The bloody truth about single-use menstrual products 20th October 2020 · 2:00 PM (CET)

October 20 @ 14:00 - 16:00 CEST

Evidence of the serious social, economic and environmental impacts that the production, consumption and disposal of single-use menstrual products create is building. As part of #environmenstrualweek 2020, this webinar will examine in greater detail the negative impacts that single-use menstrual products are having today, as well as providing some clear policies and solutions for decision-makers, manufacturers and consumers to address the problem.

This webinar will go into greater depth to answer these key questions:

  • What does the evidence say on the environmental and economic impacts of single-use menstrual items, nappies and wet wipes
  • What is Environmenstrual Week and what are campaigners doing to tackle this issue?
  • What are the biggest health and social issues that occur from using these items?
  • What are the measures and policy recommendations that can help solve this problem?

Speakers  will be:

Alba Cabrera, Head of Studies at Rezero,  Natasha Piette Basheer, Environmenstrual Campaign Manager, Wen (Women’s Environmental Network), Chantal Van den Bossche, Communications Coordinator at Women Engage for a Common Future and Larissa Copello, Moderator – Consumption and Production Campaigner at Zero Waste Europe

Unfortunately, the webinar platform used has a maximum capacity of 100 virtual seats. Therefore, to watch the webinar for free, attendance on Zoom will be done a first-come, first-served basis, meaning that only the first 100 people will be able to join on Zoom. However, if you are not part of the first 100 who join at the start of the webinar, then you can still follow the webinar live on Zero Waste’s YouTube channel.

We will ensure questions posed on our Youtube channel are still relayed to the speakers. The speakers presentations will be available for free in the following days. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
