For Full Circle VII we are joined by Sophie Lejeune, Director of Society Zero and TedXGlasgow speaker Victoria Heaney to chat about ‘Zero Waste Periods’.

We’ll be exploring the topic of zero waste periods by discussing period poverty, reusable period products, waste associated with period products, and more.

We encourage attendance from people who are open to being part of a group conversation. As such, tickets are very limited and we ask that you arrive to be settled and ready to start for 7. Please feel free to bring along any of your own zero waste ideas/solutions to show and discuss with the group.

Donations to secure your place will go to the Good Food Fund. Events are ticketed due to limited space for attendees, so please get in touch if you can no longer use your ticket.

The Good Food Fund is our project to help people in the community who find themselves in the desperate situation of needing emergency food aid. It is an alternative model to traditional food banks which rely on donations of tinned and dry goods from members of the public for distribution to those in need.
