1. Kind Project

The Kind Project uses design and public spaces to normalize inclusive conversations on menstruation and increase access to period products in the most dignifying ways.

With students, Aimsley McDaniel, Blaise Keasler, Erin Enmark, Haley Tucker, Jaret Sites, Lizzie Cleveland, Stacey Trucks, Melissa Loney, and Nick Hobbs, the UofA Director of Technology, Vincent Edwards, as well as the Fayetteville Public Library, we reimagined the cold coin-operated period products dispenser for a kinder, more resourceful, inclusive, and accessible dispenser for all menstruating folx.

Hello Departures additionally provided more than a year of period products, including sustainable menstrual cups, long-lasting period underswear in inclusive sizes as well as organic tampons, liners, and pads. In addition to the Fayetteville Public Library, you can find these dispensers at the Medium. 

We created a Kind Kit with all the brand assets and guidelines to create your own Kind Project and tools wherever you are. Anyone can use the Kind Kit as is or as a starting point to generate new assets. Feel free to reach out to us to get yours.
