Men love menstrual cups too! The Sustainable Cycles women, who are biking down the West Coast to spread the word about the benefits of menstrual cups, are sending us photos. Meet Ian, the newest addition to the Handsome Man Project. Toni and Sarah are now in Santa Cruz. Be sure to check them out at their blog.
the Handsome Young Man Project will be a whole new leg to Sustainable Cycles advocacy. Because men like contests, being told they are handsome and young, talking to women, and also prizes, each enthusiastic man who decides to be part of the project will join the Handsome Young Man Face book group and compete to see who can do the best sustainable menstruation activism by the end of 2011. The project will be based on the honor code. For every woman that he sensitively convinces to switch to using a sustainable option, the handsome young man gets one point. There are also additional points available, with discretion, for getting articles published, putting up flyers, bringing it up at a club meeting, etc, but for the most part, we want to encourage the men to talk to their close friends, sisters, mothers, or girlfriends.
