The Truth Behind Biodegradable Pads and How to Make Your Period Better and Sustainable- Smita Kulkarni, Stonesoup- 56

2/9/2021
Many of us are aware that disposable pads generate waste that won’t be decomposed for hundreds of years. Even biodegradable disposable pads take at least two years to decompose which again is too long compared to the guidelines for degradable waste. Degradable waste has to decompose in 45-60 days to be used as compost. This shows that any kind of disposable pads aren’t good for the environment.

How We Unknowingly Teach Our Kids that Femininity is Lesser and How to Do Better- 52

1/12/2021
It’s not just about the colours or the kind of toys a kid plays with; the tendency to belittle ‘womanly’ things is much more deep rooted. Even though the world’s most famous designers and chefs are men (this is the topic for another discussion), people still mock a boy who likes to cook, sew or wear makeup. When did cooking become girlish or even if it was, why is it not the right thing to do for a boy? People let their boys wear mom’s heels at home but not outside. It’s even more...
