A COMPANY has been taking action to help women in need whilst also protecting the environment.

LOVEmyBEACH has been busy distributing 3,000 reusable and plastic-free period care products to local authorities across the North West.

Anya Kuliszewski, LOVEmyBEACH Officer for Morecambe and Cumbria, commented: “The last 18 months has been a struggle for all of us, but there are some of us who are struggling more than others."

"Our work is focused on the environment, but period poverty is also an important issue faced by many women across the region, so we wanted to do something to help."

Part of the WOOP! (Wipe Out Ocean Plastic Campaign) LOVEmyBEACH in Cumbria has provided kits to local authorities to be distributed to homeless support teams.
