💗Happy Valentines! 💗Sending some uterus love out into cyber space today. ・・・
This is a topic that is especially close to the heart of WEN, having spent all its glorious 26 years of campaigning engaged in a battle with the sanitary protection industry, in favour of healthier and more sustainable alternatives for women.
・・・
💗Today, the relevance and need for such a campaign was sadly highlighted by 19 year old Phobee Bambury, who narrowly survived Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) by spotting the symptoms early. The condition, that is rare but can be fatal, is caused by harmful bacteria entering the body through the use of tampons.
・・・
💗WEN has long applied pressure to demand corporate responsibility and raise awareness of TSS. So far it has managed to make it a legal requirement for all tampons in the U.K to carry a TSS warning and in 1993 made this warning label on packaging stronger and clearer, enabling women to make more informed choices concerning their menstrual health.
