Products to deal with menstruation are plastic heavy. They incorperate plastic and come wrapped in plastic. The way to cut your trash is to use these little beauties…..
Moon cups or luna cups – a little cup that you use internally. It collects the flow, it is then emptied washed and reused. Before you squeal and scream read this series of posts on the lady stuff by one of the best environemental writers around.
Really try them they are easy peasy and the slight inconvenience is more than compensated for by the increased comfort factor. They are far more pleasant to use then other internal protection. Look at the uk Moon cups site for more info.
These rubber cups are available from Australia
For those of you who cant face the thought of fiddling around like that how about washable reusable sanitary towels?
