About This Class

EVERY MENSTRUATING HUMAN NEEDS TO TAKE THIS CLASS!

Growing up, we learned that periods were a topic to tiptoe around. Even period commercials wanted to keep menstruation as discreet as possible – they wouldn’t utter the word ‘period’ or dare to show red blood on the screen.

Well, we’re breaking the dang stigma for three main reasons. First, periods are gosh darn special and not something anyone should ever feel ashamed about. Second, we deserve to have safe menstrual products that do not contain toxic components. And third, the way we are currently managing our periods is trashing the planet, and there are simple solutions to this.

Consider this your updated sex-ed/biology class with innovative sustainable menstruation alternatives that don’t harm the environment. When we first switched to cloth pads and menstrual cups and period underwear, we SO wish we had had these tutorial videos available about how to choose our products and how in the world to use them. How do I prevent my cloth pad from slipping? How do I measure my cervix to choose my menstrual cup? How the heck do I take out my cup without it hurting like &^%? Is this hand-knit alpaca-wool tampon in the shape of a rocket safe for me to use?!

In this class, we’ll answer all your questions about finding the best low-waste menstrual products for you. And if you experience PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome) or painful periods, you’ll benefit from our section on proven techniques and homemade herbal remedies to support you during menstruation.

To help you in your transition to a safe sustainable menstruation, we’ve gathered the most valuable information for you in this online class: Zero Waste Period.
