Hey Girls to have products stocked at Aberdeen’s supermarkets

A social enterprise which provides sanitary towels for women who cannot afford to buy their own has secured a deal with a major retailer.

Hey Girls is now available on shelves at Asda Bridge of Dee, Aberdeen Beach and Portlethen.

Celia Hodson, founder and CEO at Hey Girls, said: “This is a very exciting opportunity for us and we’re delighted to have launched our sanitary products in Asda Bridge of Dee, Aberdeen Beach and Portlethen.”

The brand continues to tackle period poverty through its Buy One Give One model, so every time a customer buys a packet of towels for themselves, they also pay for one to be donated to someone in the local area who is struggling with these additional costs of living.

It aims to sell one million pads in stores across the country.
