Hello wonderful human,
We are Floco! Floco (pronounced flow-co) are a community of people who flow. Floco was founded by 2 young women; Mhairi Cochrane and Alison Wood in 2018 in Edinburgh. Mhairi and Alison are passionate about equality, education and innovation with compassion to give everyone the best life the can.
Where did Floco begin?
While still at university, our co-founder Alison Wood was conducting research in rural Kenya working closely with a local charity. Through this research she discovered that many young students were forced to exchange sex for access to period products. Sadly as it turns out, many girls all over the world face this problem, just to ensure they don’t miss out on school every month, valuing the freedom that their education could buy them above all else. Since then we have been committed to fighting period inequality. No one should have to make this kind of choice. Floco now work around the world increasing access to period products and period education.
We have designed high quality, discreet and comfy reusable period pads. Floco's pads are an absolute game-changer, using ultra absorbent technical materials to keep you feeling dry and secure.
💭 Education to Empower
Floco has created an education programme focusing on periods, puberty and gender stereotypes that is inclusive and engaging. and aims to encourage young people to pick apart stereotypes and nurtures a culture of understanding and compassion
💛 Fighting period poverty
Floco are dedicated to helping people who flow live the best life they can. So when you buy from Floco they are able to support women around the world. Their initiatives increase access to period products and education.
Have the best period you can.
They are so much comfier than disposable pads - I could barely tell I was wearing one as they are very thin and absorb the blood really well so it doesn't feel soggy. They are also super absorbent, so I didn't need to change them as frequently
"The lessons were dynamic, fun and informative ... they used lots of props, ice breakers, group activities and were excellent at helping the pupils feel more confident in discussing puberty, periods, period poverty and different products"
It is comfortable and easy to wear. I would tell my friends to use it as you don't need to stress about money and will always be sorted.
