Donnique Williams – Communications Manager Reep Green Solutions
Donnique is the Communications Manager at Reep Green Solutions. She has been passionate about living sustainabily for many years and recently started the journey towards a zero waste lifestyle. One day, she realized how much unnecessary waste was produced just for using disposable period products. This pushed her to start using the DivaCup, which not only decreased her contribution to the landfill but also saves her a significant amount of money! She graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University with English and Global Studies degree.
Amanda Baker, On a Zero Waste Journey
In her Zero-Waste journey, Amanda started to think about the impact of not only plastics but also the disposable menstruation products she used. After realizing how the chemicals and materials used in the disposable pads can adversely affect the environment, she started using reusable cotton pads from Party in My Pants and never looked back!
