Making a meaningful contribution to protecting our environment can be as simple as changing a few habits, small changes like swapping to Menstrual Cups can empower you to make a difference.
Menstruation is often be an un-discussed topic, “out of sight out of mind” - but ignoring the environmental impact is not doing us any justice.
Ever consider where your tampons and pads end up after you dispose of them? In one woman’s lifetime she will use around 9,000 -12,000 sanitary products, a huge amount of waste that is ending up in landfill or washing up on our shorelines. Not to mention the awful process of manually sorting our sanitary waste prior to water treatment. Next time think twice before flushing them down the toilet.
Beyond the landfill effect of this amount of waste, there is also a large environmental price paid during the manufacture of sanitary items. Our habit of buying disposable tampons & pads serves the large sanitary protection manufacturers very well and the environment very badly.
1 reusable Menstrual Cup lasts 10 years doing the same job as thousands of tampons! Menstrual cups are a sure way to reduce your environmental footprint, and it’s kinder to your body.
