Aunt Flow | Columbus, OH

Full-scale solution for businesses and schools interested in sustainably supplying quality tampons and pads for free in bathrooms.


An Aunt Flow product dispenser.

Company description…

Toilet paper is offered in public bathrooms for free, why aren’t tampons and pads? Aunt Flow designed and developed a free-vend menstrual product dispenser with 100% organic cotton tampons and pads so businesses and schools can sustainably offer menstrual products to their employees, students and guests.

I started my company because…

I got my period in public without the supplies I needed. While in distress trying to find a tampon, I thought to myself, “Toilet paper is offered for free in bathrooms outside the home, why aren’t tampons and pads?” I knew I needed to dedicate my life to developing a sustainable solution. I call it, “Changing the world one ‘cycle’ at a time!”

The impact I want my company to have on the world…

I am working towards the day that I can walk into any bathroom outside of the home and feel relieved to see that Aunt Flow products are available.

Top 3 goals for my business are…

  1. See Aunt Flow products available in all bathrooms outside the home.
  2. Build a company culture filled with period positivity that radiates.
  3. Donate 500,000 tampons and pads to menstruators living in poverty in the United States.

Women entrepreneurs are…

Driving real change.

I #EmbraceAmbition because…

It is my ambition that will change the world for menstruators, and I want to do just that.
