Thank you everyone for joining us on December 2, 2019 to discuss very important issues about period products, their effects on the health of people and the environment, and what difference we can make to minimise the negative impact and ensure the availability of more sustainable, plastic and toxic free options.
The webinar was held by HEJSupport, Women’s Voices for the Earth (WVE), Women’s Environmental Network (WEN), Environmenstrual Coalition and was a part of a broad initiative promoting the use of plastic- and toxic-free disposable and reusable menstrual products.
