The “enviro-menstrual” impact - the increasing stress that sanitary wear is having on the environment.
Here at Secret Whispers we are setting our focus on all things; females, periods, & menstrual cups this month.
It’s Stress Awareness Month in April. “Stress” can be interpreted in many different ways, and we could certainly advocate a few. However, the area of stress we would like to highlight is the stress that our everyday essential period products (that we don't think twice about), are having on our environment!
This week is Sexual Abuse and Sexual Violence Awareness Week and Secret Whispers wants to raise awareness as well as highlight how they help a local charity, and how you can help, too.
For the last few months, I have been working with The Zinthiya Trust, a Leicester based charity, which helps vulnerable people, who have suffered from abuse, violence and poverty. Whilst their services are open to everyone, a big part of the charity also helps women and girls, who have been subjected to domestic abuse, honour-based violence & FGM (female genital mutilation). Many of those victims face adverse circumstances and live in dire circumstances and severe poverty, before they get help and support from The Zinthiya Trust.
