February 3 @ 19:00 - 20:30

Free

Research shows that people who use period products use more than 11,000 disposable items in their lifetime. Most single use disposable menstrual pads can be made of up to 90% plastic. Bearing in mind the adhesives and packaging, each pad can be the equivalent to around 4 plastic bags, that’s a lot of waste but is there a more sustainable option?

Frome Town Council together with Frome Medical Practice are launching a new project in the new year called Plastic free. Period.

The project starts with a free workshop at Frome Town Hall on Thursday 3rd February from 7pm – 8:30pm, where representatives from Women’s Environmental Network will provide all the information so participants can make informed choices about which menstrual products to use.
