The Ground Floor: MaskIT And Menstruation
Somehow, we've reached a point in history where we can talk and joke about sex--a lot--and yet never talk about menstruation. Shallan Ramsay not only talked about it, she devised a product to help women deal with periods.
Thus was born MaskIT, a compostable product that allows women to dispose of pads and tampons in public restrooms without risk of exposure to blood-borne pathogens. And the product is not all business; there are also messages of encouragement to women in the packaging.
How did Shallan Ramsay decide to make MaskIT? That's one of the first questions in this month's edition of The Ground Floor, our business/entrepreneur segment. Shallan Ramsay visits the studio.
