Do good and reduce waste by using our reusable sanitary care products
Switching to plastic free toiletries? Don’t forget to pay attention to plastic free tampons and sanitary products. Regular tampons and pads contain all kinds of chemicals and plastic coatings that make them hard to dispose of and frankly, kind of scary when you start to think about it.
Women have the right to look after their menstrual cycle any way that they need to – so we’re not trying to bash anyone who uses regular pads or tampons. But did you know that most cotton tampons are so efficient at absorbing moisture that they actually dry out the surrounding areas too, causing that abrasive, sore feeling that you probably thought was just part of the monthly deal? Tampons are also known to leave small fibres behind once they’re removed – which doesn’t sound great for our special lady parts!
Reusable menstrual cups are surprisingly easy to use and comfortable, and because you simply rinse it out and reuse it, you’ll never need to work out how to conceal your next pad or tampon on your way to the bathroom again. What’s more, the Mooncup can handle three times more fluid than a regular tampon and it’s BPA and latex free too.
Opting for plastic free toiletries and containers is a great way to cut down on the amount of unnecessary waste you produce day to day. Plastic free tampons like the Mooncup are not only great for the environment, but also a great option for natural living and self care too.
