About RedLocker

What is RedLocker?

RedLocker exists to create equal and inclusive environments by making free menstrual care products available. We do this through our red machines that provide 100% organic tampons. The unique feature of our machines is that they have a built-in technical lock time, which prevents a person from taking more tampons than necessary.

When the whole world has RedLocker, you will not want to be without it, it is never too late to create change with us!

Who finances RedLocker?

RedLocker is financed by you as a business, so that you can offer free menstrual care products to your employees, students or guests in a long-term and economical way. It is thus free for the user, just as it should be.

How does RedLocker work towards the UN’s global sustainability goals?

We work towards the UN’s sustainability goal 5 – Gender equality and sustainability goal 3 – health and well-being. We do this through our work, which is basically about helping businesses create better conditions for people. To work for increased equality is to work for all people to be able to manage their everyday lives and live their lives without gender restrictions. Health and well-being is largely about all people having the right to good hygiene. A person who is menstruating and does not have access to menstrual care products can not maintain good hygiene and you are instead forced to solve the problem through paper in your panties, or you leave the place you are at. By making menstrual care products available instead, you give all people the right conditions to be able to stay and still feel comfortable.

How big will our consumption of tampons be?

It can be difficult to assess how large the consumption of tampons will be, for the business that has never offered menstrual care products before. There are several different parameters that affect, such as the number of employees who menstruate, how much you are in the office and who uses their own menstrual care products. Several customers have expressed that they feel that consumption is less than they thought it would be before they acquired RedLocker. It will be a smaller consumption because the machine’s locking time controls the consumption so that a person only gets one tampon during a toilet visit.

As a guideline, you can think: A school with 500 students needs 1 refill of 90 tampons approximately every other month.

As a guideline, you can think: A workplace with 50-300 employees needs 1 refill of 90 tampons every the quarter.

Who takes care of the refilling of the machines?

The refill can be done by your janitor or an office manager, in schools the student body usually finds it fun to be responsible for the refill. It takes about 30 seconds to 2 minutes to fill a completely empty machine. The reason as to why RedLocker does not come out and fill the machines is connected with our change work and profiling of the product. We work to achieve similarity between offering toilet paper and in the same way that no one comes out and fills toilet paper, we do not come out and fill menstrual care products.

Can you help with the installation of the machines?

Yes! We help with the installation of the machines in connection with delivery if you want. RedLocker collaborates with a craftsman company that is located throughout the Nordic region and the installation takes a maximum of half an hour. If you want help with the installation, you choose it as a supplement when you place your order, then we will contact you to book a suitable day in connection with delivery.

Can I rent RedLocker for a limited time?

Yes! It is very possible to rent RedLocker for a limited shorter period of time. We offer a seasonal arrangement in the form of a short-term subscription, for those customers who have such a business. For example, a fair, seasonal restaurant or a festival.

Are you interested in such an arrangement? Contact us directly via order@redlocker.se and we will help you get started! This subscription is currently not available to order through our website.

How many machines does our business need?

Since the machine holds 90 tampons, it takes a long time before the machine is empty and you usually have time to discover that it needs to be refilled before then. With that said, you do not really need a machine in every single toilet space. Over time, your employees, students or guests will also learn which toilets have menstrual care products.

Most people decide the amount and location according to what the property looks like, so that employees, students or guests do not have to go from one side of the building to the other to get menstrual care products. We therefore usually recommend that you place a machine next to the most used toilet groups or a machine per floor / department. You can also clarify which toilet has menstrual care products through a nice red sign on the toilet door that can be ordered as an additional product.
