People for Planet

Theme: Sustainable hygiene

The easiest way to make a positive impact on the environment is to start with personal choices. Luckily, when it comes to personal hygiene, those are abundant! We want to discuss with you how to turn your bathroom plastic free, from basic care to intimate hygiene, but also talk about some of the less obvious environmental destructors, like excessive palm oil plantations, micro plastic, medication disposal and others.

Join us to share your experience on what worked for you and what didn't when making these choices.
To keep it fun and practical, we will also have a ‘Do It Yourself’ session to make a personal hygiene product from natural ingredients! You only need to bring your own jar and we will take care of the rest!

Adopting a more sustainable lifestyle can be challenging so People for Planet would like to help! With this series of monthly events, People for Planet will discuss with you the obstacles that you face and the applicable solutions to them, and also show some local initiatives that can help you in your journey.

People for Planet
People for Planet is a non-profit organisation that aims to raise awareness and to connect the local community to the systemic actors through collaborative projects in an inclusive and transparent manner. The organisation sees two streams of influence: (1) the individual impact where the focus is on what individuals can do; (2) the systemic change where the focus is on how to drive change in society. This series of events falls under the individual impact stream but this impact can have an influence on the systemic change too.

Being part of the foundation for two years now, our facilitators have experience in organising and hosting different awareness events such as a talk with Cure, the slow Fashion Meetup, a brainstorming session about waste for the City Council, and a political debate, to name a few.

Everybody interested in a more sustainable lifestyle is welcome to join! Accompanied children are also welcome.

Review from an earlier participant:
"I wasn't really sure what to expect, but it was great! Interesting topics, well explained, and I wasn't really aware of the awareness I didn't have in a lot of things and I've learnt a lot today. Seeing all those numbers and percentage lined up made me realize the importance of this. You should go to schools and keep this kind of presentations to kids. Meanwhile, I will keep on following you guys and try to be more aware. Thank you for the presentation and keep up he good work!"
