The sustainable period underwear company has expanded their Thinx for All collection to Walmart stores nationwide in an effort to make affordable period underwear available to everyone.
This month, Thinx for All launches into Walmart stores nationwide. The debut at Walmart retailers and Walmart.com marks a milestone in the feminine care company’s goal to make sustainable, affordable period underwear available for all.
“We are thrilled to partner with Walmart to bring Thinx for All to more Americans,” Maria Molland, CEO of Thinx, told VegOut. “This expansion into the world’s largest retailer helps us accomplish our mission of creating a healthier world by bringing more sustainable and comfortable solutions to our customers.”
Thinx for All Sustainable Period Underwear
Thinx for All sustainable period underwear comes in three styles–brief, bikini, and high waist–all of which are offered in black and gray, as well as in moderate absorbency and super absorbency. The underwear is available in sizes XS-4X and retails for $16.98 per pair.
“We’re excited to bring the mission-driven Thinx for All collection to our customers to offer more choice in their search for reusable and affordable period products,” said Berch Schultz, Vice President of Merchandising at Walmart. “As we continue to expand our assortment of national brands, Thinx fills a gap in our product offering that we know our customers are looking for, at such an incredible value.”
Thinx Gives Back
In addition to launching into Walmart stores, Thinx is providing period products to local organizations across the country, beginning with Arkansas Women’s Outreach, a nonprofit that supplies local homeless women with basic items like period products, wipes, and underwear.
According to a national survey, 1 in 5 students struggle to afford period products or cannot buy them at all, and 84% of youth have either missed class or know someone who has missed class due to inadequate access to period products.
“Period poverty remains a real threat to our communities, with a high percentage of students missing class because of lack of access to period products, fundamentally impacting their education and professional opportunities,” Christine Dillard, President at Arkansas Women’s Outreach, told VegOut. “We are grateful to Thinx for supporting our efforts to help the wellbeing of local people experiencing poverty by providing access to sustainable, comfortable period care products.”
Thinx underwear is now available at 558 Walmart stores nationwide and on Walmart.com.
