#MostComfortablePeriod #Repost @rusticart [Rustic Story] #2 @theprojectamara Every once in a while you come across something that is beyond words to be described and emotions to be felt. Today, at Rustic Art, we feel immensely proud to have been associated with a group of rebelious teenage girls who are out in the world inspiring and making a change, one menstrual taboo at a time. ——————- _Project Amārā_, a Pune based organisation, is run by five teenagers passionate to spread awareness of sustainable menstrual habits and products. They aim to help reduce the menstrual garbage created in India (9000 tonnes per year!), lift the taboos surrounding periods, and make menstruation a safer, healthier, and more affordable process. They hold sessions in schools, societies, and universities to talk about topics such as: – ancient menstrual stories – menstrual taboos – pads and tampons – sustainable alternatives such as cups and cloth pads Working for the past two years, they have reached out to around 500 women and girls, and are eager to continue this work. – – – – – #sustainableperiod #sustainablemenstruation #MenstrualCup #RusticArt #rusticcup #rusticarrtmenstrualcup #girlswhocare #MenWhoCare #menstruation #period #menstrualperiod #vegan #sustainability #gogreen #greenperiod #gogreen

Thousands of women in labour camps still don’t have access to basic period products. They resort to cardboard, used gauge, wood, and old pads. DO YOUR PART AND HELP DIGNIFY WOMEN DONATE TODAY: UPI: allforasmile@upi PayPal: anjalidalmia@gmail.com (1 pad = ₹100; donate what you can) Logistics organised by Anti-Covid Task Force Why not sanitary pads? They are expensive, unsustainable, and unhealthy. With no garbage collectors working in camps, plastic pads are clogging drains and turning into a health hazard.
