And integrity, morals, ethics, fairness, humility, empathy, compassion, authentic human emotion + connection, chivalry, understanding, family values, respect for all people, maturity + true leadership. ⠀
So. Much. ⠀

Menstrual hygiene products are not commonly donated to homeless shelters, but there is clearly a demand. This is where #happyperiod comes into play. Homeless people of Syracuse are one of the populations we will distribute donations to.

NO trash can in the bathroom? The struggle is real when you are on your period! We wrap the tampon in toilet paper, put it in our purse until we find a trash can!!! We've all been there.....What about you? #odeevacares #odeeva #pimpyourbathroom #buyatrashcan

It's exactly as easy as this ☝🏽👌🏽🔝

We shouldn’t be afraid to be happy and enjoy life, not focusing on what people say to make you happy. Instead focus on what truly makes you happy ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Be you because you rock! 🎉

You have to deal with your period every month anyway. Wouldn't you rather do it in a healthy, safe, eco-friendly and cost-effective way?

Here are top 5 benefits of a menstrual cup!

Another monthly subscription box from @pinkparcel has arrived! I never thought I would get excited about my period, but this little box contains all my period essentials plus some additional treats like luxury beauty products (and even some sweets) to help me get through those days of the month (I need an extra dose of sweets and TLC during those days). With the code MASSIEL20 you can get 20% off your first Pink Parcel 💕 #PinkParcel #Ad

Do things that scare you. And watch how well you grow! 🌱

I've been stepping out of my comfort zone a lot lately. And by lately I mean like a month, so it's still very new! I just decided to stop saying no to things that scare me for silly reasons. Like going out to eat alone at a restaurant with two kids, asking for a strangers phone number because you really like their vibe or going to an event alone! All things that I wouldn't have even imagined just six weeks ago! .
.
I realize for many people these aren't a big deal, but for a strongly rooted introvert like me-it's everything. I would be a liar if I didn't tell you I was proud of myself! .
.
My comfort zone is getting a little bit bigger and with it, my confidence and openness to opportunity!
.

What have you done lately that scared you? How did it help you to grow?

Menstruating shouldn't contribute to plastic pollution. Period.
💖💖💖
We are delighted to now be stocking Honour Your Flow sanitary pads so you can have a plastic-free period.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Many disposable sanitary products contain a whole lot of plastic. Some sanitary pads are made up of 90% plastic, which is about the same amount as four carrier bags 😲
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Honour Your Flow sanitary pads are almost identical to their disposable counterparts but the natural fabrics are much more comfortable against your skin. They are also safer. Tampons and sanitary pads contain synthetic substances and chemicals which are being used in a very absorbent part of our body.
Honour Your Flow pads are completely washable, reusable and will last for years. Oh and they are very pretty too 💖😊

Il y a pas mal de choses que l'on souhaite transmettre à sa fille et parmi ces choses-là, il y a des valeurs plus importantes que d'autres pour MÏU :
👉🏻 Faire du bien à son corps, avec des produits toujours le plus naturels possibles
👉🏻 Protéger la planète car sans elle, rien n'est possible 🌎
👉🏻 Être remplie de bienveillance envers les personnes qui ne pensent pas forcément comme nous car un jour on l'espère, elle s'éveilleront elles aussi 😍
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
À travers le MÏNOU crew, MÏU cherche à véhiculer des valeurs qui lui sont chères, on espère que vous aussi, vous les partagez (et sinon, on est bienveillantes hein 😇)

Menstruation is only women's issue? No all human being has to care of menstruation problems!! Tieut cup follows this philosophy and gender equality!! #tieutcup #menstrualcup #menstrualcycle #menstrualhealth #menstrualhygiene #menstruation #menstruationmatters #genderequality

@Regrann from @redisthenewgreen_ - In our previous posts we discussed as to how menstrual cups are cost effective and also very eco-friendly.
Today we talk about the health benefits of using a cup.
Menstrual cups are free from toxic chemicals, artificial perfumes, dioxins, pesticides and other harmful substances. There are studies showing that such chemicals are carcinogenic and directly linked to some fatal cases.
Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) from menstrual cups are extremely rare, almost none. Whereas, tampons have many reported cases of TSS.
Capacity of menstrual cup is 25-30 ml and that of a tampon is just about 10ml. Also on that note, how much do you think a woman bleeds on periods? Awaiting your answers!

Here is hoping that all of you are convinced now so as to switch on to mensrual cups. We understand the hesitation but hope you can overcome it! .

I agree! @Regrann from @goauntflow - Who else is sick of discretely carrying around menstrual products in their bag? 🙄 Businesses and schools offering freely-accessible tampons and pads is the WAY TO GO 👊 Let’s face it: sometimes we are caught off guard and forget to bring an emergency product. It happens! 🤷‍♀️ That does NOT mean employees, students and patrons should have to leave to go find or buy a tampon 🤦‍♀️ Know a business or school that needs to stock its bathrooms with products? Head to goauntflow.com and let’s make it happen 😏

Another such superhero bringing memstrual taboos to rest and educating the young is Aditi Gupta, founder of Menstrupedia.
Here is an excerpt for a TIMES article,
The comic, aimed at girls ages 9 and above, has since been integrated into the curriculum of 70 schools across India and translated into 11 languages. “Myth breaking and period positivity are our strategies, and we wanted to make it a comic book because it’s inclusive,” Gupta says, referring to the book’s storylines that were adapted from real-life experiences. “We wanted to do it in a positive and matter-of-fact way to debunk misconceptions, and so that parents and teachers would be comfortable using it. Girls can read it and say, ‘Oh, this happened to me too!’” Both the online and comic book content has been reviewed by medical professionals to ensure its accuracy, an important consideration given that 88% of girls and women in India who menstruate use unsafe materials.
