TEACHER’S GUIDE TO PERIOD EDUCATION

Our  teacher’s guide is a comprehensive guidance plan to interact with school children ( boys / girls) opening up with discussions related to mesturation, health, mind and the environmental impact of using plastic period products.

  • Aims of the programme: The aim of the Plastfree Period Education Programme is getting to know about the awareness of periods and to encourage both genders to talk freely about it.
  • To discourage body shaming with peer pressure and to build self confidence during those days of bleeding.This is to help make children aware of body changes during mensturation, mood changes and hygiene.
  • Children should not miss school because of their periods.They should change their mindsets and discuss their difficulties openly with parents and teachers.
  • To make period related discussions a part of usual conversations and not to make it limited to women only.
  • To highlight the importance of sports and keeping active during bleeding and its effect on our body and mind.
  • To show the importance of choosing environment friendly sanitary napkins and discontinuing the use of plastic products as historically done by previous generations.
  • To be aware be of plastic pollution caused by period products can take 500-800 years to biodegrade.

We have participated in the Youth Climate Summit organised by Global Action plan to highlight the importance of not flushing period products down the toilet instead bin it!

Our collaboration with Lanes Group Plc – Unblocktober campaign was a huge success!

We have also collaborated with WASUP & donated litter picks and holders to support the community!

Frequently Asked Questions

Learn more about our products!

Is Plastfree made of Natural products?

Yes, all of the Plastfree products are hypoallergenic, free from fragrance, chemicals and are made from sustainable materials only.

How good is Plastfree compared with other similar ones?

Our products are kinder to your skin and absorbs 5 times more than the other brands. We have not only thought about the pad top layer using the best organic cotton, we have introduced a new leak proof 'biodegradable bottom layer' instead of plastic PE layer as given by others. We have also thought about 'disposal' as being an important part of the period waste. So wrapping the pad in cotton covers instead of plastic covers and no stickers certainly gives way to spread the message of being kinder to our planet and promoting good disposal habits. Our box is also 100% recyclable using paper instead of the nasty plastic as given by the giant brands. All these changes have made the product eco friendly and cetainly the right choice for you!

Are they good for heavy flow?

Plastfree products have layers of ultra-absorbent core in the pads, which firmly locks in the heaviest of flow. We are proud to say that our products absorb blood from 220ml to 500ml in our different sizes, which is 5 times of what is available.
