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, Portuguese and Spanish (Castillano)
