You may not have thought about the environmental impact your feminine hygiene products have but you probably should. The Ocean Conservancy collected over 27,000 tampons and applicators on beaches in a single day in 2015. The materials in pads or tampons are not recyclable and take forever to break down – often decomposing in our ocean. You may be used to using your beloved tampon brand or another classic product but you should start thinking seriously about the switch. Try Organicup, eco-friendly tampons, washable pads or these alternative underwear.
