About the Event
Sustainability is no longer about doing less harm. It’s about doing more good”. We Miltonians had a chance to know the usage of menstrual cups through this eye-opening session with Dr Keerthana Ashwin, in our school on Saturday, the 19th of August 2023, at Rayyan Hall.
Our gynaecology expert favours menstrual cups as they're cost-effective and eco-friendly. Research shows that sanitary napkins continue to be unavailable and unaffordable for many women around the world. This keeps many girls and women out of school and work. What's more, is that it puts them at risk of urinary tract infections because of the use of inferior-quality products. These reasons make it all the more important to use an eco-friendly and cheap alternative like menstrual cups. As a school we stand together to adopt sustainable practices marching to achieve our school goals.
