collateral and brand collaborations.

UPDATE: June 2020 #BlackLivesMatter – Our response.

We will do better, starting now.

From this moment onward, we will do everything in our power to be both anti-racist and inclusive in all aspects of our business, and we vow to deliver everyone – regardless of skin colour – period products that are better for their body, our planet and womankind.

In light of recent events, our collective awareness has shifted – where some of us have neglected to acknowledge black and minority voices, many of us are now recognising our own privilege and doing what we can to give equal weight to all voices. But this is just the beginning.

While celebrating diversity has always been at the heart of our business, we don’t think our media channels have featured enough content from black creatives, and we’re determined to fix that.

Join us on our mission to end inequality

SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING STATEMENT

Our Pledge

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights that remains a hidden blight on our global society. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. &SISTERS is committed to ensuring that our business practices combat slavery and human trafficking in any form.

Supplier adherence to our values

We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all those in our supply chain comply with our values we continually review all agreements and dealings with suppliers to ensure compliance with anti-slavery and human trafficking measures.

Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking

As part of our measures to identify and mitigate risk we have in place systems to: Ensure our internal employment practices adhere to employment laws and regulation,  identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains, mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains, monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains and protect whistle blowers

We aim to continually monitor and improve our approach to tackling slavery and human trafficking in our business or supply chains.

Supplier Code of Conduct

We have introduced a Supplier Code of Conduct to make it clear that &SISTERS does not condone slavery or human trafficking in any way and to impose a commitment on our suppliers to expect the same high standards from their suppliers

We include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery, whether adults or children in our supplier agreement, and we expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards

We will continue to audit suppliers against the standards we have set.

We know the world has to change. We want to be a part of that change and make a difference. Period.
