Awareness, Livelihoods, Greener choices for ALL

Period Love #BleedGreen

At one point in our own cultural history, menses was revered & respected. It was a time to rest, talk & gossip with gal pals for 2-4 days a month! Over time, it’s been downgraded to a dirty secret women should lock away. It has now been perceived to be a period of misery. Lets make menstruating exciting again!! Help us spread the Period Love.

* Why Whisper, when we can talk? Sessions in communities, corporates, schools, colleges

  • * Awareness posters in women's/girls' bathrooms
  • * Donate/subsidize greener choices of period care products for the less fortunate.

Lane Composters

The Lane composters ensures that the houses in a locality compost their wet waste in their own lanes. This revolutionary decentralised model of lane composting was started in HSR and has also been adopted by Koramangala, Sadhashiv nagar and RMV stage II of Bengaluru. Composting of Kitchen waste at source reduces the amount of wet waste collected by auto tippers and garbage compactors. This in turn reduces the garbage blackspots and landfills in and around the city.

Work done till now

  1. 1. Supported "plastic ban" movement that fructified into a law in March 2016. For this we did sessions for waste volunteers as well as created standard material that was used by all volunteers - ask of items to be banned and their alternatives, database of vendors that provided alternatives, process to be followed by volunteers etc
  • 2. We helped created "Green the Red" campaign and funded it with effort and materials -artwork, distinctive marker etc. This campaign took cupserts from niche to mainstream - in fact the group changed its name to Green the Red.
  1. 3. Created "Swachh Beedhi" campaign - it encouraged people who are already composting to work towards spreading it in the their street. We created a pilot with HSR MLA and volunteer team and had 100 homes who started composting and 12 temples that started managing waste in situ. We now have a city pilot coming up that will have showcase from 6 vendors including stonesoup.
  3. 4. Period Love - Bleed Green. Version 2 of Green the Red where we have inner wheel and facebook as our partners and we have expanded scope to tackle twin issues - right thinking and right behaviour around periods. We are also training women SHGs to make cloth pads that we are selling - reusable cloth pads made in dharwad have just been launched.
  5. 5.Donation - cups or cloth pads. We have been working with donors like Inner wheel, infosys, Swachh bharat mission, ebay, ladies circle etc, media personalities like rituparna and suparnaa to raise money to donate cups and cloth pads. besides our cups, eco femme pads, safe pads and saukhyam pads have been part of these donation drives.
  7. 6. We are currently developing a campaign for natural cleaners- like pads, we would be promoting DIY, will also sell cleaners made by SHGs creating employment for urban women. Besides products produced by SHGs that we sell, we will also be promoting other natural cleaners available in the market.
  9. 7. Consulting. Have helped Gujarat government in understanding how to get citizens to adopt segregation at source, Empri staff to be trained so they can train BBMP staff for plastic ban, Tata trust in implementing segregation in muzaffarnagar, helping Swachh Balasore to understand how to sequence various activities to achieve their objectives etc.
