The average woman uses 11,000 tampons in her lifetime——a good reason to be concerned about what’’s in them. “They can contain undisclosed chemicals and additives that could cause rashes, burns, and more serious problems,” says Alexandra Scranton of Women’s Voices for the Earth. Plastic applicators are less than eco-friendly as well. Three chemical-free alternatives that have biodegradable applicators (or none at all):

The Honest Company‘s new Organic Cotton Tampons with the first plant-based applicators ($7, honest.com) green feminine products
Natracare Organic All-Cotton Tampons ($6, walgreens.com) green feminine products
Seventh Generation Chlorine-Free Organic Cotton Tampons ($6, walgreens.com) green feminine products
