The THINX Mission
We've solved a taboo issue for 2 billion women and girls around the world with an innovative product and a partnership in the developing world.
Basically, we created a beautiful line of patent-pending, leak+stain resistant underwear that thinks of you every day of the month, even when you're not thinking. We call it THINX.
But we discovered that girls in the developing world are worse off, using things like twigs, rags, plastic bags. As a result, they miss about a week of school a month and end up falling behind and dropping out. Millions of girls are not in school. We partnered with AFRIpads, based in Uganda who make washable, reusable pads. For every pair of THINX underwear purchased, we FUND the production of 7 washable, reusable pads. And it's not a welfare model but an empowerment model. We help subsidize the cost of the pads and make the pads more readily available, helping girls afford them and go back to school while also creating jobs in the local economy. Buy 1 Fund 7.
A beautiful line of leak and stain-resistant underwear including Thong, Cheeky, Hiphugger and LUXE.
