In celebration of International Women’s Day, we asked the women and men at Natracare HQ to tell us about an outstanding woman who inspires them! Here are some of the women we love!
Katherine Johnson: I recently watched Hidden Figures and was so inspired by the story of Katherine Johnson, a mathematician who worked at NASA from the 1950s until her retirement in the 1980s. During those early years Katherine faced a double discrimination of both racial segregation and working in a male-dominated field. Her story of overcoming these massive obstacles, and proving her intelligence and abilities in the field of mathematics, computer science and aerospace, is one that everyone should know.
‘Tis the season of spreading Christmas joy and goodwill, an important time to reach out to people in need.
For Natracare our work goes far beyond personal care products. We are a brand that thrives on supporting local, national and global organisations and initiatives all year round. For the 12 days of Christmas we want to share with you a selection of 12 of the wonderful causes that we partnered with in 2017 and the amazing work they are doing.
What you’ll need:
- 1 tampon
- A brown, red and black felt pen
- Some scrap cardboard (like the top of a Natracare box!)
- A pair of scissors
- Some glue
The lead up to Christmas usually involves eating as many sugar-coated things as humanly possible… well that’s certainly the way its going here at Natracare. But as we enter this period of treating ourselves and our loved ones, its important to be conscious about our indulgences. Here at Natracare, we thought we’d save you the hassle and research some tasty ethical Christmas treats. Let us be the shining star that guides you to keep your choices conscious and your belly ethically full this Christmas…
Here at Natracare HQ, we admit that it took a bit of head-scratching to think of some fantastic, inspiring and encouraging events that we can be thankful for this year. However, once we got warmed up, the ideas kept flowing. We found that there were actually many things to be thankful for in 2017 and it put us all in a much better mood! Here are some of our favorite and heartwarming things from the last year to which we give our thanks:
It is October, a pretty special month in the eco-conscious world. Not only is it the perfect month to take lovely autumnal walks and enjoy nature, it also is the month of Project Green Challenge.
To celebrate organic September we are giving away a Natracare period survival kit to see you through your next period!
Here’s how to enter:
- Follow us on twitter (@natracare) and retweet one of our competition tweets which we will share throughout September
- We will contact you directly via twitter in October if you have been successful
Women’s sport is starting to create space for itself in a much deserved spotlight – finally! After the recent successes of the Women’s Euro Football Cup and currently the Women’s Rugby World Cup, women are starting to get better and rightly earned coverage. No doubt there is still an incredibly long way to go, but it’s good to see change. There is clearly a thirst to see all genders take to the sporting stage. This Saturday will offer one such event in Bristol. The hilly, windy streets will transform into a super-speed highway for cyclists taking part in the annual Bristol Grand Prix.
