Period Care

Did you know that we each use around 11,000 disposable period products in our lifetimes? That’s a lot of period products.

Have you ever considered what menstrual products are made of? ⁠ We’ve been doing some research and what we’ve discovered is pretty staggering.

We talk the good, the bad, and the sometimes messy of period care and answer all your period-related questions...

To put it bluntly, conventional tampons and pads are toxic. Not only do they contain traces of pesticides and insecticides (used in the farming of non-organic cotton), chlorine (used for bleaching) and fragrances (which can interfere with the vagina’s pH balance), they also contain a significant amount of plastic.

A standard menstrual pad can be made of up to 90% plastic. Just think how unpleasant that must be for our bodies, not to mention the environmental impact. ⁠

One solution is to try using reusable period products, such as reusable pants or the trusty menstrual cup. Understandably though, they're not for everyone. ⁠So, the next best step you can take before your next period is to switch to organic tampons and pads.⁠
