Free a Girl India aims to fight against human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of children. We do this by raising awareness about the problem of child prostitution and the impunity of offenders of child prostitution. We believe there is a need to change the conversation, to mobilise society to rally behind the girls that have fallen victim to this crime, and to demand justice. It is important to break the silence in many countries about child prostitution and the need to prosecute the offenders.

Inspiration

The Design Process

New patent pending panties to solve a worldwide problem one in three women have. A 21st century solution for 21st century women. No disposable products means no more landfill waste.

‘Don’t let a trickle stop your giggle’

That’s the ethos behind a life-changing new British product on its way to liberating millions of women from sensitive bladder anxiety.

Giggle Knickers are super-soft, washable, high quality cotton knickers with an absorbent, hi-tech protective panel that gives the security of a pad without the bulk, bulge or bother of disposal.

Designed by award-winning online fashion retailer and design director, Judith Balcazar, Giggle Knickers are the result of a personal quest to find a stylish, comfortable and environmentally-friendly solution to the accidental leaks of stress incontinence.

As the condition, which has a host of triggers including cystitis, childbirth and hysterectomy, affects a massive 1 in 3 women Judith assumed finding wearable, washable knickers at a reasonable price would be a given. Instead she discovered a glaring gap in the market.

So, unsurprisingly for the design director of a company hailed by the Daily Telegraph as “the thinking women’s label,” Judith decided to make them herself.

Enlisting the support of best friend Anne Davidson, the dynamic duo summoned vast reserves of determination, ingenuity and great good humour on their creative journey to the holy grail of gussets. It led them, to everywhere from the motor industry to the technology of micro fibres. “Although the fabrics were high tech, in the beginning the testing was ‘kitchen sink’,” laughs Judith, remembering the counters and shelves of her kitchen festooned with over 80 fabric combinations.

Judith and Anne’s perseverance and passion for their project paid off and the result is Giggle Knickers patent pending 4 layer core which wicks away leaks and protects clothing. Fully machine washable, the knickers are set to do their bit for the environment too – as an alternative to disposable pads, currently piling into landfill sites at a rate approaching a million tonnes a year. It’s a win win result for women and the environment.

Giggle Knickers are  produced in sizes to fit all body shapes from XS to XL, at a price of £12.99. The flattering design is available in black with future offerings in different colours. Customers will have a say in what styles they want to see in future collections.

Co-Founder & Creator

Company partners Anne and Judith met over 20 years ago, both having led different lives; Anne as a teacher and working mother of five and Judith having launched London based fashion company Wall Luxury Essentials Limited. (A well know women’s fashion catalogue that won the 2013, 2014 and 2016 ECMOD award for best Luxury catalogue and was mentioned in the House of Lords as one of Britain’s ethical brands.)

With their children having flown the nest and a lifetime of experience behind them, the pair chose to embark on a journey to solve a problem that affects millions of women around the world. Giggle Knickers Ltd was developed to create a discreet, eco-friendly and feminine looking pair of washable knickers. The knickers are designed to provide an alternative to disposable pads, this reduces the amount of sanitary waste and its related waste disposal problem and de-stigmatises the ‘giggle’ problem that affects over 3 million women in the UK alone.

Reducing Landfill & Protecting Our Seas

Designed To Be Eco-Friendly

In the UK alone, we produce up to 860,000 tonnes of absorbent hygiene products a year. As a business we take responsibility for our footprint on the planet, that’s why we have created a truly eco-friendly choice for our customers.

We are also really proud of the fact that all our packaging can be recycled and to be working with Duo Plastics who have developed the world’s first carbon-neutral mailing bag. Our bags are made from a waste product from oil, it’s the same stuff that coats many medicines to make them easier to swallow! Please recycle our packaging.

Our Planet

A Human Problem

According to Future Market insights the amount of hygiene waste is going to rise globally 6-7% per year. In Western countries with an ageing population this figure is likely to be much higher.

As many as 1 in 3 adults and more than 80% of them women, have bladder control issues, the Urology Care Foundation says.

Research by Always Discreet reveals that more than 3.5 million women in Britain have the condition that can range from mild bladder sensitivity to full blown incontinence.

National Geographic recently reported there is 5.25 trillion pieces of trash in the oceans and counting, without something being done growth of this kind would only compound an ever expanding problem.

Disposable products are typically made with a combination of plastics, cotton, synthetic fibres and wood pulp. These materials are then bleached with chlorine dioxide, creating polluting, harmful and bio-accumulative byproducts like dioxin, which not only end up in the environment, but also remain in our bodies for decades. Add other synthetic chemicals and artificial fragrances to the mix, and you’ve got a recipe for side effects like allergic reactions, hormone disruption, reproductive and gynaecological disorders like endometriosis.

Small Company, BIG ideas

Our Ethical Promise

Giggle Knickers provides a simple solution to the problems of waste disposal, whilst at the same time reduces the stigma surrounding light incontinence problems.

Giggle Knickers is an everyday pair of knickers that is undetectable in an underwear drawer from any other pair of knickers. Because they are made out of responsibly sourced material and are machine washable, we have neatly cut out the current waste problem within our own industries.

Not satisfied with just being eco-freindly; Giggle Knickers does not want any of our production to be made at the expense of others.
