DESCRIPTION
Are you thinking about reducing the number of pads/tampons that go into the landfill every month? What options do you have if you want to make a switch to sustainable period products?

Join us in this panel discussion about the different options, along with the pros and cons, that you have to make that sustainable switch. Three women will share their stories of why they made the switch, what they have learned through their experience with various sustainable period products and the significant advantages they achieved!

Attendees will also receive a discount code as an incentive to make the switch to more sustainable period products!

Panel Discussion: 1:30 p.m.

Q&A: 2:15 p.m.

Reep Open House: 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.

Panelists:

Donnique Williams – Communications Manager Reep Green Solutions

Donnique is the Communications Manager at Reep Green Solutions. She has been passionate about living sustainabily for many years and recently started the journey towards a zero waste lifestyle. One day, she realized how much unnecessary waste was produced just for using disposable period products. This pushed her to start using the DivaCup, which not only decreased her contribution to the landfill but also saves her a significant amount of money! She graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University with English and Global Studies degree.

Amanda Baker, On a Zero Waste Journey

In her Zero-Waste journey, Amanda started to think about the impact of not only plastics but also the disposable menstruation products she used. After realizing how the chemicals and materials used in the disposable pads can adversely affect the environment, she started using reusable cotton pads from Party in My Pants and never looked back!

We encourage the use of active transportation such as walking or biking. The house is just off the Iron Horse Trail. It is also easily accessible by GRT bus routes that use Queen and have stops near Mill St. If you drive, please consider carpooling with others you know are attending.
