Menstrual products tell the story of the modern world – from capitalism and patriarchy to culture and environmental pollution. Here’s why we should be talking about them more.We’re destroying our environment at an alarming rate. But it doesn’t need to be this way. Our new channel Planet A explores the shift towards an eco-friendly world — and challenges our ideas about what dealing with climate change means. We look at the big and the small: What we can do and how the system needs to change. Every Friday we’ll take a truly global look at how to get us out of this mess.#PlanetA #Period #MenstrualCup0:00 Intro 0:58 Early inventions 2:52 Profiting from pads and tampons 5:44 Shaming and pollution7:34 More sustainable options READ MORE: Environmental fact sheet: https://www.wen.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/Fact-Sheet-Environmenstrual.pdf Menstrual health in Sustainable Development goals: https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-981-15-0614-7_44 Period poverty and its implications: https://borgenproject.org/tag/period-poverty/ Periods and the pandemic: https://plan-uk.org/media-centre/menstrual-health-day-global-period-poverty-and-stigma-getting-worse-under-lockdown Menstruation and taboos: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4408698/ https://www.brookings.edu/blog/education-plus-development/2018/09/21/3-strategies-to-address-menstruation-taboos-for-girls-in-nepal/ https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-981-15-0614-7_66 Thanks to: Helen Lynn at the Women’s Environmental NetworkHarry Finley at the Museum of MenstruationReporter: Aditi Rajagopal Video editors: Henning Ott, Henning Goll Supervising editor: Kiyo DörrerNotice: In the spirit of constructive and fair dialogue, we reserve the right to delete or report offensive, disparaging and/or racist remarks/content, insults and incitement.

Storm Tracker Forecast – Weakening Mountain Wind; Thinning Valley Smoke [Video]

Windy weather in the mountains is making fire conditions bad, and the smoke continues to keep air quality for most of our area unhealthy at best. Thankfully there will be improvement in both air quality and wind soon. The Red Flag Warning continues for the Cascades and Sierra through late tonight. There will still be some gusty mountain wind on Wednesday, though. Tonight will be hazy and smoky with clear sky above, but the haze and smoke will begin to retreat from south to north in the valley. Lows will range from the 30s and 40s in the mountains to the 50s and 60s in the valley and foothills. Wednesday will be bright and cooler with less smoke. Highs will range from the 70s and 80s in the mountains to near 90 in the valley.A flat ridge of high pressure will begin building toward California from the Desert Southwest late this week through the weekend. This will allow enough of a shift in our wind that the valley air quality should stay better than it has been the last week or so. There will still be haze and smoke, but it won’t be as dangerous. There will still be plenty of smoke around the fires themselves in the mountains. We can expect a gradual warming trend from below average to above average through the weekend, with a few clouds approaching by Labor Day. We still have no good chance of rain. Valley lows will remain in the seasonable upper 50s and 60s, while valley highs will rise from the upper 80s and lower 90s to the upper 90s to near 100.
