Formentera rolls out push for free and eco-friendly menstruation

foto 2022x inici periode lliureThis week marks the start of the Consell de Formentera-backed New Period campaign by Rezero to normalise and promote the use of healthier, environmentally friendly, and fair menstrual products. To that end, this morning at the Casal de Joves, Consell de Formentera employees, Susana Labrador, vice-president and councillor of education, and Vanessa Parellada, councillor of youth affairs and citizen participation, took part in a workshop concerning options in existing menstrual products shaping awareness about critical and responsible consumption.

 Over the next two weeks, the campaign will be disseminated among years four, five and six at IES Marc Ferrer through an educational programme about the different possibilities of menstrual products. Tomorrow, Thursday 20 October, there will be a session for teachers, and Friday, a session for the players of the Cosmitos women's football club. In the words of Vice President Labrador, "the initiative aims to involve local schools, associations and sports groups in strengthening and amplifying the strategy of menstrual education on Formentera".

Public workshop
Wednesday 26 October, a session will be held for associations of the island and the general public at 5.00pm in the Consell de Formentera auditorium (Sala d'Actes; Plaça de la Constitució, Sant Francesc). Next week an additional workshop will be held for adult students.

This campaign is piloted by Rezero, a non-profit foundation which emerged in response to persisting taboos and stigma around menstruation. "A lack of adequate information and education perpetuates poor accessibility to safe (toxin-free), fair (tax-free and produced in respectful conditions) and circular (reusable) products for female-bodied individuals and others who menstruate", said Rezero project manager Marta Beltran.

In fact, according to Rezero, the vast majority of menstrual products on the market are single-use items like pads and tampons with environmental, economic, health and social impacts from production to disposal and beyond.

This initiative is backed by the Offices of Education, Equality, Citizen Participation and Environment of the Consell de Formentera.

Formentera adds voice to push for liberated and eco-friendly menstruation

The Consell de Formentera is proud to announce its partnership with New Period, a campaign by Rezero to normalise and promote healthier, more environmentally friendly and fairer menstrual products. Susana Labrador, councillor of education, described plans to reach years four, five and six at Marc Ferrer Secondary School by explaining "all the options of existing menstrual products and empowering students in critical and responsible consumption".

Workshops
Information will also be provided online and through five workshops for associations and groups focused on equality and sports and staff of the Consell de Formentera. The workshops will be geared toward strengthening and amplifying menstrual education on the island.

Rezero, a non-profit foundation, emerged as an outgrowth of the taboo and stigma that persist around menstruation. Marta Beltran, project manager at Rezero, decries a "lack of adequate information and education, which perpetuates poor accessibility to safe (toxin-free), fair (tax-free and produced in respectful conditions) and circular (reusable) products needed by female-bodied individuals and others who menstruate".

Bertran also points out that "the vast majority of menstrual products on the market are single-use items such as pads and tampons, which have environmental, economic, health and social impacts starting in production and continuing well beyond their disposal". In the Balearic Islands, the over 135 million menstrual products consumed in 2019 generated about 1,620 tonnes of waste.

"From reusables like menstrual underwear, linen pads and menstrual cups, to free bleeding and toxin- and plastic-free products, better alternatives to traditional menstrual products have been available for decades", says Beltran, "but only a minority of individuals know about and use them regularly".

This initiative benefits from the collaboration of the education, equality, citizen participation and environment offices of the Consell de Formentera.
