Join #PeriodsWithoutPlastic - take the pledge to ditch the plastic from your periods.
We will send you some top tips and some money off vouchers from some of our coalition partners, to help you ditch the plastic.
We think that period education should explore all the options and issues around disposable and reusable menstrual products including the health and environmental impacts. Our workshops enables participants to make an informed choice about which menstrual products to use. We can deliver workshops in schools, universities and community groups.
- Do you belong to a community group?
- Do you have links with local schools or colleges?
- Do you have school age children?
Get in touch to book a workshop or to get further information that you can give to schools/community group leaders.
Calling on manufacturers to remove plastic from menstrual products.
Each year 200,000 tonnes of sanitary products including pads, tampons and panty liners are put into landfill in the UK. With around 90% of each sanitary product being plastic, these products are constantly being produced and disposed of and they can be toxic to the environment. We need to stop them being harmful, and stop them having a permanent life on this planet.
