Reusable Pads Or Menstrual Cup? Check These Eco-Friendly Alternative Products For Your Periods

92

According to the Women’s Environmental Network, a woman will go through an average of more than 11,000 disposable menstrual products throughout the course of her life, which is an extraordinary amount of waste. Tampons, pads and panty liners amount to more than 200,000 tonnes of waste per year.

While pads and tampons may seem like the most practical sanitary products to invest in, there are a number of alternatives that have recently emerged on the market that are far more affordable, comfortable and environmentally-friendly.

The easiest way to start using eco-friendly products is to try reusable pads.

While purchasing one of their pads will cost more than a normal sanitary towel, they do cost less in the long run as they can be easily washed after use.

Simply rinse in cool water, machine wash and dry and voila! It’s good as new.

Imagine how liberating it would feel to wake up one morning while you’re on your and not have to worry about rummaging in your bathroom cupboard for a tampon.

The pants hold anything from a half to two tampons worth of blood, depending on the absorbency you go for.

Talk of the menstrual cup has been circulating at an increasing rate over the past few years.

The cup is made from medical grade silicone and, once inserted into the vagina, can collect blood for as long as 12 hours.

One of the most well-known brands that produce the product is Mooncup but there are lots of alternatives today.
