ECO PERIOD BOX

In 2018 Ella Daish began campaigning to remove plastic from period products, which led her to take action on another issue: Period poverty. Ella created the Eco Period Box to help address this, Eco Period Boxes were placed in stores to enable customers to make a donation. 

We are delighted to be working with Ella to take the Eco Period Box online!

Why are we doing this?

Period poverty is an often overlooked problem but is widespread in the UK. Plan International found that one in 10 women aged 14 to 21 have been unable to afford period products while 49% have missed an entire day of school because of their period. Period poverty affects thousands of individuals each year including those at school, those that are homeless, refugees and those who simply cannot afford them due to financial constraints.


Who is Ella Daish? 

Ella Daish started her campaign to eliminate plastic from all period products in 2018. She has gained much recognition, with Ella being named on the Independent’s Happy List 2019, BBC 100 Women 2019, The Big Issue’s Top 100 Changemakers of 2020 and the campaign has won the Surfers Against Sewage Plastic Free Award for Best Campaign 2019. You can read more about Ella on our blog .

Ella's petition has already reached over 200,000 signatures so be sure to add your name:

 

Sign the petition to make menstrual products plastic free

 

 

Since starting the campaign she became very aware of how many problems there are surrounding menstruation. These issues ranged from the taboo in talking about periods, the environmental impacts of plastic in period products and period poverty. Ella created the Eco Period Box to highlight the issue of Period Poverty and wanted it to be focused on eco products as everyone, no matter their situation, deserves a choice in what they use.  The Eco Period Box was only available in physical stores - Ella was keen to make it available to everyone across the UK, and teamed up with us to take it online. 

 

Video Transcript:

Ella - Hi I’m Ella I’m an environmental activist and my campaign calls on manufactures and supermarkets to remove plastic from their period products. When I went into supermarkets I was faced with either plastic for plastic so I went online to search for eco period products and that’s how I stumbled across the Ethical Superstore.

I started the Eco Period Poverty Box because people in poverty have no choice about what they use and that isn’t fair. I also started it to address poverty in a way that is beneficial to the people that are using them and the planet.

AbiHere at Ethical Superstore we love the idea of Ella’s Eco Period Box and we wanted to bring it online so that everyone across the UK could get involved. When shopping with us you will have an option in the checkout to donate and for every ten items donated we will add two more. The items will be donated to the charity Changing Lives.

JoeChanging Lives is a national charity, it’s based in the North East but we’ve got projects in the North West, the Midlands and Yorkshire. We aim to tackle social disadvantage of all kinds with individual focus support we can help transform people’s lives for the better. Women and children who use our services all over the country will benefit from it, many of them can’t afford period products. For example we have a period poverty donation station in Nottingham which helps to get secondary school girls these items who can’t afford period products.

EllaI’m super excited to be launching an online version of the Eco Period Box. Let’s end period poverty together.

  • It will be bad to keep this alone to myself. I came across the best  Advance ATM CARD hacker  who really helped me to get 200,000 dollars which has a 5,000 daily withdrawal limit, they are very honest and diligent in their work. All I did was to order for the ATM card  and  after  4 working days  I received my own atm card from the delivery company with the card pin number. To my greatest surprise, the ATM card works at the ATM machine in my country   . Contact her via advanceatcard@gmail.com WhatsApp number +33758779954

  • My name is Hailey Garcia and I am from New Jersey. My herpes virus turned to war after 2 years of living with it. I have tried different medical procedures to cure my herpes but to no avail. Most people think herpes is only a minor skin irritation of which herpes has long term effects on health and passes through the bloodstream and can be easily contracted through sexual intercourse. I knew I had herpes from the first day I started feeling itchy in my pubic area and the pain was very unbearable. I couldn’t stand it anymore. After 2 years of trying other means to get rid of it, I had to contact Doctor Odunga to help me with a permanent cure. I saw his email and whats-app number from a testimony I read online from a lady who was also helped by him in curing infertility problems, I had faith and contacted him. He assured me of his work and I ordered his herbal medicine. Within 5 days, I didn’t feel any pain anymore and within 2 weeks, my skin was all cleared and smooth. I am very grateful to you sir and I write this testimony as others have done to bring those having faith to you sir. If you have herpes or other similar disease and you want it cured, kindly contact Doctor Odunga, Whats-App (wa.me/+2348167159012) OR Email odungaspelltemple@gmail.com
