It’s our vision to build a brand that makes the world better by empowering every young person to make real, positive change and contribute to a better plant. As part of this vision, RED by Modibodi actively supports causes and organisations close to our heart and that are equally committed to the empowerment of young women across the globe.
GIVE A PAIR
Period poverty is an issue affecting women and girls in Australia and around the world. These women and girls are forced to protect themselves from their monthly period and/or bladder weakness with bits of newspaper, or bulky rags.
While many of us take our options for granted when it comes to managing our period or bladder leaks, homelessness, living in regional communities and being in a more difficult economic situation are just some of the reasons people may find themselves without protection. Modibodi’s Give a Pair Program aims to provide these community members with Modibodi underwear that is sustainable and reusable to empower these women at the times they need it most.
Every purchase helps a woman in need. We donate all returned, opened but sellable stock to charities locally and globally. Through our Give A Pair program, you can help to deliver more pairs; every contribution helps us to get a pair of Modibodi into the hands of women in need.
To date, we have donated over 20,000 pairs of underwear and are committed to donating over 1,000 pairs per month.

SUSTAINABLE PERIOD PROJECT
“It is time to educate about sustainability. Period.”
When it comes to choosing a sanitary product to manage their flow, studies have shown that the majority of menstruators will continue using the same product that they were introduced to during early puberty. With most schools only educating about disposables, it is difficult to see how our war on sanitary waste can be won.
The solution is the Sustainable Period Project, a collaboration with some of Australia’s and New Zealand’s largest sustainable and reusable menstrual companies and artisanal communities.
A World-First project of its kind, it’s all about providing schools and health professionals with a free Resource Kit to facilitate discussions about modern sustainable sanitary options. Each kit contains samples of biodegradable disposable pads, reusable period underpants, reusable cloth pads, menstrual cups, videos and activities that can be used for classroom education for years to come. The Sustainable Period Project aims to provide Resource Kits to all secondary schools by 2020.
