Sustainable Menstruation Awareness & Products
What is #PeriodCupCause?
This campaign began in the year 2019, on the occasion of Menstrual Hygiene Day which falls on the 28th May every year. In collaboration with Upasana Society NGO , we planned to distribute sustainable menstrual products to underprivileged girls/women throughout India.
This is an ONGOING CAMPAIGN.
We are on an #AllIndiaDrive2022 for this cause.
