Women today have on average 456 periods. At about 20 tampons per cycle that’s around 9,120 tampons over a lifetime! Add to that about 5 pads per cycle to make a substantial 2,280. That is, on average, 62,415 pounds of waste per woman. So is there a way that we can keep this waste from overflowing? Meet the menstrual cup! She’ll last around 10 years which means an average of only 4 cups in a lifetime! By making this one small change, we can create friendly ecosystems, both vaginally and environmentally!
