Lunette’s mission this year is all about #PeriodPower! For the past few weeks we’ve been talking a lot about why periods are powerful, how we can start to break the taboos and spreading the word on social media. Which is all well and good but….does anyone else feel a bit disheartened by it all? We believe it’s so important to share the realities of how people’s quality of life can be negatively affected by menstruation all over the world and, crucially, how it doesn’t have to be like that at all! But it can feel a like a big problem....
