Ecological menstruation?

Let's talk about menstruation:

What a beautiful gift to be a woman! Yes all the same, but every month the fateful moment comes back: menstruation. I would like to share with you my version of a livable menstruation. When I say livable, it is because I think that we all live differently, depending on the relationship we have with his body. Me, if I had been told 10 years ago that one day I would discover the miracle tool, I would not have believed it. But, I really want to mention that every person lives this moment differently and that I only share my reality.

The menstrual cup! Did you know it dates from 1867? (Clearly not the same models as today) but, even so, the idea is not recent. In the 1950 years, this is where the tampons are invented and it is at this moment that the solution of the menstrual cup takes a little edge. It is true that in those years the concept of ecology was not the subject of the day. Over time we ended up no longer hear about the cup, until there is no year when the cup remakes appearance.

The positives of using UPC:

  • I personally find that it is less trouble. Besides that, contains a lot.
  • Another reason that convinced me to change to the cup is that the pads are filled with chlorine, have been bleached and in addition release dioxin into your body. So that's for sure that it's the job, but when you think about all the toxicity that tampons contain, you change your mind quickly enough.
  • Another reason that my liver should be a priority for every woman is that tampons and towels are thrown away, you already knew, but do you know how important it is to global pollution?


"12 billion sanitary napkins and 7 million tampons are thrown annually into the world. "

I do not need to do a lot of research on the internet to find a ton of articles on the subject. We went to 2019 and I think it is important to change our habits and educate our neighbors on the use and tools related to menstruation.

  • It is discreet, easy to carry. No need to have 10 tampons in your bag and always think of having on hand.
  • There is no smell. This too is an important point, I will not go into detail in the subject, but really you know what I'm talking about.
  • We are talking about 10 years of use.
  • The cost of single-use towels / tampons: It starts to cost a lot when you have to budget for all of this (I almost never exaggerate) with the cup talking about 40 $ once .

I actually have a list full of good reasons for anyone to use a cup and yes I will meet people who will tell me: but how do we do in public toilets? It's really not hygenic blah. But me, that's my opinion and there are also other eco options available to you such as the towel or even the washable panties! Just get informed and find out what works with YOU and your way of life.
