Meet Ari and Ella. They are two of nearly 150 Undies Warriors in the Hobart City Council area.
Ari and Ella give us the low down of why they wanted to participate in The Undies Project and what they love about reusable period undies.
The Undies Project was started by Women’s Health Tasmania to address two big problems: the environmental impacts of single use menstrual products (pads and tampons ending up in landfill) and period poverty.
We’ve been looking at the responses from people who’ve signed up to The Undies Project so far. What we are hearing is that people want to make a change to more cost effective and environmentally friendly options. But being on a low income makes it hard to do, to find the money to make the change.
The Undies Project makes it possible and a lot of folk, have great things to say about the comfort, confidence and cost saving from getting a bundle of undies.
Remember folks, Undies Warriors are made not born. We’re still looking for participants – we’ve still got undies bundles - check your eligibility for a bundle here.
And if you want to see more Undies Warriors flourish outside of the Hobart City Council area, why not make a financial donation to Women’s Health Tasmania here.
