Minh Ngoc, founder of Green Lady Vietnam, was first introduced to menstruation cloth pad in 2016 when she was attending an Ecovillage Design Education course in Thailand. She was amazed on how diverse people are in finding ways to deal with their period. Menstruation is considered taboo in Vietnam, so she grew up in an environment where people are not supposed to talk about menstruation in public. This pushed her to start a project that aims to normalize menstruation. Green Lady Vietnam is a social enterprise about environment and women empowerment. Her business helps promote green living lifestyle and provide education to empower women.
