Are Reusable Menstrual Products, Cloth Pads & Menstrual Cups, Really Ecofriendly?


Are reusable menstrual products, such as cloth pads and menstrual cups, really as ecofriendly as they claim to be? There are tons of earth friendly perks to using them, but let's highlight the top three ecofriendly benefits:

Less Waste - You've likely already heard that cloth pads and menstrual cups produce less waste, but let's take this a step further. Sure, you're no longer throwing away your used tampons and pads, but you're also no longer throwing away their wrappers. Those plastic plungers for inserting your tampon and little strips of plastic paper on the wings of pads no longer end up in landfills. Take it even further, and you're also no longer throwing away their packaging and boxes, or the receipt from when you purchased them. Whew! That's a lot less waste!

Less Chemicals - The cotton used to create tampons and pads are often treated with harsh chemicals. These chemicals may leak into the waterways surrounding the factories or into the earth - plus, let's not forget the workers who are continuously exposed to these chemicals. Menstrual cups are often made using medical grade silicone or natural gum rubber. 


Reusable Menstrual Products Are.... You Guessed It: Reusable - No more single use items, most reusable menstrual products can be cleaned, sanitized, and reused for years. Plus, menstrual cups have a higher capacity than tampons while cloth pads can frequently be catered to your needs. Tampons and pads may not offer the same amount of flexibility and customization.

Less waste, less chemicals, and can be used over and over again? All sounds like super green perks to us!
