I’m not sure how familiar you are with this issue in our country, but the United Nation has declared access to menstrual hygiene products a public health, gender equality and human rights issue. The inability to afford or manage menstruation should not hold anyone back from educational opportunities and full societal participation. Emmy Hancock is 25 years old. She grew up in Dallas and currently lives there now. She’s very passionate about improving menstrual health inequity and recently founded and launched Oluna – a social impact fashion company.
For every pair of pants sold, Oluna strives to bring attention to menstrual health inequity by donating a year’s supply of period products to an American in need. As of now, Oluna will initially distribute these feminine products to local homeless shelters in Dallas – specifically Interfaith Family Services, Promise House, 24 Hour Club, Hope’s Door New Beginning, Union Gospel Mission Faith, Our Calling, Genesis Women’s Shelter, and The Bridge: Homeless Recovery Center.
The relaxed and stylish pants are available in Black, Olive and Multi-Colored Stripes (more options to come this spring) and range from $64 to $69. The soft fabric and stretch fit will keep you grooving from the workday (or work from home day!) to the weekend. With the holiday season quickly approaching, these pants make the perfect gift for fashionable family and friends while giving the gift of social impact at the same time.
These pants are SO soft and feel so nice. Oluna even sends along a Spotify playlist for you to enjoy with your new comfortable and airy pants, as well as a matching head band.
But more than that, I love the mission behind Oluna. One thing of note for the very petite the inseam is pretty long and with the style of the split leg a little difficult to hem. But ladies check them out, considering the extra gift that goes to the community when a pair is purchased, even if they aren’t for you personally give them as a gift! They are worth it and for the recipient of the period products… literally life changing!
I highly recommend Oluna pants for a gift for yourself or a loved one this holiday season, and in purchasing a pair you’ll also be giving a gift to another woman in need.
