You might think that periods are a pain in the ass, what with the cramping, bloating, and all that money you've got to spend on tampons and pads (which end up filling your trash can or getting dumped into a landfill). Now imagine having to miss days of school or work because you didn’t have access to, or couldn’t afford, sanitary products at all. With the variety of products we have to help us deal with our monthlies, that's pretty hard to imagine but it’s the reality for many young girls and women in developing countries around the world. What if you could avoid giving more money to Big Tampon, and help a girl stay in school during her period at the same time? That's where the Green Diva Challenge comes in.
Here's how it works:
Try Lunapads or The DivaCup, and use the promo code BUSTCHALLENGE to save 15% when you spend $35 at Lunapads.com. To sweeten the deal, for every person who uses the code above, Lunapads will fund one Uganda-made AFRIpad to be given to a girl in need.
Here’s a look at how Lunapads and AFRIpads have teamed up to support education for girls and local employment for in Uganda.
You’ve probably already read countless rave reviews about The DivaCup and Lunapads. So what's stopping you from giving the ol’ menstrual cup or cloth pads a shot? You could be saving yourself tons of cash and tons of grief, all while you're helping the environment and a girl in need.
