Fighting Period Poverty With Resuable Cups & Pads. These Rotary Women Make it a Movement.
IRAGMHH also seeks to encourage the use of sustainable menstrual products. Women spend a total of 7 years of their life menstruating. 50% of the women world-wide use disposable period products that account for over 150 million pads ending up in landfills daily. The campaign offers reusable cloth pads and reusable cups. These can be used for 2 years and 10 years respectively, eliminating recurring cost and checking pollution as well .
“When you give a woman in a vulnerable condition a menstrual cup, you are giving them freedom, true freedom. You are empowering them because now they do not have to waste any money on sanitary products for more than 10 years and you are also making them conscious about our environment” said Treasurer, Inés Verónica García.
