Topic: Red Tent events – Opening the conversation around menstrual cycles between mothers and daughters, Greening your menstrual cycle

For many years we thought that we only have 2 solutions for our menstrual blood – either tampons or pads. Both options are disposable and at their time, they were the best new method. Women were so happy to not have to deal with their blood. We were taught by society that our blood is not clean, it’s disgusting, something we are not supposed to talk about and with time we have internalized those messages and moved away from our connection to our bodies, our menstrual cycles, our femininity.

Fortunately, there is now a big movement in the world to pay more attention to our bodies, to be mindful of what we put in it and to take better care of the environment. Now we are beginning to understand that those disposable solutions are in fact not so great!

In my talk we will discuss the risks in using disposable menstrual products and we will look at some of the healthier options available on the market. I will sell a few of them at my stall. Menstrual cups will be the highlight of this focus.
