It’s finally here!! The sustainable period episode I’ve been wanting to share forever found it’s perfect guest in Polly of Green Indy Blog. As Polly puts it, conversations about menstruation are more than just talking product options, it’s about awareness, education, and options. The more we discuss, the more we have language for what’s happening, the more we can feel normalized, and educated on what’s happening to 50% of the population. The aim of the conversation is to bring awareness to women facing stigmas across the world, as well as share more environmentally friendly product options. PLUS, getting away from the militant idea of what zero waste is and are we justifying the use of plastic with brands like Everland and Madewell doing ‘recycled plastic’ clothing lines? Is this a new form of greenwashing going almost undetected in the ‘low impact/ zero waste’ community? Wondering how menstrual cups work? Let’s let the conversation flow.
Today’s episode is sponsored by Lena Cup, the reusable menstrual cup that gives you a super-comfortable, low-maintenance, zero-waste period. For $5 off your Lena Cup, visit lenacup.com/ and use the code LIVEPLANTED at checkout.
