HAVE AN eco-friendly & healthy period!
Here's our top tips for having an eco-friendly period:
Don’t flush your disposable menstrual products down the toilet; instead bag it and bin it.
Even products labelled biodegradable or flushable shouldn't be flushed, as they may take months to break down, blocking pipes and polluting marine environment until they do so.
Consider using washable pads or a menstrual cup instead of disposables – you can prevent a lot of waste, and save a lot of money,even if you only use them at night or at home.
Demand the best and safest products for yourself and the environment by asking for a full list on menstrual product packs of the ingredients and materials used.
Choose tampons and pads made from organic cotton and without plastic
Use tampons? Opt for 100% organic cotton tampons, change them regularly, at least every 6 hours and use a menstrual pad at night.
Use a menstrual cup? Opt for silicon cups and follow manufacturers advice on thorough regular cleaning. Replace any worn cup with a new one.
Avoid lubricated and/or fragranced products – they are polluting, and generate unnecessary additional exposure to potentially harmful synthetic chemicals.
Record your rhythm – developing familiarity with your cycle provides a useful indicator of your health and wellbeing, and a greater awareness of your body.
