Puberty Education Supplemental Student Sample Kits
“Our goal is to build confidence and empower young girls and women. Solving this problem in a responsible manner is just who we are.” Shallan Ramsey, CEO | Founder
"Growing up can be hard. As young girls, we are taught about the changes happening to our bodies. We are taught about how to use a tampon or a pad. However, what to do with them afterward is often unaddressed. Instinctively, toilet paper became the burial method for most of us. MaskIT is a practical solution for the part of the process that has been overlooked for way too long. My hope is to make things a little easier for girls today than it was for me.”
Shallan Ramsey, CEO | Founder
MaskIT’s Supplemental Puberty Education Program
Most puberty education programs do a wonderful job explaining what’s going on with your changing bodies, what to expect, and how to be best prepared for menstruation; however, the question of what to do with your used menstrual items is a conversation that’s often left out entirely or left to friends, older sisters and parents, all of whom mostly learned from their friends, older sisters and parents. How you dispose of your menstrual items is an important part of menstruation for many reasons and that is what our Supplemental Puberty Education Program is all about.
Reasons to Responsibly Dispose of Menstrual Products
At MaskIT, we have created modern tampon and pad disposal bags that are much safer and more sustainable than the traditional toilet paper wrap. Amongst other reasons, MaskIT was invented to address a major women’s health issue; bloodborne pathogen exposure risks in public restrooms. The inventor of MaskIT, Shallan Ramsey, mother of three daughters, noticed a major discrepancy in the way blood is handled in public restrooms as opposed to everywhere else. The concept that menstrual blood is blood and therefore should be handled with care is at the core of our supplemental puberty education program. With more education, we are confident that we can help prevent unnecessary exposure risk to bloodborne pathogens such as HEP B, HEP C, HIV, MRSA, and more, in public restrooms.
Why use MaskIT:
- Prevents plumbing issues: Never flush used pads or tampons down the toilet. This can result in plumbing issues for your school, businesses or your home.
- Reduce bloodborne exposure risk: MaskIT pouches address a major women's health issue, which is exposure risks to bloodborne pathogens in public restrooms.
- Reducing Toilet Paper Consumption: Reducing toilet paper consumption, when multiplied by the millions can save hundreds of thousands of trees and millions of gallons of water.
- Control odors: Tampon and pad disposal bags are ideal for controlling any odors.
We provide an educational video covering all the reasons why disposing of menstrual items in a responsible way is important, some of the flaws with older methods of disposal, and what the best method of disposal should be. We also provide a small puberty education kit that includes both a large and small MaskIT disposal bag for tampons and pads, an instructional card, a fun period brochure from Be Prepared Period, and other goodies the girls will love.
