Buying sustainable and organic period products is now more important than ever. From organic tampons to reusable sanitary pads and menstrual cups to period underwear, here’s your guide to buying eco-friendly essentials for that time of the month.

Did you know that over 45 billion period products are used every year, and most contain plastic? Or that the average person who menstruates uses between 11,000 to 16,000-period products in their lifetime. That number is HUGE. Not only does all this plastic have a negative impact on the environment, but it’s also not particularly safe for your body. Disposable tampons and sanitary pads are often grown with pesticides, rayon, synthetic fibres, fragrances, colourants and preservatives that could be absorbed into the bloodstream via mucus membranes in our sensitive vaginas.

So how do we tackle this issue? Enter organic and eco-friendly period products. Whether you have a tween who’s just gotten their period, or you just want to find the right products, here’s everything you need to know about where to get what you need when you need it.
