The average women will menstruate once a month, for roughly 35 to 40 years of her life. That’s approximately 3000 days—more than 8 years—of periods during her lifetime. At any given time, 800 million women and youth worldwide are menstruating. (source WaterAid)
Imagine how much single-use material can be avoided by using reusable materials!
The vast majority of single-use period products end up littered or incinerated, with devastating impact on our planet, polluting marine environment and fresh water sources, leaching in non-sanitary landfills, damaging our health and causing biodiversity loss. Production of single-use plastics has an impact on climate.
This is our new poster to promote reusable products during period, available in Burmese, Dutch, English, French, Greek, Indonesian, Korean, Malagasy and Portuguese – Posters in other languages will be published soon !
