Menstrual hygiene cuts to the core of many other areas of social and environmental justice globally. Poor menstrual hygiene prevents women accessing education, jobs, and enjoying their lives. One of the biggest reasons this issue seems so hard to solve, is the shame, taboo and stigma that has been doled out on women the world over for menstruating. However we are moving into an age of openness. The conversations are happening, this issue is moving into the spotlight, and people everywhere are realising that it is OK, and in fact essential, to talk openly about menstruation, and it is every menstruator's right to have access to safe, hygienic sanitary options. People are also realising that many of the options we have been sold for so long are not safe, and that there are alternatives available. That's what Sustainable Cycles is all about.
