“The school project that reached all the way to government agency”
– It is a very special feeling going to and from meetings with the locker on your back. I always think: what if all these women knew that a change in our society is well on its way. Liza Eriksson, one of the founders of RedLocker.
A journey that is changing the world
Redlocker is the solution to a problem that we ourselves experienced many times during our school days. A problem that repetedly made us leave school, miss lessons, bleed through the pants and constantly worry about our period.
When raising the topic, it was soon made clear that we were not the only ones who felt that way. RedLocker was founded in 2018 as a UF company (young entrepreneurship) with the goal of developing a product that would create change for future students at our own high school. RedLocker turned out to be the solution that many had been waiting for.
The very first red machine was developed with the help of the boys in the technology class at the school. Today, that machine is a souvenir in the office, that symbolizes the start of our journey. Much has happened since then, and we are now on a journey that is changing the world, making it a more equal place.
When we founded RedLocker, there was no distribution solution for menstrual care products that anyone could buy and install. We had never seen a solution that would work in all different types of places, in both schools and hotels. So we developed our own solution, that enables any business to offer free menstrual care products in a sustainable and long-term way. RedLocker is not a luxury product, it requires no maintenance and it is far from a “nice to have” product only for the few companies with financial opportunities. RedLocker is a solution for everyone. For everyone to be able to offer free menstrual care products, just like they already offer toilet paper.

I am so enormously proud to be part of a company that takes gender equality seriously! Today we have installed our first dispenser which means that we offer FREE menstrual care products to all our employees on our site in Jönköping! Cheers to SYKES Sweden and cheers to RedLocker who make it possible!

It’s really great that we got through with this at our school. Again, we are deeply grateful that finally all students are given this opportunity.

Our RedLocker is so nice, and it feels great to be part of a workplace that offers this. I think everyone should do it!
