Sareta & Cee Catch Up
Before welcoming this week’s guest, Sareta and Chioma discussed ‘The Ultimatum; Marry or Move On’. The show’s a spin-off from the ladies’ favourite dating show, Love Is Blind, and encourages couples to put their love to the test. Hosts Nick & Vanessa Lachey introduce other potential matches. Couples have an opportunity to date and potentially marry instead of their current partners. Expect mess, tears, and tantrums; a Netflix dating show wouldn’t be a hit without the emotional recipe for disaster.
This weeks guest
Earth Week may have been last week, but sustainability and environmental awareness are for life! Sareta and Chioma continue the theme by chatting with Lauren Derrett, founder of Wear ’em Out, a reusable period pad brand that’s changing the way people period.
Lauren left school at 14 and describes herself as an introverted Jack of all trades. She started her first business aged 40 and credits her success to being open to the lessons that failure brings and can pivot at a moment’s notice.
As converts to reusable period products, the ladies are keen to understand why more of us should be using them and why it’s essential to recognise that not everyone can – and that’s ok. They also have an interesting chat about some of the sacrifices we must make, even when we want to save the planet because we do what we can. As Lauren says, “we’re here to respect the 50 shades of green”, so no judgement.
Lauren shared information about her educational Wear ’em Out packs during the show. They were created to be used in a learning environment and strike up a much-needed conversation around periods. If you’d like to learn more, visit the Wear ’em Out website – Wear ’em Out Educational packs.
More From Our Guest
Did you know that a single disposable pad or tampon takes longer to degrade than the lifespan of the person who wore it, in fact, it can take up to 800 years! Or that 4.3 billion disposable menstrual products are used in the UK every year equating to 200,000 tonnes of menstrual waste hitting UK landfills per year? The good news is, that making the switch to more eco-friendly periods is easy.
“Hey, I’m Lauren, founder of WEO. I’ve created a pretty darn cool, totally reliable and efficient re-useable pad for you to use when you’re on your period. It’s for all you eco-curious, modern people out there. It’s time to pave the way, set new trends, cross new boundaries, and be the influence all while contributing to our shared one home, our innocent and affected planet. Try it, I promise you won’t look back.” – Lauren Derrett, founder of Wear ’em Out.
