So what is a Week of Action?
We are making a big noise this week, together with our sponsors, Thames Water and Anglian Water and a coalition of partners, about all things Period related. You can get involved too, by holding your own event, attending one of the registered events and following and sharing news of the Week of Action on social media.
Here are some of the themes the Week of Action will be covering:
Environment (Water & Sea Life)
Disposal of menstrual products
Reusable and organic biodegrable menstrual products
Smash the Taboo
Whether you are planning to use your voice, by taking to social media or putting a poster in your window at home or work or if you are hosting an event or fundraiser or attending a #PeriodAction event - you will find everything you need in our handy toolkit.
