    21. Jacky & Nicole founders of ALLI

    In this episode, I am speaking to Jacky & Nicole founders of ALLI. 

    Alli was born out of a desire to see women’s needs more highly reflected in public spaces. After years of having little to no access to period products when and where they needed them most (in the restroom), Co-Founders Jacky and Nicole decided to channel their frustration into a solution with Alli.

    Alli is a social enterprise that offers female-focused solutions designed to improve the spaces women frequent and address the modern-day woman’s wants and needs surrounding feminine care. Through Alli's smart, touchless feminine product dispenser and touchless disposal unit, Jacky and Nicole aim to increase accessibility to feminine care for all women - by providing solutions when she needs it, where she needs it.

    We discuss one of my FAV topics the stigma of periods, how and why they started their business,  and the importance of women being able to access period products wherever they are. I hope you all enjoy it!
