More than 800 million people menstruate daily.

So the Warehouse is doing its part to make period poverty in New Zealand a thing of the past.

Last week, the retail chain announced they would be releasing a line of sanitary products that will sell for a $1, to help fight the issue of period poverty.

Posting to Facebook, the iconic Kiwi brand said: "Making women's hygiene products accessible to all Kiwis with our affordable $1 sanitary pads #FightingPeriodPoverty ❤️"

The products, which are made up of regular pads, super pads and liners, are the company's way to help females who find themselves in a tight situation when it comes to that time of the month.
