The Tampaction Campaign aims to eradicate the use of unhealthy, unsustainable tampons and pads, institutionalize sustainable alternatives into our schools and communities, and infuse healthy attitudes surrounding menstruation into our culture's consciousness. We're letting the world know that bleedin' can be everyone's issue. In doing so, we work to destroy patriarchal taboos, end environmental degradation caused by disposable tampons and pads, and promote vaginal and menstrual health.
SO WHAT CAN I DO?
You can start the Tampaction Campaign! Get your school book or convenience store to provide healthy, sustainable alternatives to bleached tampons and pads and in the process educate your campus about the dangers of tampons and all of the sustainable alternatives that exist.
