Goods 4 Girls: There’s Always Another Way
About Goods 4 Girls:
“You may have seen the commercials… the ones describing how girls in South Africa miss school when they have their period and how buying Tampax tampons will help them. There’s also a commercial for Always pads, with a similar message. … But what are the potential problems with donating disposable feminine hygiene products? … What would be a good alternative to help out these girls but without the environmental impact? … I started Goods 4 Girls to provide the link for women wanting to donate hand-sewn menstrual pads to agencies who could provide the means to identify areas of need as well as provide the distribution to the women and girls needing the pads.”
There’s a link to this initiative over at Green as a Thistle, and it was also mentioned in the comments on Stacey May’s article on the Always Africa Campaign. But if Always can buy time on tv, the least I can do is give this excellent alternative its own post.
That’s what I’m going to do… riiiiight… now.
