Earth Day Tweetchat: Sustainability and Menstruation


On Earth Day, the @kachraproject hosted the inaugural tweetchat as part of the 5 week long period of change campaign on the topic Sustainability and Menstruation. We have many tweetchat discussions on various topics lined up throughout the duration of the campaign. You can find the schedule here.

This post is part of Period Of Change, a 5-week campaign organized by The Kachra Project along with Earth&us that aims to mobilize people (both men and women) around menstrual waste as a starting point to lobby for change in current practices in MH waste management.
