For many women, having their period means a pile of trash each month – used tampon applicators, wrappers, pads, and the boxes they all came in – but it doesn’t have to be that way! There are some wonderful products on the market that keep you clean, healthy, and waste free during your period.
Instead of tampons, try a menstrual cup. They are just as easy to use once you get the hang of it and can be used each month. They are made of silicone and so are a cleaner product to put into your body than most tampons. I can personally recommend the Diva Cup, but there are other options on the market as well.
And if you want an alternative to pads, I can also recommend Thinx, which are an absorbent underwear line that keep you safe from leaks. They come in all kinds of cute styles and are easy to wash and dry.
With this combination, you can have a zero waste period. After all, we women need to take care of our Mother!
