Talk with Environmental Activist Ella Daish

In partnership with TOTM

Join us for a talk in which Ella shares her story and #EndPeriodPlastic campaign with us in addition to educating on plastic free periods and touching on period dignity.

Ella Daish is an environmental activist and founder of the #EndPeriodPlastic campaign. Her award-winning campaign is leading to significant changes in the period industry. It has resulted in three UK retailers removing plastic tampon applicators from their products, and sparked others to develop sustainable ranges. She is influencing manufacturers and supermarkets to make real changes and councils and governments to spend their period poverty funding on eco-friendly products.

Nancy from TOTM, who we will be working with for our on-site supply of applicator tampons, will introduce herself and the company at the start of the event. Here’s some more background information on TOTM:
