That’s approximately how many pads or tampons you will use in a lifetime.
My mind explodes when I think about how much waste this creates – not just from the products themselves but also from the additional plastic packaging.
Sanitary products take hundreds of years to biodegrade. Yup. Your used pads and tampons will quite literally still be floating around in landfill long after you have passed on.
And don’t even get me started on the toxins they contain … toxins that you’re putting inside your body.
Ladies, our periods are making a right royal mess of the planet.
So what’s the alternative?
Menstrual cups, baby!
