I have decided to jump on board with making one small change a month. A change that will in some small way, reduce my negative effect on this world. So, I am drawing attention this month to a bit of a taboo subject- women's sanitary products.
Several months ago, I swapped to using a menstrual cup, a reusable alternative to tampons. This month I have taken the plunge and also purchased some reusable sanitary pads as an alternative to disposable panty liners. The lovely pads pictured were made and purchased from a local business, Ecomoon.
Did you know that over a woman's life time, she will use, on average 4800 sanitary products, that will eventually end up in landfill? Kind of shocking, eh?
