How period care brands are responding to Florida bill that would restrict sex education

Its caption described what the bill would do, then noted that “sexual education is already subpar, to say the least, in this country and this bill will make it even worse,” and that “even if a student gets their period before 6th grade, they would be prohibited from having a conversation about it.”

August, which sells tampons and pads, posted about the bill on multiple social media platforms.

On Geneva, a messaging app for communities and groups, August is hosting conversations about the bill with its roughly 400 Geneva group members, some of whom are Florida-based, according to August CEO and co-founder Nadya Okamoto.

The conversations on Geneva drive home the idea that “we’re about more than just selling tampons and pads,” according to Okamoto.
