Throughout the nation ~55 bills have been introduced to require disclosure of period products, increase access for school aged children and people who are incarcerated, or eliminate the tax on tampons!
The Week of Action is a campaign seeks to amplify the message that access to safe, affordable menstrual products shouldn’t be a privilege, but a fundamental right -- Natracare joins WVE to bring it across the pond to the US!
With a busy summer already over, we wanted to take some time to uplift and share some inspiring updates about our campaigns for safe period and personal care products.
Women’s rights activists are gathering in Tarrytown, New York, to hold a demonstration and press conference outside of Prestige Brands headquarters to protest against manipulative marketing, toxic products, and poor ingredient disclosure that puts women’s health at risk. Led by national women’s health non-profit, Women’s Voices for the Earth (WVE), and joined by Assemblymember Linda B. Rosenthal, a leader in menstrual equity policy — the event aims to send the makers of the iconic Summer’s Eve brand a strong message: products the company claims are for “feminine cleansing” are actually harmful and promote body-shaming stigmas.

It is so encouraging (and so important) to see the conversation on periods and period health move into the mainstream. Because that conversation is MOVING the mainstream.
We aim to stop the toxic assault on women’s health and the planet by engaging, inspiring, and mobilizing women to call for a thriving, toxic-free future. So just how will we do that?
From fragrance disclosure to powerful international campaigns, momentum continues to grow for the fight for safe, affordable, and accessible feminine care products!
