Garage Academy and LUÜNA naturals are teaming up to unpack the topic of menstrual health - one that's often overlooked in the workplace, yet affects a large portion of the workforce.

Have you ever felt confused or frustrated about periods? If the answer is yes, you are not alone. So many people in our community share your experiences, yet talking about periods with friends, spouses, colleagues, or family members can often be awkward.

Join us for an hour to have the open conversation you’ve always wanted– learn about bettering menstrual health, achieving period equity, and LUÜNA naturals’ work as a local, sustainable period wellness brand.

🙌 By the end of this workshop, participants will also receive an exclusive LUÜNA discount, so you can try the products yourself!

✨What to expect

  • Short quiz about periods
  • Fun and engaging introduction to menstrual health and equity
  • Judgement-free zone to share your ideas and questions about menstrual health

📣 This workshop for:

  • Everyone. We welcome all menstruators and allies– whether you have periods or not, we’d love for you to join.
