SistahGoddess Camara welcomes back special guest Night Moore, as they discuss Eco-Bleeding and Menstrual Responsibility. Night is the author of The Ruby in the Lotus: Women's Red Moon Mysteries and Wise Wooman Wisdom; and Ragtime Revolution! Night Moore has been involved with the teaching and advocation of eco-feminism, green bleeding and women's red moon mysteries for going on two decades. Do you know that your average woman in the U.S will use and dispose of 15,000 commercial menstrual products in her lifetime?! The materials used to manufacture most pads are derived from the petroleum industry and forestry. The absorbent core, made from chlorine bleached wood pulp with the addition of polyacrylate gels. The remaining materials are mostly derived from the petroleum industry, the cover stock used is polypropylene, with the leak-proof barrier made from polyethylene film. The extraction, production and manufacture of these plastics contributes nitrogen oxide, sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide – ozone depleting gases; human toxins that lead to cancer and birth defects as well as chemicals that cause the acidification of trees. The high plastic content of these products ensures they remain in our environment for centuries as they are neither biodegradable nor recyclable. Disposal of used sanitary products by either flushing out into the oceans of the world, incinerating or depositing in landfill creates various pollutants including dioxins deposited in the sea through sewerage waste and air pollution from incinerators. Every woman can reduce waste and reduce harm to her womb by adopting simple, safe and earth-friendly practices in regards to her moon-time. We will discuss the alternatives and get your opinions.
