Before you buy into a new product, trend or brand, do you ask yourself what impact it has on the environment?
Did you know that conventional tampons can be filled with chemicals and carcinogenic materials that are toxic to the body? Also, most conventional tampon plastic applicators can take decades to decompose in landfills. Switching to organic cotton, fragrance free paper applicator tampons can reduce the waste in landfills as they degrade much faster. One of my favourite menstrual products is, the Diva Cup. The Diva Cup is a silicon cup that is reusable! Not only are you completely eliminating the waste that comes with all menstrual applicators, you are saving money by only having to replace it once every 1-2 years!
