So how can you have a period without plastic?
Here are the options:
- Menstrual cups - are worn internally and simply collect your flow. Made from medical grade silicone, they can last 10 years!
- Washable pads - are available in different shapes, sizes, materials, absorbencies – and colours! They can simply be soaked after use and washed with the rest of your laundry. Washable panty liners are also now available.
- Reusable period underwear - Pants that can be worn for up to eight hours and hold as much or up to four tampons’ worth of blood.
- Choose certified organic cotton and plastic free tampons and pads, that are biodegradable.
