Period poverty is quite a divisive topic but it is real and despite what many think, it has a wider implication and cost than a $2.00 pack of disposable pads or tampons. How can people help towards period poverty and sustainable period practices? Educate themselves. Whether you menstruate or not, there is a cost to everyone in disposable products. Long-term we’re talking 39.5kgs per person that menstruates, going into landfill. That’s however many tonnes and someone has to absorb that cost – landfill levies are set to increase because we’re so wasteful as a nation. Switching to sustainable solutions (period underwear, cloth pads, menstrual cups) is a no-brainer if you’ve got the ability to do so. It’s harder for those without access to sanitary conditions to use a menstrual cup, but cloth pads and period underwear can bridge that gap in many cases.
