The project explores designing for non-anthropocentric, ecofeminist practices of human menstrual care. We focus on how menstrual products are made, used, and discarded, with a focus on the material waste generated both by the body (menstrual blood, mucus, and tissue) and by the products (a wide range of organic and non-organic materials such as cotton and plastics).

Through our research and practice inspired by speculative and more-than-human design, we have explored how we can design menstrual care practices that re-use and compost this material waste, opening up possibilities for cohabitation and collaboration with other-than-human species, such as bacteria and microbes, plants and insects.

This includes cooking biodegradable menstrual pads, tools and practices of fertilizing plants and soil with menstrual blood, and a Biomenstrual book of spells.
