As part of our #periodofchange campaign, we along with our campaign partners will be hosting twitterchats or twitter conversations wherein we will be engaging with people (like yourself) on different topics to understand your perspective on the subject of menstruation, hygiene sustainable alternate menstrual products, waste disposal issues, policy, India laws and it’s management . This is a fantastic opportunity for everyone and anyone to join and participate actively from all facets of life. These are critical from the point of view of your participation and opinions and also since a campaign centered around menstrual waste from the sustainability point of view has perhaps never been explored. We are deeply interested in hearing your opinions, suggestions and feedback regarding this very novel campaign. If you have anything to say to us, please write to
