Raising awareness of plastic free periods

With this campaign, we’d like to encourage giving reusable menstrual products a #TrialPeriod for a comfortable, leak-free, more sustainable and hygienic period. So why not do a #TrialPeriod and see if it's for you! 

We’d also like to say we understand reusable period products might not be for everyone, and that’s OK. There are plastic-free alternatives available - just always remember to make sure disposable options go in the bin and not down the loo. Trial Period is brought to you by Zero Waste Scotland.
