CODE RED : Launching Party By Perfect Fit  (OFFLINE / BALI) 

95% of Indonesian women still use single-use products to manage their period. Unfortunately, there are two biggest concerns of using single-use pads. Firstly, single use pads contain lots of chemicals, including chlorine, phthalates, and fragrance. Secondly, single use pads are made with plastic which is not environmentally friendly, as it needs 500 years to decompose. How come there have been limited solutions to this problem?  
 
Perfect Fit aims to challenge the status quo on menstruation and support people who menstruate to feel better during their period. We built the first Indonesian made period proof underwear and provide period positive information for everyone who menstruates. In this event, Perfect Fit wants to celebrate the launch of their new product, while sharing their message on menstruation and women’s empowerment.  
 
On this event :
  • Introduce Perfect Fit as a start-up and our period-proof underwear innovation;
  • Normalize conversation and debunk the stigma of menstruation; 
  • Honour our womanhood, as people who menstruate.
