Code Red – Period Products

What is Code Red?

Code Red is an MTU Period Dignity project that tackles period poverty and taboo, and is another step towards equality across MTU. The project provides free sanitary products in 60 locations across the University and is a collaborative project, involving staff, students, and local businesses.

The Code Red bathroom dispensers, stocked with sustainable single-use sanitary products, have been developed by West Cork start-up Riley, who provide an eco-friendly period product subscription service.

Lidl has also come on board to sponsor additional packs of sanitary products available from the SU Office. The SU also has a number of sustainable reusable products such as period underwear and moon cups.

Students are welcome to drop in to collect what they need free of charge.
