If you buy organic food, chemical-free personal care products, and non-toxic household cleaners, it makes sense to extend this type of care to the feminine products you use month in and month out. The average woman uses roughly 11,000 tampons in her lifetime, making the ingredients and standards by which they are made very important to her health and well being. Here are three brands worth switching to:
LOLA lets you ditch the last minute drugstore run for their organic tampon and pad subscription service delivered right to your door.
Organyc Organic Tampons are free from chlorine, wood pulp (often found in conventional tampons), and any synthetics. They are also biodegradable and compostable, meaning less waste filling up our landfills.
Natracare pads are made from organic cotton and are plastic and chlorine free. All of their products are biodegradable, making them better for the planet and you.
The INTIMA Lily Cup Compact hails from Sweden but can be conveniently found in your local drug store. These reusable menstrual cups are non-toxic and phthalate-free. Intima has streamlined their manufacturing processes to minimize their CO2 output and usage of water and energy.
