We had the good fortune of connecting with Claire Coder and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Claire, how does your business help the community?
Aunt Flow’s mission is to ensure EVERYONE has access to quality period products. We help businesses and schools easily implement inclusive, sustainable period product programs. After all, toilet paper is offered for free, why aren’t tampons and pads? We’re providing the solution to the problem menstruators have been dealing with for YEARS. Who carries quarters around, anyway? That’s why we’re dedicated to helping people – PERIOD!

What should our readers know about your business?
I like to say I’ve always been an entrepreneur. Before I built Aunt Flow, I started a button company that helped me understand the fundamentals of business. That being said, “There’s a Badge for That” was a high school business. I am on a mission to change the WORLD with Aunt Flow. Yet, changing the world is not easy and requires a ton of risk. The first risk I took was leaving The Ohio State University after a single semester. I went all in, and it was just the start.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
As a proud partner of the Phoenix Mercury, I’d absolutely take people to the Footprint Center to catch a game. Of course, I’d want to show off the Aunt Flow period product dispensers installed in the bathrooms all over the arena, but the game-day experience is something I’d recommend for everyone! And if you’re looking to stick around that part of Phoenix, The Kimpton hotel is right across the street from Footprint Center and nearby is Arrogant Butcher – a fantastic restaurant with delicious vegetarian options.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My shoutout goes to the entire Aunt Flow team! Building such a dedicated and engaged team has been one of the proudest highlights of my career, thus far. Each and every team member plays such an integral role in helping to further our mission of making the world better for people with periods.
