Comfort During Periods? With These Sustainable Menstrual Products, It Can Happen!
The heavy bleeding, cramps and PMS are bound to happen. But the least we can do is ensure comfort to ourselves without harming the environment.
Biodegradable disposable pads
Disposable pads have become the default period product for most girls. Once you learn to stick them correctly, they are super easy to use and to dump. If you are not ready to shift from sanitary pads yet, make an eco-friendly switch to pads that are made of biodegradable material like bamboo, banana fibre and cotton. This way, you stay in your comfort zone and keep the earth safe too.
Reusable cloth padsAsk your mother and grandmothers about what they used during periods as teenagers. They are most likely to tell you that cotton cloth pieces were their go-to menstrual product growing up. Today, the good old cloth has taken a more modern approach designed for your comfort. Get yourself a set of cotton cloth pads and you can reuse them every month. Made from eco-friendly material and stopping hundreds of pads from ending up in landfills every month, cotton cloth pads are an easy way to happy periods.
Many users have described menstrual cups as life-changing and I agree with them. Once you get familiar with the process of inserting and taking out the cup, the definition of periods will change for you. What’s even more amazing is that the cup is made of silicon and lasts for 7-10 years. One small cup is all the trash you will generate in a decade! Invented in the 1930s, menstrual cups have faded away from the common narrative but now is the time to bring the menstruation heroes back in the limelight.
