Reusable Sanitary Pads
February 20 @ 17:30 - 20:00£25
We have teamed up with Living River Foundation to bring you a series of craft workshops making products for yourself or donated to local Hygiene and Food Banks for people in need.
The products we have chosen help you save money and reduce you own plastic footprint, or helps someone else do so. Learn to make your or own or donate for those who can’t afford hygiene products.
Living River are working with Medway Food bank and Rochester Hygiene Bank so you can donate extra products you have made to go to someone who needs help to get out of poverty.
Courses are held in Gravesend, Chatham, Chatham Maritime, and Rainham. Check out the table at the bottom of the Living River booking page to find out where they are all held.
St Mary’s Island, Chatham
Reduce your plastic use by making your own reusable pads, reusing materials commonly available or thrown away.
Those of you more advanced and able to make several during the class will also be able to create privacy bags for pads donated to the homeless.
