From Mooncup news letter...for UK members
babybloodheart wrote in menstrual_lib
Okay, so anyone getting the Mooncup news letter knows about this, however it does not hurt to pass the message on to those who don't have the news letter. A good little one for those of us in the UK, just copy and paste the sample letter, change as you see fit, and send off to your local MP using www.writetothem.com to search on your UK post code. A quick little piece of action that could make some difference.

Jo Swinson, MP, is calling for the Government to encourage use of reusable sanitary protection in an Early Day Motion. Early day motions (EDMs) are formal motions submitted for debate in the House of Commons and are useful in drawing attention to specific events or campaigns and for demonstrating the extent of parliamentary support for a particular cause or point of view. The massive surge in awareness of real nappies over the past few years is, in part, thanks to similar Early Day Motions bringing the issues around disposable nappies to the attention of the Government. Jo Swinson's EDM is an important first step in putting reusable sanitary protection on the political agenda. You can help in this process by emailing your MP and asking them to sign the Motion. For a sample letter, contact details for your MP and to read the Motion please click here.

Getting the government behind it, what a good idea!
